i feel almost compelled to dress up and get all fancy whenever i put this skirt on. i guess on the other side, you can't really dress it down and make it more casual, it would just look negligent. the richness and thickness of the fabric, the amazing colors, the pleats, the print, now this is a skirt to be celebrated. it's a vintage beauty i picked up in paris a few months ago and it's one of the most beautiful statement pieces i own. i wanted to channel the inner parisian in me and so i opted for a delicate lace blouse worn with a basic top underneath so it wouldn't be too revealing. went for black tights and boots to keep thing simple and chic. this is actually what i perceive, and observed, as the quintessence of the parisian woman: elegance, simplicity, effortless chic. i just wish i went to a fancier place than work in this ensemble. well, maybe next time.
