a modern twist

I got this amazing jacquard belle skirt about 6 years ago at a vintage shop in Chapel Hill North Carolina, Time After Time Vintage Thrift. It instantly reminded me of Carrie Bradshaw my fashion icon. I've actually only worn it once to a semi formal ball. It's perfect for all these holiday parties coming up too.












Outfit
Skirt: Vintage
Top: Forever 21
Shoes: L.A.M.B. via Loehmanns see them worn differently HERE and HERE
Bag: BCBGeneration via Filenes Basement
Jacket: Dallin Chaise via Loehmanns
Watch: BCBG via Loehmanns
This skirt was less than $20 a fashion steele indeed but it looks so lush! It's also really heavy so it can be worn for those special occasions in the winter as well. The skirt to me is so over the top so I decided to give it a modern twist with a plain tee shirt and a leather jacket. See more of my favorite vintage skirts here and here.
