Like many other glamorous ghouls, my heart was set on getting the black & white spiderweb Little Jun. It was probably at the top of my list for the Halloween collection…so I was broken hearted when I missed the release. Luckily, all was not lost.

I’ve been following the lovely Mae on Instagram for a while, so when I saw that she was selling her own custom-made spiderweb skirts in her Madcap Mae Etsy store, I jumped at the chance to achieve my webby dreams and support another gal in the community.

This is skirt is absolutely adorable. It’s very well-made and has just the right amount of fullness to hold a great shape without a petticoat. This one was custom made for my waist measurement, but she also has some ready made skirts in her shop.

The skirt does have pockets (hurray)! At first, they seemed a bit small, but they’re definitely deeper than they are wide. I can’t comfortably fit my hand inside, but they do fit my big ol’ Galaxy S6…you just kind of have to slip it in. Plus, the pockets have a special secret…

Polka dots! The bottom hem of the skirt is also lined with polka dot fabric. I love little hidden surprises like this. Speaking of surprises, the spiderwebs on this skirt also GLOW IN THE DARK! How cool is that?

I wore this skirt for a work event and got so many compliments! I paired it with a lovely mustard vintage sweater that the sweet Fabiola sent me. The instant I received the sweater,  I knew that it would go beautifully with spiderwebs for the fall. I’ve been waiting to wear this outfit for a long time, and I’m so glad that Mae allowed me to make it happen even though I missed out on the Little Jun.

To keep the look simple, I wore a chunky beaded necklace and silver spider earrings. I felt super cute and a little bit mod all day. I know it will be a struggle to resist wearing this spiderweb skirt to death in the weeks leading up to Halloween, but I also fully intend to keep wearing it year round. It’s black and white, after all – basically a neutral!
