Recreating the look : my $6 skirt

A few weeks ago, I had to have my picture taken for a feature in a local magazine. It focused on my jewelry, so I packed up some pieces and displays. I wasn't sure what to expect, but made sure to dress myself appropriately as well.
When doing this, I have sortof a checklist.....

Statement necklace I made? Check!

Some kind of peacock print? Check!

Coordinating pieces simple and basic? Check!
I got this skirt at the end of the season last year, on clearance at JCP for $6!!! What a great find! It is a thick satin-like material and even paired with my basic black tights and tee, the patent leather shoes and blingy necklace make it a great holiday outfit as well.

 I am wearing a statement necklace I made in 2009.
Also purchased in 2009, were the teal green heels I am wearing. I bought them to go with a specific dress, and who knew how much wear I would get from them for years to come. I love when that happens. I guess I tend to wear a lot of teal colors though, so it's easy.
The article is in this month's issue of Scene Magazine. Thank you to Scene, as well Linda Holderbaum at The Art Center of Battle Creek for writing the feature.
