make the cut

I bought this skirt to wear on my birthday 8 years ago! It’s a Club Monaco piece that hit me right at the knee, until I got it tailored last year. I’m a big fan of altering old digs to reinvent them a bit. Nothing crazy, just an update to get me excited about wearing it again. 

It’s a new week y’all! Happy Monday! What are you excited for this week? I’m excited to hit up a couple of LA Fashion Week events (that I’ll be sure to document here and on Instagram), to attend the screening of a short film I’m in called SMILE, and most of all, I’m excited that my mom is coming to LA on Saturday to look at wedding dresses with me!!! I have lived in LA for 8 years and all it took was getting engaged to get my mom to visit! Ha! What’s your week look like? Anything fun, scary, exciting going on? Let me know in the comments, would love to hear from you!

    Grasie, what’s the comfort level on those? I know J.Simpson’s shoes are known for their padding (much like the cute curvy girl herself) but I’ve only experienced the peep toes…do those hold up with ease throughout the day? Or better just for a few hours @ a time?

      They are padded and pretty comfy but super high, so personally I say, just a few hours.
