I love A-line skirts. They permit lots of eating and drinking, which tends to happen on New Years Eve!!! Pairing different fits with an A-line skirt can tricky because you don’t want to get lost in the shape. A-line skirts are more loose, having a bell shape like my blue BCBG skirt above. I KNOW!!!! You are so over my favorite things being from BCBG. Even though I don’t work at BCBG, anymore I am still loyal to the brand because the cut really fits my build and body type. So when you find something that works for you, stick with it!! Also, this particular blue skirt I guess we could say is “vintage” BCBG Runway. I purchased it from a Final Cut, which is the outlet store when items are SUPER marked down. (I still paid $60 for it, so you can imagine how much it was originally. BCBG RUNWAY DON’T PLAY!) Because this skirt is made from a heavy silk satin it has lasted me through the years and I will probably never get rid of it. The color, the pockets, it has memories. And that’s a great point going into 2016!!!
BACK TO THE SKIRT!!! I have this particular skirt paired with a backless bodysuit from American Apparel. Because of the plunging neckline I layered this moto style leather jacket that I bought off the clearance rack at BCBG at the end of last winter. PLEASE DON’T SHOOT ME. It’s the last time I’ll mention them, this year. To play off the gold detail in my jacket I paired gold kitten heels. Mary Norton kitten heels from back in the day. She is all things fabulous and a previous client of mine from King St. Additionally, to contrast the feminine vibe of the skirt I grabbed a studded clutch.
And let me tell you, if you know me, you will know for like 2 months I wore this damn jacket with EVERYTHING. I have a bad habit of forgetting anything else in my closet exists when I get new stuff. And after I wore it as much as possible when my friend Beth would call me to style her for performances I would be like, "Ohhh I have the perfect jacket." Enough Lyv!!
If you're not looking to go as dressy with maybe a longer hem length take a look at the pink skirt I used in my camo blog. Do you see how I'm tying these last few blogs together?! So you have a better idea how I get the most use and ideas for different styles and trends that are relevant each season. Since the camo shirt was a touch baggy I cinched the waist with a wide belt so it wasn't a baggy top on a baggy skirt. We still need that shape with the sass ladies! Don't get lost in your own clothes. Also, I chose those silver Guess (TJ-Maxx) heels to accentuate the belt and more importantly elongate the leg. If I had styled a booty shape shoe it would've cut my legs off with the longer hem length. Because the shoe has that open slit down the front it keeps the eye moving and werking. So WERK!
The last look of 2015, is actually a look I started the year off with about statement t-shirts! I LOVE this pink bell skirt!
Due to how dramatic and over the top it is I like to wear it with casual tops and funky pumps. This is an oversized t-shirt tied up at my waist. If a shirt is a little big just tie a little knot in it and bring it up to speed.
Cheers friends!! This is my last post for 2015 and I cannot tell you how MUCH I appreciate you taking the time to read my crazy words. It touches me DEARLY when I talk to people and they mention they've seen a post, old or new. I love it all!! When I began building this website a year ago and writing my goal was simply to shed insight to how I mix fashion, style and current trends into my life. And hopefully you find resourcefulness through my ways and into yours. Make it your own!! Be sassy in your skirts for New Years Eve and celebrate with style! Push your shoulders back, grab a glass of champagne and silently demand the attention of a room when you walk in. You're capable of it, and you deserve it, because being you rocks!!
Until next year.
