First, I think every woman should have at least one midi skirt in her closet. Second, I think every woman should have at least one fabulous clutch in her closet. I was recently invited to a preview of the Neiman Marcus fall fashion line. Follow my next post for my review of the fall trends. But, back to this post. After getting the invitation, the first thing that went through my mind was “what am I going to wear?”
I wanted a classic “day” look as it was a midday event. After a
more than few looks I decided on this beautiful full midi skirt. I have heard a lot of women say that styling full midi skirts can be difficult to style. I’m not saying it can’t be tricky at times, but it’s all about balance. Since the midi skirt is “full”, then the top should be form fitting. The top should be able to work with the skirt to accentuate an hourglass shape. I got this ASOS midi skirt from Buffalo Exchange in San Diego for $18. And, yes, I do silent screams in the fitting room when I find items on my thrift wish list. But in this case, this was pure perfection with a tag price under $20, so an audible YESSSSS was appropriate!
Since the star of the show here is this green full midi skirt, I went with a simple, form fitting, silk black tee from Banana Republic which was a gift to me from another fashionista. The details around the collar is so glamorous. Tucked into the midi skirt and belted, the tee does not outdo the skirt but makes it’s own statement.
If you have been following me for a while, you know that I am not shy about color. I could have easily gone with a pair of black pumps, but why pass up the chance to throw in a “pop of color.” I literally stalked the internet to find these Jessica Simpson’s yellow snake print heels. First, they were sold out everywhere, and when I did find it at certain locations, their prices weren’t “thrifty” enough for me. I finally found them at Century 21 Department online store on sale for $45 with free shipping! That was at least half the price I had seen at many other stores. These heels are everything to me! And, they were the perfect fit for my full midi skirt look here.
Completing this look is this printed black and white magazine clutch. I have a serious thing for clutches. I tend to gravitate towards clutches over any other type of purses 9 out of 10 times. This clutch is my new FAVORITE clutch that I own. It’s pure elegance and adds that final touch to any outfit. This outfit felt complete with the addition of the clutch.
