all it takes is a long skirt, a needle, and some thread.for this little bubble.
long enough to be halved in length
an elastic waistband to sew into
a light fabric that will work well doubled in thickness (the one i used was totally see-through un-bubbled)
basically, i just sewed the bottom hem of the skirt into the inside of the elastic waistband. i pinned it first to make sure it was even and left some slack in the thread to make sure the stitching would not pull out when the elastic stretched.
i got this hat on one of my first trips to l.a. with the boy, but i could never wear it when i lived in vegas because it was always too warm for hats. so i left it with my sister for my niece's costume box, then i saw it there this summer and reclaimed it. the hat is back!
winter shorts: thrifted in the middle of the summer 
big brown sweater: secondhand the limited 
gray heather tights: simply vera
boots: ebayed brazilian riding boots 
structures seminar (with a video on domes and mid-morning popcorn!) and thesis proposal turning-in. seventy-three pages all stapled! and then IKEA with my mama. i heart me some swedish flat-packed furniture.
i've been clearing out my closets (in an attempt to turn that into a singular noun) and so instead of bagging up all of it, i thought i'd see if any bloggies would be interested in any of it. so here's the deal:
everything is either a size small or extra-small. i'm five foot five, so if that helps you gauge sizes from the pictures.

i will be covering the cost of shipping, so this is only open to the contiguous forty-eight. (sorry, canada)
