Black Cherry

It's the last day of the black out challenge. If you don't wear black, this may have been easy for you. I had some difficulty as I chose to not wear even black accessories. Every year, I promise to toss this skirt out. It's made from OOP M4783. The waist is a tad to big and I am not sure about the length. But she keeps resurfacing. Today, I piled on a massive amount of silver jewelry. The sandals, I spray painted an hour before leaving the house. Thanks goodness for quick drying craft paint. But I do recommend that you let things thoroughly cure for at least 24 hours.

I can see why your skirt keeps re-surfacing, it looks awesome.

Lovely skirt and like the idea of spray painting your sandals. Is there prep work before spraying them. You have me thinking about doing that to a pair of sandals.

I love this print. In fact, I think I want everything in your wardrobe! I haven't worn black at all this week, although I did wear black shoes the other day. I have worn a lot of orange and I didn't realise how much of it there was in my wardrobe until this week!

Maybe you should consider having the skirt tailored a bit, it's a gorgeous pattern and shape.

Very nice skirt. Is your hair long? Do you have dreads?

This is a really beautiful skirt. I agree you should keep it... it's lovely and classic, in a really good way!
Wow, I never would have thought of spray painting my own sandals, this is a very clever and creative idea.
