The floral sequin skirt

Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Necklace: Stella and Dot | Bag: Gucci | Top: Express (option, cheaper optioncheapest option) | Skirt: JOA | Shoes: Kate Spade (option, optionbudget option)

This is the sequin skirt I was raving about in yesterday's Anniversary Sale recap. Seriously, isn't it gorgeous? I could have easily dressed this up to be more evening ready, but I decided to tone it down a bit with the stripe tee so I could wear this to work. (Yes, I can pretty much get away with anything at work.)

The faux leather waistband makes it even that more special - as if a sequin skirt needed another way to be special! And this is one of those pieces that definitely needed to be seen in person because I didn't like it at all on the model. I did size up in it just because form fitting pieces tend to fit better on my hips when I size up. And I think the length is still pretty good on my 5'-2" frame.

No seriously, you need this.

  2. Your floral sequined sort of brocade pencil skirt is gorgeous. Simply WOW!! And those shoes - divine! Love how you totally dressed up a striped tee. Also, I've told you before but you do not look 5.2" at all, definitely at least 5.5". =)

    Link up with me sometimes this week. The link up is open every day. If you do, please include a link back to my blog. Thanks Carylee.

    1. Thanks! This striped tee goes with everything! Love that it's basic but adds enough interest up top! But doesn't compete with the skirt at all!

  16. Love how you've taken a glamorous skirt and dressed it down for day wear. The skirt is stunning, there's nothing quite like a bit of bling!

  17. I like how you have mixed the dressy skirt with a casual stripe tee, and those shoes are fab. I also love your red Gucci bag to add a little color. Love this look on you.

  23. I read this post yesterday and yet it looks as though I did not reply to it?! SO SORRY!! Anyway, the pencil skirt -- gorgeous!! You really made excellent choices from the sale- very carefully selected and versatile pieces. Also, you are so good at finding dupes! The copycat for the striped tee is great! I almost want one just for a backup!!

    1. I seriously thought that a) you were going through something rough yesterday or b) you just hated the outfit so much, you couldn't find anything even disposable to say! Haha I'm just spoiled by your presence!

      I always feel like I've hit the jackpot when I see a good dupe! And this skirt- it has my heart. I just love it!!

  24. Don't you just love working at a place where they don't think women in suits are more productive, or some craziness like that? I don't expect them to allow us to wear sweat pants, but dress codes are just short of wearing a uniform :)

    This is one amazing skirt girl
