This is a familiar story for a girl like me. I loved this black bardot jacquard crop top by LPA on Revovle.com. Which was paired with the matching cropped pant. But of course. The pants were sold out in my size. Now, I had to go on an online journey to find something to pair with it. Going with a simple black could be a big fail, because of the texture and sheen of top. It could potentially make the top appear faded or washed out. So, I sought out the other colors in the top. Gold and a berry color. I ended up purchasing the gold pleated skirt from SHEIN.com. Not only did the skirt add flair. It made the colors on top really pop.
Special thanks to my photographer and friend Kelly Pyle @pbkpix. Also my beautiful and often used back drop Dowtown Charleston.
Hello beautiful people. This new year I’ve been going through a small transitional phase. I am trying to be a bit more classy, while maintaining my sexy style. The cool part comes naturally. I just feel like it’s time to step it up a notch. I absolutely adore the knee or mid-calf length flounce skirt. I’ve seen them on women I think are very classy. Carolina Herrera and Michelle Obama seem to come to mind at the moment. I had been on the hunt for one for a couple of months. Then, one day I was thrifting at the Goodwill in North Charleston, when I spotted that sweet baby. It was only $3.99, which filled my heart with a ridiculous amount of joy. It makes me smile just thinking about it now.
The skirts remind me of a 1950’s houseswife with her apron and pan of blueberry muffins coming fresh out of the oven. Which was the inspiration behind the kitchen theme. I just replaced the muffins and apron, with wine and a Keurig. I digress.
love this back
I purchased the top half of my look on Missguided.com. It is a Cut Out Panel Bardot Bodysuit in White at $22.00. I think it is the part of the sexy that I want to maintain. It is good quality too. I must say that it was significantly shorter than I thought it would be. It did not reach far enough down for me to button it.
Maybe one day I’ll get to wear it out to a nice restaurant or just twirling down King Street. That would be fun. 😉
