{do} hike up your pleated, maxi skirt.   what does one wear to meet Bravo Andy (Cohen) at Bethesda’s Front Row event?  a DIY dress, if you’re me.  and no, i’m not a master seamstress, i was just apparently feeling extra creative on this joyful day of getting to meet Andy, and decided to wear a skirt as a dress.  ever since the madness began back in february, when i bought anything and everything Missoni for Target i could get my hands on, this Missoni (for Target) maxi skirt has hung in my closet, pretty much just collecting dust.  we all have those untouched pieces hanging in our closets, right?  the reason this super cute skirt hasn’t had any action though is because i just don’t enjoy the way it hangs as a skirt, or maybe i’ve just become bored of it.  either way, i decided to hike it up, and i made myself a dress.  i enjoy it’s new length, it’s chevron pleats, and the simplistic-chic look it creates.
