Circle Skirts for the Win

Jacket? Tahari (here or pricier but amazing leather version here) Skirt? Handmade 
Boots? Aldo Clutch? Thrifted

When I did a round up of my favourite outfits of the last year, someone questioned the absence of the look with this circle skirt that Julie and I made for the WWYCT contest. I guess it wasn't included because I don't consider anything a legitimate outfit unless I wear it out in public. And since we just shot those pictures in an abandoned art room, the skirt wasn't up for consideration. I have some pretty strict rules for myself. It's important to keep up standards when awarding oneself  with 'Best Dressed' awards...
But now that I have officially worn it out, it's definitely a favourite. Especially when I put another full skirt underneath. Because a full circle skirt can only get better with more volume. Seriously, get a circle skirt, they are a joy to wear. This one is a beaut. Or nag me and Julie to start a production line...

Brilliant! You look so, so pretty in this outfit. A little edgy, a little soft, so you.

I was half expecting to see bangs, given your recent twitter tweets.
