I got this in Alabama and it cost a whopping 99 cents for 2 pieces. The plus was it had this lovely embroidery. I thought the gold and blue embroidery was a bit too stark for my color taste. I first muted it down by using blue iDYE for polyester.
This caused the gold to become a blue-green without touching the cotton background. Yeah! Then I cut the top and the skirt and attached together to make a tunic top with some elastic. And it has long sleeves which is a bonus here with the now winter weather that has arrived here in D.C. Here's a recap.
my blog here. I paired it with skinny jeans and boots and got a ton of compliments at work. I was surprised.
