Like Mr. T, Only Plaid

Ugh, the first day back after a long weekend full of stress. Gotta fake it, and what better way than a giant plaid skirt?
This is, of course, my fabulous vintage 80s taffeta plaid skirt (complete with built-in crinoline!), that I bought back here for $44.00. $44.00 is pretty high for consignment (in my opinion), but it's a really cool skirt. I rustled about the office today.
The mustard cardigan was last worn here in May with plum and rust - it's such a versatile colour.
I see a lurker in the background.
I have a purple cami on under it.

The stuff:
The shoes are my perfect black pumps. I last wore them here for Valentine's Day, with a red dress.

I've had this bigass chain necklace for a few years - I picked it up at Club Monaco in August 2010 on super-duper markdown. It was $89 regular price, and I got it for $9. Crazy.
I felt like Mr. T in my big chains. They rattled, the skirt rustled - I was a Presence today at work. Make way!

  1. I pity the fool who didn't love your outfit! Love that skirt so much. A perfect Monday confection.

  2. i am not sure which i love more your new plaid dress you wore on the 10th or this skirt. they are both so fabulous! i am glad you got both of them. they are both such beautiful, bold pieces for summer! and since i personally think the '80s rocked the first time around, a little crinoline is a real bonus! I hope you had a great day filled with twirls and rustling.

  3. Eee! Big skirt, big chain! Big fun!

    I've been paying more attention to your consignment prices. I've been trying to get a better feel for pricing, since my boss has been leaving inventory to me a lot more lately. I live in a very (cheap) area, so it's funny to hear half the people go "omg what a steal" or "what kind of discount can you give me" for the same item.

  4. Hope your work day wasn't too bad! I like your bright and cheerful outfit too, that skirt is stunning and the yellow and purple are perfect with it!

  5. That skirt is fabulous. And I'm in love with the colors. With your darker red hair you look fabulous.

  6. Gorgeous plaid! I love it! Fits you perfectly too! I see the lurker back there!

  7. omg, that skirt is the best! I too would lurk around corners to get a better glimpse : >

  8. you look fab even if you are faking it! love that skirt! also wanted to let you know i'm holding a new fashion linky every tuesday over at my place starting next week! the shiny t tuesday posts are becoming a link up with prompts...the prompt for next week is 'WHEN PATTERNS SPEAKS' Would be fab to see you there xxx jane xxxx

  9. A FABULOUS giant plaid skirt!! I love the outfit!!! The colors--the big-ass chain necklace!!! All of it just works!!

  10. Love that color combo -- and with your hair, it's even more STUNNING!
