Pink Leather Skirt



When: 4th of July weekend at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival.  Save yourself the trouble and skip this event in the future.

This Adam Lippes skirt, which I found buried in the sale rack at Nordstrom Rack last fall, was something I wouldn't have normally tried on.  Once I did though I fell in love with it, except for one thing.  The skirt was a mini and a size 10, which was 2 sizes too big for me, however I noticed that letting it sit lower on the hips instead of at the waist made it seem more "adult" if you will.  Not the 40 something flashy trying to recoup those college days, if you understand what I am saying.  So keeping in mind that the length was great, but the hip area now made me look like I had wings, I decided to ask alterations if they could do their magic.  Unfortunately Nordstrom Rack does not have a leather sewing machine available to alter clothes, so I had to go to a specialist.  The alteration cost was about $60, but I couldn't be happier.  It just goes to show that if you keep an open mind about what things can become, they do!
