About Us

We are two best friends (and roommates!) who have fallen in love with fashion. After being inspired by several fashion blogs, we've decided to think a little longer about what we put on in the morning. :P So join us as we keep calm & style on!

about erin
Hello, I'm Erin! I tend to land myself in awkward situations and I have a tendencey to say things that sound dirty...but really aren't. My family, friends, and boyfriend are a huge part of my life - if not for them I wouldn't exist (literally!). I love large puppies, hot drinks, sashimi, Disneyland, and anything having to do with love. I hope you enjoy my adventures!

about caroline
Hiya, I'm Caroline! I love photography, Harry Potter, anything related to Disney/Disneyland, corgis, and baking. Most of all, I love my family, friends and boyfriend -- all of which will eventually appear in my posts. :) I'm simple, awkward and dorky - so prepare for that, haha. :D

Spring Break Project #2: Dress --> Skirt
Tuesday, March 29, 2011

So here comes the results of my next Spring Break project! Yesterday I went to my cousin's house who is so amazing and talented with a sewing machine and she taught me some tips and tricks. I will be writing more about her in another post because she really is great!

Yesterday she taught me how to sew and inserting elastic for things like pajama pants, or in this case, a skirt!

Here's the dress (stolen from my own Facebook, haha):



Or you might recognize it from this post:



Well, I love this dress. But over time, it just got way too short and the top got really loose. Naturally, this saddens me because I love the pattern and I always want to wear it out (especially to church), but can't because of how short and loose it is.

So I decided to make it into a skirt!


Tadaaa! Now it's a skirt!


Skirt: Refashioned by me || Shirt: Forever 21 || Chambray Shirt: Thrifted || Belt: Thrifted
Tights:Target || Necklace: Present || Purse: Present || Sunglasses: Forever 21


I actually copied this style from Erin -- we haven't posted the pictures yet, but she inspired this outfit for me. Or rather, I copied it very closely.

Also, hope you enjoyed the photos -- shoutout to my Mommy who took them! It was both fun and funny. x)



P.S. A word of advice from Aslan, don't forget to stop and smell the... hibiscus flowers. :P

I love the dress as a skirt, especially with the buttons down the middle. Ah, I can't get over how crafty and creative you are!

Asian is so cute smelling flowers. I had to show the picture to my friends, haha.
