simplicity 1873 double shot: i am a pretty pretty princess in a cellophane skirt

may i present my birthday outfit!


i made the gray renfrew in the hour before i had to leave for dinner with the fam. which meant i was almost half an hour late after testing the renfrew with different combos for the best effect.


but this was my first love, in terms of pairing. i love the light, airy, poofy skirt. don’t get me wrong – i know i need to tack down a few of those pleats before they just float away – but how awesome is the texture of this skirt?

20140317-201020.jpgit’s my first renfrew-with-cowl, and i am not sure i am loving the cowl.  i may have to explore alternative cowl options in future.  and of course you know it is my second simplicity 1873.  this is in marc jacobs cellophane from mood.  seriously.  cellophane.  they have, like, an entire shelf of different kinds of cellophane.  what’s great is that it’s a wide bolt, so i got a good bang for those bucks, but i’m not gonna lie – we are talking $$$.

for saran wrap.

good thing it looks so hot!

    LOOOOVVVVVEEEEE! But I don’t understand what you mean by “cellophane”. Like, clear plastic? Details please!

    Does it make a crinkling noise when you walk or sit? What other applications, besides a skirt, would you use a cellophane fabric for? This is the first time that I’ve heard of that for apparel.

    Don’t you dare tack down those pleats! Let them float in every which way because for cripe’s sake, it’s your birthday (happy bday!)

    Whoa. Thank goodness I will be on the road all week and unable to get to Mood. This is AWESOME! Love it (and the last one, too). Although I am terribly confused about when your B-day actually is and hoping that’s because you are celebrating all month long. 😉

    I’m trying to imagine this fabric in real life and it is blowing my mind. Happy birthday!

    Amazing yet again….the skirt has such a perfect shape, and works beautifully with the top…..I am intrigued by the fabric needless to say and will have to stop by Mood this week to check it out of course! Happy birthday!!!
