Chevron Pencil Skirt

Merry X-mas everyone!
This year the bf & I decided not to exchange gifts and save our money for a vacation instead. I seriously don't need any more "stuff" in my life and would rather spend valuable time with loved ones and friends. Well X-mas eve rolls around and my bf gives me an envelope. I thought how nice, he got me a card. I ripped open the envelope and $500 fell out. Omg, I said no gifts and I refused to take the money. I feel that X-mas has gotten out of hand with bigger and more expensive gifts every year. It's not what the holiday is about (to me at least). LoL. I sound like a total Scrooge, but I'm okay without gifts and I'd rather spend time and experience something together than get an item that I'd forget about next week.

Anyway, I been meaning to post pictures of this chevron skirt that was made by the talented SewPetiteGal. I've always had difficulties finding skirts that fit my waist and was ecstatic when I found that SPG opened up an etsy store for those who wanted a piece of her custom made creations. 
I went to her etsy store and browsed through her different fabric selections. I ended up picking this chevron print because I loved it so much when I saw it on Elle from FFFF.
This skirt fits me so well and am so happy that there are no alterations needed like other skirts I have bought in the past. Sorry I forgot to take close up pics, but the finishing and the details are polished and so professionally sewn. My bf loves it too and couldn't believe how well it fits. Thank you so much SPG for making me this beautiful skirt!

  1. I've been meaning to buy a skirt from SPG! The fit looks amazing on you, and that print is lovely!! Hope you had a Merry Christmas and have a wonderful vacation (when you do go), Ping! :)

  2. I love this chevon print on you. It was so nice of T! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I completely agree with you about Christmas. Saving $$ for a vacation is a way to go. Happy Holidays to you both!

  3. Merry Christmas, Ping! I just love SPG's skirt on you and am envious you two got to hang out. So sweet of your bf to try and sneak you a gift. We didn't exchange gifts either this year - I completely feel you in that there's nothing we 'need' and would rather spend the time with friends and loved ones. Can't wait to hear where you guys ended up choosing for vacation and see the pics, too!

  4. You look so pretty! I love how you're wearing it and thank you for the kind words! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you will have a fantastic New Year! For X-mas, hubby and I exchanged nominal gifts, but spent the bulk of our gift attention on the little ones :)
