Today, the leaf skirt!
I didn't feel like going colour-a-rama with this outfit, so I went with browns and a flashy necklace instead.
- Sweater - Club Monaco, thrifted; last seen here in January on a thrifting trip
- Skirt - Darling; purchased here in Rome a couple of weeks ago
- Shoes - Bruno Magli, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here (2nd outfit) in January with a lame (lah-MAY!) skirt
I admire all the cropped tops and shapeless vests and unstructured coats and giant trousers that I see in the fashion mags aesthetically, but I just can't do them - they look horrendous on my body. I need fit and flattering shapes. I am not a coat hanger!
First wear of this little flirty skirt. I wasn't especially taken with it when I bought it, but I quite liked its swooshiness (about a Swoosh Factor 8) during the day. I'm also resigned to having to wear tights every day now - too darned windy and cold for bare legs!
Many 80s shoes are horribly uncomfortable. Not so, these vintage Bruno Magli shoes. What would you call these? They aren't kitten heels (not a bitty little stiletto) and they're not flats (too much heel)?
I love that bigass necklace! Birds! They go with my single leaf earring.
- Necklace - gift from Mom
- Cuff - SkinZnHydez
- Bracelet - vintage 80s, faux Gucci, gift from Mom & Dad
- Spinner rings - Twang & Pearl and consignment
- Earrings - Plum
So, make like a leaf?

Or blow. Your call.
Very nice. Great skirt. I'd wear this outfit. Then again, I'd wear everything you show us.ReplyDelete
the personification of a beautiful autumn!ReplyDelete
Loving the birds! JJReplyDelete
The shoes: "walk up flats"? The necklace: Good job, Mom! I love the look of a fitted top with a full skirt. Again, you're rockin' it girl!ReplyDelete
Such a pretty fall outfit! I always love it when you wear that necklace too :)ReplyDelete
Loving the colours and print of that skirt, and the shoes look so comfortable with that low block-y heel.ReplyDelete
Vizzini looks as though he is on High Alert! xxx
Love that necklace!! It is so cool!ReplyDelete
I can't do the shapeless stuff much either. I need a little tuck or stretch or something!! I'm just too petite for it.
