Breezy Days: The Miracle of a Tailor

The Miracle of a Tailor

February 10, 2013
I got this skirt as a Christmas present in high school.
There was only a size 12 {not my size} left at Anthropologie 
and I picked it out regardless and asked for it as a gift.
I wore it even though it was a tad loose, but this past 6 months I've been determined to get more in shape, and its been driving me crrrrazy that this gorgeous skirt doesn't fit the way I need it to.
I finally sucked it up and paid the 20 bucks at the tailor to get it brought in, and I'm seriously so glad that I did! 
I feel like I've lost 15 pounds, what the heck?!
I already have to get straps brought up and hems taken up because of my 5'3 height, but it was a new thing for me to have something taken it at the waist.
Such an ego boost too!
I'm totally with Clinton & Stacy when they say that a tailor is the key to having an awesome wardrobe.
I miss What Not to Wear, I need to track it down online to catch up on it :)
Anddd this was Ryan's get-up for church.
He is learning to pair colors together and I loved the salmon pink with the eggplant purple, classy!
PS, who watched Nashville this last week? WHAT THE HECK?!
I looooove Deacon :D
