How to Wear DIY: I love this skirt! High-low shimmery vintage skirt makeover in a winter party look

Happy holidays! Hope you had a great Christmas and are enjoying this magical-but-kind-of-awkward in-between time of year before New Year's. We're on a little holiday this week but I brought my laptop, and have a How to Wear DIY to share with you, perfect for the holidays.

I'm super excited about this look because this is exactly what I had in mind when I saw this funky 90's vintage skirt at Goodwill and brought it home to make over. I wore it last weekend for a holiday get-together with family, and it was perfect!

I got a little creative and paired it with my new fave cozy cable sweater and black tights, because... brrr. Contrast!

I also got a chance to wear (well) this gorge necklace that was a gift from Favery, a flash sale jewelry site started right here in Portland. Anne from Favery has had us Portland Bloggers over to their super cute space a couple times now, most recently for a trunk show!, and I got to try this lovely rose gold long necklace by Jules Smith.

Sweater: Old Navy. Shoes: Target via Goodwill. Necklace: Jules Smith, c/o Favery Skirt: DIY makeover, here!

Simple but special, with shimmer and rose gold! And the funky high-low skirt with tulle petticoat sewn in.

What are you wearing to parties this Christmas-New Year's time of year?!


  1. That skirt is stunning! If I knew how to sew even the tiniest bit, I'd be all over it!!

  2. That outfit looks really cool! I love your skirt. :)

  3. I still think you would look fab with a waist cyncher, a bit corsety.

  4. Well that skirt is gorgeous! Almost makes me want to try a little DIY project of my own lol. :)

  5. Suzannah, this is the perfect combination of white and black. Amazing!

  6. This is a great article and this dress is beautiful. I have been into fashion for a long time and I enjoy finding new designs like these. Since the new year has arrived, there are a lot of new fashion trends coming out. Some new women styles such as Day Dresses are really fashionable and can be worn all year around.
