Wardrobe Challenge - 1 Skirt, 4 Ways - Day #4

Day #4? Are you freakin' kidding me?

Yes! Today's outfit is all about texture:

I'm doing blue with brown again, but like I said, texture is the key to this outfit.

Velvet blazer (new-to-me, $19.99), the applique thingy on the top with the beads, the big belt with the cutouts, the herringbone of the skirt, the patterned tights, the stitching on the shoes, the woven metal of the earrings, and the details on the bracelet (a new purchase).

A close-up of the tights. They are actually gold with a black pattern:

Funky shoes, man!

The stuff:
I adore that bracelet. It's another piece by Lucky Brand - it was on an extra 40% off the sale price, so I got it for $11.00, regular $40. I really like that it has little peace signs between the links. The blue mottled stone goes with the shirt, and the dark brown link is actually wood. Even the "stone" in the flower is cool. But what really sells me on a piece like this is the hidden details:
Isn't that amazing? That's the back - the designs are all raised. I love that there's a fishy type pattern.

One more day of the skirt! I am looking forward to doing it for Casual Friday!

Blazer (Gap, consignment), sleeveless shirt (Nygard), camisole (Esprit), skirt (Suzy Shier), belt (Plum), hose (Hue), shoes (Unlisted), earrings (don't remember), bracelet (Lucky brand).

  2. I love those shoes!!!!! Hey, your hair has been so cute too. Been meaning to mention that. I think I'm finally back to the land of the living and trying to catch up on everything. I love all the ways you've been wearing that skirt too. It's fun to see all the different outfits everyone has come up with.

    Alison, aren't they cool? Yeah, my hair is getting long - I'm getting it cut on Sat, but I think I'm still growing it out. Welcome back!

  9. I love everything about this outfit. You harmoniously put items together that most wouldn't immediately think to pair, and it came together fabulously.
