Denim and Tweed with Boots, or Mexx Appeal

Cropped jean jacket (Ann Taylor Loft, NYC), sheer black shirt with embroidery and sequins (Mexx, consignment), plain black cami (Inwear, Dots), herringbone grey/black tweed skirt with kick pleat (Mexx, gift from Celia), black faux patent boots (Expressions, The Bay), double hoop earrings (The Bay).

We were at Steve & Celia's party last weekend and Celia dragged me into her closet to look at her clothes (not like it was hard, as I love looking in people's closets to see what kind of gems they have hidden there), and she pulled out this skirt and gave it to me! I was agog! What a sweet thing to do. I tried it on under the kimono dress and it was like it was made for me. It was super comfortable all day at work today, too - I felt like a million bucks.

Part of that is also the nice detail on the sheer shirt (it has weird little ruffly sleeves - I'll wear it in the summer with some jeans and show my arms). This was a nice find from a consignment shop that I usually don't shop in because their prices are too high, but this was on the sale rack for $20.

The other part of it is these boots. Of course, last year was all about the black patent and I HAD to have black patent boots. Well, I'm not paying a ton for real patent leather, so I found these, which are the Bay's house brand for shoes. They were on sale, naturally. Can't remember how much but it was under $50. A close up:
Yup, that's a black boot.
