Death Take Your Fiddle

flawless vintage Grateful Dead tee - flea market // vintage denim skirt - Captain's Helm + DIY // sweater and sunglasses - Melrose Trading Post // hat - vintage // necklace - Etsy trade // boots - thrifted

So this skirt you see here was actually at about knee-length.. The most awkward and undesirable length for anything, whether it be shorts, a dress, and especially a skirt (for me, at least). I cut the skirt after trying it on later at home, and nearly cut it too short. My heart increased to a startling speed and I felt my stomach sink. The feeling I felt in my body was similar to the feeling one gets when someone breaks up with them even though they thought that the relationship was just dandy and on it's way to hitting its one year anniversary. That's as close as I can get to the feeling. Out of fear, I didn't try it on after cutting it because I already knew I cut it too short, obviously, because I am an impatient person who never does anything good with scissors except cut up t-shirts and destroy lives. My mom finished the hem on her machine so the edges wouldn't be raw, and after I tried it on, all finished and stuff, it ended up being the perfect length. There's your story of the day. My stomach didn't sink because I found out I have diabetes or someone died -- but because I thought I cut my skirt too short. Ha. Can someone teach me how to be a good human already? America has screwed my brain up! Maybe it's all the cheese I eat?

I had the exact same thing happen to me a couple of days ago, when I was hemming a skirt I got from Goodwill! I always freak out unnecessarily about clothing.

As someone who's cut countless skirts too short, I relate profoundly to your story. I've definitely shown a lil bit of butt cheek in a pair of shorts that I refused to admit were too short. Fortunately, your skirt really is the perfect length and you look bangin!

Hi! I just recieved the cat beanie I ordered from Miracle Eye a while ago today, and I love it! I also realized I bought a dress from you February 14th last year, which coincidentally was the same date I ordered the beanie. I thought that was mildly amusing. I love both items and I'll definitely come back and purchase another item February 14th 2014, haha.

This look is perfect...I love every outfit you put together, you really have a way with clothes! I did that with a pair of shorts last year, the only difference being that I actually did cut them too short. Oops.

omfg but that skirt is perfect. I love it. I relate 2 ur strange tales of clothing terrors. I cut my first and ~only~ pair of cut-offs this summer and they were too short and it was THE WORST but then I was like "w/e i can work with this" and then wore gold sparkly spandex under them and werked it.
ALSO ON A SLIGHTLY UNRELATED NOTE: I got my furry rainbow BEAUTY of a coat the other day from Miracle Eye and it is perfect and u r perfect. A+ to u <33

Hi all, here every one is sharing such experience, so it's nice to read this webpage, and I used to pay a quick visit this web site every day.

They do not insert secret or additional advertising in our material.

One of my favorite ones is where the thanksgiving turkey is hiding from a
guy, who apparently wants to get him in the
oven, by placing a lampshade on his head and standing on a dresser
so he looks like a lamp. The world will suddenly look a
much better place to live in.

Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly
don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
