When I looked in my closet this morning I was for the first time feeling a little doubtful about being locked into these 30 pieces. But when the going gets tough, the tough get creative. I never would have mixed this top with this skirt, but necessity is a great thing. Turns out, I love this mix!
I bought this skirt last fall at Forever 21 after being inspired by the great brocade looks from the Fall 2010 Balmain show (see pic at bottom of post) – see some more pictures of it here. I love that it’s a little bit rock and roll and a little Louis XIV. Brocade has nice memories for me, since my first “sexy grown-up” dress was a blue and tan brocade mini sheath (I wish I had a picture of it!). I felt like a million dollars in that dress.
The belt is from Nordstrom Rack, ’09
