Happy Tuesday, everyone! Last week, we were in NY for four days and travelled for two. It was a whirlwind trip and we didn’t spend a lot of time because we’re headed to Indianapolis in a few weeks for Senior Bible Quizzing Nationals. We’ll be back in NY later this year for a longer stretch. For this reason, I barely got any pics while I was there. We were so busy! I took a lot of videos and posted to my Instastories though.Anywho, I wanted to share these two skirts with you. They are from Handmade by Magaly and they were handmade for ME after I chose the print I wanted. Seriously, go HERE to look at the available prints. Wait until you see them! I had such a hard time choosing. I even had to ask two friends at church to help me because I loved them all.This lady is so sweet. I don’t know how people are so talented, but I’m blown away by how well the skirts were made. She sent me not one, but two skirts for me to try. I gave her my measurements via messaging and she sent these beauties. Both skirts are fully lined with a more stiff (but not uncomfortable) lining. It’s not that clingy lining that sticks to you in hot weather, and it is the full length of the skirt. I love that!If you mention me, @thegirlfromnyc, she will give you $10 off your order. Please give her a follow, a look at the fabric, and use #girlfromnycstylepics so I can see which one you chose. As I usually try to do, I wanted to show you different ways to wear the skirts, so I wore the skirts with some of the same clothes, but different shoes and accessories. I really like the skirts a lot, I received a lot of compliments on them, and they are gorgeous. What’s great is that she only has a limited amount that she will make of the same print, so you will be getting a mostly unique item 🙂You would send her your waist size and desired length and choose the fabric pattern you want. You can have pockets and bows for no extra charge. I also found out that you can pay half the price of the skirt through PayPal’s Friends and Family option when you place your order and then pay the remainder before she ships it to you. The price is actually really not bad. They’re about $45, but then you get $10 off when you mention my Instagram name – @thegirlfromnyc. That includes the fabric, the amazing finished product, and shipping within the US and Puerto Rico. The turn around time is about 4 weeks.Shop the look below where you can find similar pieces at great prices to recreate these looks. Please pay close attention to the black shoes. I have two pairs of this. One in black and one in leopard calf skin. The shoes are amazingly comfortable! I love the first bag because it’s extremely dressy and doesn’t have the price tag of the white bag I’m holding. The same goes for the black bag. I linked the exact bag, but it’s slightly used so it’s about a third of the cost of mine. The pink watch is a Michele watch and the ‘thing’ about Michele watches is that you can easily change out the bands. Many times you can just buy the face and buy the bands later. I found some similar to mine 🙂 Find the other deals below:
Before I go, I wanted to tell you about our upcoming week. We’ll be in Indianapolis for the Senior Bible Quizzing National Tournament and I would love to receive some recommendations about where we should eat or visit (if we have time, of course). I will upload the link on Instagram so you can follow the live scores. They live stream when they hit the championship games. We will be in full quiz mode from Friday until Tuesday night’s banquet. We are back home on Wednesday, so if you have any tips, or if you will be there, comment below or send me a message!
