Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Well Christmas has rolled around once again and 2011 is just moments away. I decided Christmas day was the perfect day to wear and embrace my first try at making a pouf skirt; enjoy the company of great friends; eat and drink myself merry until I have to loosen my waist band, and then sit back, reflect and give thanks for all that 2010 has offered.

For this skirt I would say that I referenced the Christian Dior 1950s New Look. This fabric is among the many that I have sitting here collecting dust but every time I saw it I would picture a poufy bottom or a wide bottom with a very small cinched waist which reminded me of the 1950s New Look silhouette. So I decided to finally try making such a skirt and below you can see the results.

I then figured i could complete the look with an American Apparel lace fitted tunic, i figured this would emphasize the cinched waist.

I must say I had not worn a pouf skirt for a very, very long time and a small part of me felt like Little Bo Peep looking for her sheep but at the same time it was a fun look with a flirty feel and it cannot hurt to feel flirty once in a while! So I was off to flirt, mingle and enjoy the beautiful day :)

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and I am looking forward to a bloggy new year!!!!!
