Finished Maxi Skirt! (OOTD & Giveaway Announcement)

I finally finished my maxi skirt! I couldn't be more excited about it. This is my first big project. I've made some things before but this took a lot of work. I made it with the help of my fashion/textile instructor (<3) and it fits like a glove. The best part is, I spent no money to make it. I found roughly a yard and a half of this material in the supply closet, drooled over it, and decided I needed a great maxi skirt.

Anyway, I'll likely wear this outfit tomorrow.
black lace top: thrifted / mauve fringed clutch: H&M / rings: F21 and Charlotte Russe / skirt: complete DIY / round sunnies: Pacsun / black bowler hat: TJMaxx (of all places!) / gray oversized cardigan: Pacsun (belongs to my brother) / neude platform wedges: F21

And now for the GIVEAWAY NEWS!
I've decided, since I reached 100 lovely followers, that I'm going to do a giveaway! I mentioned this before but it was only a hint.
What? I'm going to DIY two collars: one with a Navajo inspired design and one with metallic paint and studs.
Who? This giveaway is open to my followers (you must be following me! I will check) in the US.
When? The contest is open until December 20th. I can't give a specific date that I'll be able to ship them out (money's sort of tight) but I'll try to do it asap.
How? To enter this contest you a) must be following me on Blogspot, and b) have to comment here with your name and email (only one entry per person!). That's all (:

On the 10th, I'll pick a random winner, announce it, and shoot them an email.

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned. <3
