It's OSCAR Week friends!! This is one of my most favorite times of the year... I catch up on all the Oscar nominated movies, get together with friends to watch the awards, and then comment on EVERYTHING! The clothes, the speeches, the winners..
It's one of my yearly traditions that I always look so forward to.
In the spirit of Oscar, this week is going to be all about the nominated movies, with each day being a different Oscar movie-inspired-outfit. Today's feature is Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained!
Yep, I found something with chains!
The print on the skirt was amazing...
I wish that necklace was real and in my possession. Girl can dream...
The skirt was a bit too big...
...but an easy tweak is ahead!
It reminded me of a scarf, and I was thinking of cutting the fabric and turning it into something I could wear on my head, however I wanted to highlight the fabric more. I brought in the sides of the skirt just a few inches and placed pins down.
The elastic waist was pinned and then I stitched it all in place.
Instead of making it a more fitted skirt, I brought it up and turned it into a top! We had a freakishly warm weekend (75-80 degrees) so I just had to take advantage. I wore a skinny brown belt to cinch the waist, however wearing it flowy would have been just fine in my book too! I paired my top with my red boots, skinny jeans, and my vintage chain!
Chains on my shirt, chains 'round my neck!!
I did toss on a cropped jacket when the sun set...
A new Oscar nominated movie tomorrow!!
