Midi Skirt Reborn


Shirt: Anthropologie // skirt and leather bracelet: flea market in Israel // shoes: Schutz //purse: Forever 21 // necklace: Chan Luu // gold bracelet: Urban Outfitters

Some articles of clothing, because they’re so unique, wait for years in your closet until you find the right companions to make them shine. I never really knew what to do with this awesomely vibrant skirt I got years ago at a bazaar in Israel. I knew a simple white tee was an obvious and safe choice, but which shoes? Gladiator sandals might make the whole thing too costume-y. Enter these gold-studded babies I got recently by Schutz – they add just the right amount glamour and eccentricity to remix the whole vibe.

I wore this outfit to happy hour with Haley and a gaggle of girlfriends which, being a sedentary activity, was the perfect time to wear these walk-unfriendly shoes! Someone recently told me about an episode of Scrubs in which Carla makes Turk wear her high heels around the house in order to break them in for her. I hope whoever I marry will do the same for me! I guess I’ll have to settle for shoe-stretchers (is that a thing?) for now.

P.S. This outfit reminds me of something Carrie Bradshaw would wear in the Abu Dhabi scenes in Sex and the City 2!

    […] Hi all!  I found this fun patterned dress at my local freestyle store—where you can buy, sell and trade clothing. I’m trying to downsize my closet a bit, so I sold 7 items and traded for this dress and a hat, plus $20 bucks cash back! Not too shabby if you ask me. I decided to add a yellow cardigan and belt to finish off the outfit. I met up with a few friends for drinks after work, which turned into us wondering over to the rose garden for some photos as the sun went down. To see more of Vanessa’s outfit, click here. […]
