More Basic Black

Gap shirt, Halston Heritage skirt from Julian Gold,
necklace from Target, Montego Bay wedges from Payless

Oh boy, do I love this skirt! It's so flowy and soft and it makes me feel like a million bucks. It's definitely one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. At the same time, it's one of the LAST purchases I'll make for awhile. I can't ignore the fact that I'm broke and all. But, I couldn't deny that I needed this skirt. Let me explain...

Since I started my new job at Alfred Angelo, I've realized that I lack professional clothing. When I worked at Cream Vintage, I could wear whatever I wanted, which was awesome but not realistic. My wardrobe is filled with fun, casual clothing that wouldn't be appropriate to sell wedding dresses in. I needed basics that can be remixed with the clothes already in my closet and this skirt definitely fits the bill.

What do you think about my new favorite skirt?


  1. LOVE the skirt! And you paired it so nicely with a white tee and pop of turquoise. Perfection! 

  2. Love the new skirt. You'll get a ton of wear out of it. I have one that is similar. Perhaps I should wear mine tomorrow.

  3. First off, I just want to say you could be Nina Garcia's sister!

    Also, I'm finding myself in an opposite wardrobe situation - where because I work in libraries, it's a very casual but work environment and now I find myself with very little fun clothes! I need to add more color in my wardrobe!

  4. Thanks Eli!! I've never been compared to her, but that's a HUGE compliment.
