I knew I'd be wearing these groovy new shoes with this skirt. They just go perfectly together.
|"I can't believe you're abandoning me."|
From there, the orange blazer was a natural match. The shoes, a ring and my earrings added extra orange accents.
|"And the Man left too..."|
I took the blazer off when I got glowy from tromping up the stairs.
|"No one loves me..."|
It was so dead at work - we are not bringing people back for a while still, so I only saw 4 people all day.
Done up for my walk to and from work.
|"I guess I'll just sleep all day..."|
And yes, Vizzini was very happy to see me when I got home.

This lovely skirt is a beautiful piece of vintage Marc Jacobs from the early 00s. It's 100% silk, made in the USA, and those pleats are permanent. I've never had to steam them straight and the skirt never wrinkles. It's magic!
It is also a size 2 and *guffaw* I'm not a size 2. I've never been able to get the zipper done up to the top, but I have not let that stop me! You'll notice in a lot of these outfits that the waist is covered up with a wide belt - or if it's not, then I've hidden the 3-inch open zip in the back under an open jacket.
I bought it in March 2018 (here) for $19.99 (such a score!) and first wore it that same month - I always like to wear my new items right away!
A couple of months later, I wore it with my Thousand Dollar Sweater and one of my annual white shirts.
This was a totally kooky look from August 2018.
here) - it's gone to a good home.
This look from January 2019 could be easily duplicated with any matchy shoes and blazer + sparkly vintage rhinestones.
Like in March 2019 with this wild top.
I like the contrast of the girly skirt with edgier items like my concert tee and a ginormous brooch.
I wore the same belt today as I did for my birthday back in October 2019.
This is probably my least favourite of all the looks I've done with this skirt. I'm glad I got rid of that blouse - this skirt deserves better.
This grey skirt is my version of a wardrobe basic, because it's not Just Another Grey Skirt. It's silk, it's made in the US, it's designer, it's vintage, it's permanently pleated! I'm not sure if I'll ever find a better grey skirt. And with today's outfit, I've worn it 9 times, so I'm just over $2 per wear, and it's worth every penny!
