Wardrobe Contest Update

I LOVE MY SKIRT!!!  It's light, it's cool, it's comfy.  It's so unusual and it fits.  This is the Burda magazine skirt 6/09-103.  I see that it needs to be ironed better so I'm doing that after I post.

Also, this is the top from the Wardrobe contest- 4/10-102.  It's blousey (sp?) and low cut.  Very reminiscent of the '40s.  Again, nice and cool for the summer.  I'll review them more later- just getting the pictures up now.

Action Shot- see the wrinkles???  Not the ones around my knees the ones at the seam.

I've deleted the failure of a blouse and now need to fill it's space.  There is a top from Modellina I've been wanting to try so it might fill the emptiness.  Boy, did I need some summer clothes that were stylish.
It's funny, my legs don't look so white in person.  Is it because I'm getting older?  They look tan in person but not in the pictures.  Is this what I have to look forward to?  Gosh, does anything get better with age other than wine? 

A family wedding is coming  up in 2 weeks so I'm going to abandon my plan and continue to the dress for the wedding.  Lots of pictures are coming.  Honestly, I was hoping to have a swimsuit finished for the party as well.  Oh well, I should be happy with what I've accomplished so far.  Really, I spent the evening playing on the internet- poor use of time...
