Off The Wall

Skirt? Emanuel Ungaro, thrifted
Tee? Joe Fresh
Brown suede booties? Jeffrey Campbell, StyleSense
Brown suede quilted purse? Holt's, thrifted
Necklace? h&m
Bangle? thrifted
Sunglasses? Iceberg, Winners

It was too perfect when I discovered a random, abandoned (though maybe not...)building painted half blue... I knew it would work some colour wheel magic against my 'new' Ungaro skirt. This skirt fits perfect. I think it was made for me, it just had a few years detour in somebody else's closet first.
And yes, I know I've been wearing everything with plain tee's. Lots of things match with this skirt but nothing looks as fresh and popping as a plain tee against something something dressy. I will get over this soon. Actually, it got colder (and I spilled on my shirt) and so later I switched the top for a blue oxford type shirt and I liked that too. But my photographer was gone to visit his grandma and figuring out the timer on the camera seemed like too much work while Dateline was on...
I was bad and bought new booties. I've discovered that brown heels are possibly the best thing ever and take me out of the black heels humdrum. I thought ahead and got a pair that was comfortable (for heels) and will take me into the winter months. Way to plan...

I love the wall with your skirt! The colors are RAD! (yup, I said rad). I've totally been on a plain t-shirt kick lately too...they're flattering but always let the other piece of the ensemble shine. I love the clasp details on the skirt, too!
