thrifted: nanette lepore skirt

you all know my love for thrift shopping. so after many years of thrifting and blogging i have teamed up with Beacon's Closet to bring you this amazing outfit! I have found such cool items at Beacon's Closet like this Christian Dior Skirt, this vintage white leather jacket, this vintage dress and this plaid dress i wear all the time! my favorite one to visit is the one in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. i always find incredible peices there and most of the time they are hot designers. i added a vintage black leather cropped jacket, also from Beacon's Closet, to complete the look.
 
 
 
 
Jacket: Vintage c/o Beacons Closet | Skirt: Nanette Lepore c/o Beacons Closet

GET THE LOOK

i love the floral print on the skirt which is one of the things that caught my eye. i also love the cut of the skirt. im on a floral kick and its all thanks to the Nokia and Leivankash Jewelry fashion challenge that I am a part of. Basically, bloggers get to use a Nokia Lumia 900 to create a mood board inspired by one of the collections of Leivankash Jewelry. If you follow me on instagram (@monroesteele) you know what I'm talking about! well i chose the Flora collection for the inspiration for my mood board because I love roses and flowers! this skirt fit right in with my inspiration! anywho if you are looking to score some great designer duds for the holidays be sure to check out Beacon's Closet! dont forget to check out my eBook for all the inside scoop on where to thrift in NYC!
