alyssabird 's Thoughts:

One amazing thing about being a designer is knowing how to make anything you see in the stores. Back in September when I was in NY I went shopping at the Free People Store and fell in LOVE with this navy plaid maxi skirt. The skirt was like $300, and that is def. out of my ‘starving artist’ budget so I finally got around to making a similar skirt for myself. I love it, I am so happy with it. I have never been a fan of wearing real fur. Just the thought of wearing anything thats real fur, even if it is vintage really grosses me out. I love the look, but I just have a hard time being around it. Lucky for me I found this cute faux fur at Urban Outfitters! So much better then wearing the real thing. I used to have pet bunnies and it just makes me feel bad seeing people wear real fur, I just think its like wearing one of your pets and I wouldn’t want to do that. However, I am not going to be someone who tells people who enjoy wearing real fur that they shouldn’t wear it, because I hate people who force their opinions on others. Wear what you want, wear what makes you happy. :)

Anyways, I hope everyone had lovely holidays!

I am in love with this look! I purchased a similar skirt several months ago, and it's been languishing in my closet ever since. Your outfit makes me want to wear it asap! (And I love your comments about fur. I feel exactly the same way.)
