Hey guys and Happy New Year! I know I've been a away from my blog for while but its a new year and I'm ready to get back to it. I'm so excited for all the things I have coming up this year and I'm even more excited to share it all with you.
So I have this thing where I buy these really fancy dresses and literally only wear them once... but its not intentional it just so happens to play out that way. Anyways the skirt, or actually the dress that I'm wearing as skirt is no different. I bought this beautiful hand-beaded dress from Virgo's Lounge and wore it on my birthday the year before last and it has been sitting in my closet ever since.
So I decided to fold it in to make it into a skirt and pair it with a simple white button down shirt from J. Crew and a Zara leather jacket to give it some edge. I'm such advocate for 'style ingenuity' and using what you have in your closet or around the house resourcefully and this outfit is an example of that.
The accessories for this outfit I kept pretty simple–some mirror sunglasses from Forever 21, classic black pumps and silver rings. I normally don't do low end shades but I bought these on a whim and the color of the shades matched my dress slash skirt so I just threw them in the mix. My heel are from Zara, cause every girl needs a pair of classic black pumps. And Wahla! There you have it a little bit of sparkle meets the city.
As always thank you for stopping by. Have a great week.
