Night + Day







[NIGHT: DIY Dries skirt, vintage blazer & jewelry, XXI tank, Nine West heels]
[DAY: DIY Dries skirt, XXI top, Target socks, Nine West heels, vintage sunnies, old school Dooney & Burke purse]

I'm completely enamored with this mint green Dries Van Noten DIY skirt. It was super easy to make! I wore it for the first time yesterday, keeping it casual and slouchy a la the runway show, then wearing the skirt with bare legs and a tailored jacket for night.
As I was saying previously, I was lucky enough to model at an event for a local art gallery. It's a great downtown space: vintage shop meets art gallery meets party space. The theme was "Mad Hat," with adorable cocktail hats designed by Erin Lee Benson, and makeup done by the sweetest MAC employee ever.
All in all it was loads of fun - who doesn't love getting dolled up and being the center of attention?- the atmosphere was so laid back. There were all types of models, from professional to first timers. The gallery kept the wine and music flowing, I can't wait for next time!
