What the Designer is Wearing This Season (part 2 in an occasional series)

In order to fill space and kill time I have been meaning to post some more of the things that I make for myself that no one ever gets to see online.
This new red skirt is making it's first outing tomorrow, when I will wear it to a dress rehearsal at my theater job. It's my very favorite color, so you will probably see it popping up pretty regularly if you pay attention to my wardrobe. The fabric is a cotton poplin with a touch of lycra in it and the design is a very simple tiered peasant style that can be styled in lots of retro ways. The little top was purchased a million years ago at Target but had a plunging neckline that I am not entirely sure who could wear out in public, really, so I added the little panel to the top. The necklace here was made by Christina (she doesn't have an Etsy store yet, so we should all encourage her, yes?) and is made from vintage rosaries and jewelry findings and a tintype.
My perfect pair of maryjanes is still out of commission (I swear I will take them in to be fixed SOMEDAY) so I will be wearing gold wedge sandals with this tomorrow night.
