ace bandage.

top photos are the REAL DEAL, bottom photos are mine. obviously.
i spent the evenings this week making my own version of the $495 alexander wang ruffle skirt i can't afford and am totally thrilled with how it came out. i spent around $30 on materials and altogether the project took 4-or-so hours; it fits like a dream (i traced a skirt i already owned as a pattern) and i'm planning on wearing it roughly ten million times over the next several months. my version is RUFFLIER than the original but the color match is actually pretty spot-on - the photo came out much deeper because i refuse to use the flash indoors. i've got enough of the nude material left to attempt a bandage skirt, but i think i'll save that project for when tights-and-boots weather is in full effect...

I'm super impressed!

And I'm thrilled to know there's another DC-er who's totally head over heels for Mssr. Wang.

Awesome all around!
