Weekend Wear: Trying on some color

This teal skirt is my first attempt to add some color to my wardrobe.  I found it at the thrift store last week for $1.50 but it was a little too long, so I hemmed it.

I have never hemmed a skirt before and I don't think I did a very good job.  Maybe ironing it will help get rid of that poofy-ness at the bottom?

What do you think?  My husband said "I think it looks like you hemmed it."  Nice. Real nice.

I considered leaving it calf length but I felt like I looked like my grandma.

Who am I kidding? My grandma would have never worn polyester.

She had standards. 

In other news...while thrifting last week I also bought a vintage Coach purse.  I love it and was so happy when I spotted it, but....it smells of smoke.  Like it lived-inside-a-casino smoke.

So, this week I am going to try odor eaters and baking soda.  Hopefully one of them helps to rid my new, adorable bag of this awful smell.

    I would try hanging it outside to air out and also I've put dryer sheets in a bag that smelled and it helped a lot.
