I almost bought that Philip Lim for Target dress. The one that looks like a long sweatshirt over a skirt? (I featured it in yesterday's collage.) But Mike was lukewarm about the whole thing, and admittedly the fit was strange. So I skipped it, only to re-create it with pieces I had at home.
And I think I like this better.
skirt: Ann Taylor (old)…try Sabine's Pleated Maxi Skirt at Piperlime
shoes: Guess ankle-strap pumps (old)…similar at Piperlime
wig: Henry Margu
But here's the deal: A flowy skirt (of almost any length) will work.
Or…if you love to show a little leg (and just need a few more inches of hem)…a cheap, stretchy little skirt might help you get more mileage out of your mini dress/tunic/long sweater.
shoes: Aerosoles Tasseled Loafers
Ok – now full disclosure: I hate the above picture. I love the outfit (except for maybe the too-short bag?), but that picture…man. It's tough to look at. I really look like a cancer patient, you know? It was taken the day after Chemo #2 when we went in for my routine Neulasta shot. My legs are swollen from the steroids and the headscarf is just…no. I've since figured out I don't like square silk headscarves – they're too thin, giving me that billiard-ball-cancer-patient look. Sigh. More on the head-scarf thing later.
So let's end with a prettier picture, shall we?
(Oddly enough, these pics were all taken on the same day…it's amazing what a little skirt drama and hair can do for a girl.)
ps. Gap's Herringbone puffer vest is finally available online!
