I find fashion inspiration everywhere: TV, movies, music, magazines, and even books written by description heavy writers. This time it was via random women as I was out and about. I could use the term “street style” but this was more so a single item than a full outfit.
I noticed a great purple pencil skirt one morning as I got off the train. A few days later there was a purple straight skirt and then another one with a slightly short hemline but far from a mini. This got stuck in my head and I’ve decided I need a new purple skirt. I had a wine/plum skirt years ago but nothing more of the grape soda hue that I’ve seen lately.
I love the combo below. A good pair of boots, silver hoop earrings, and a great grey cardigan sweater have been staples in my closet for years. If it magically appeared in my closet, I would be ESTATIC!
Vero Moda black velvet top, $32 / Reiss layering cami / EMISPHERE knee high skirt, $58 / Print tight / Exull lace up platform booties / Proenza Schouler leather crossbody handbag, $1,370 / Hinged bangle / Alexis bittar ring / Diesel button jewelry, $61 / Lynn Ban white diamond hoop earrings, $6,745 / KENNETH JAY LANE bracelet jewelry
Add a bit of a winged liner and a retro-inspired hairstyle and the end result in a funky spin on a polished combo. I don’t wear pumps often enough but when I do I usually go for a more rounded toe.
