Look of the Week: Concrete Jungle

The statement piece in this week's look is a vintage Escada wool skirt I thrifted. The design makes up for its modest hemline with a thigh-high slit. To compliment the vintage feel, I added some classic pieces like patent heels and oversized sunglasses. While I usually prefer to stick to one statement piece, I don't think the striped shirt is too much, since the skirt is a solid colour. For a simpler look, you could swap out the striped top for a black turtleneck or boatneck shirt. Either would give a bit of a Hepburn-esque quality to the outfit.

I can't say I would recommend wearing this to the office unless you have a very liberal dress code, but I just love the idea of wearing it while out downtown, among all the concrete  and business suits. Dare to stand out! If you're looking for something to wear for Valentine's still, take a look through the skirt racks at your local thrift store- you'll find all kinds of unique and seductive skirts like this one (not to mention it'll be a bargain!).

  3. Wow! This skirt is something else - another amazing thrift find! From the side it looks so demure, but then you see the front slit and the look changes completely. The second last shot of you is absolutely stunning - those cheekbones! You look like you walked right out of an episode of Mad Men :)
