I had another top picked out to wear with this skirt today and then the very sweet and always stylish Megan over at The Fugalista Diaries reminded me what today was. I am wearing my red, are you?

I wore this coat most of the day so I thought I would keep it on for most of the photos as well. This skirt had so much static after I left the house and I couldn’t get it to stop. Between that and the wind it sometimes looked like I was wearing bellbottoms. I also don’t usually wear my like this. I actually felt weird all day. I didn’t make it big, or put it up high, or rat it or anything. Still not sure how I feel about it.

Ley’s talk about this skirt, I found it rummaging the sale/clearance room at Anthropology over the summer and I fell in love. I picked it up for $25 and couldn’t have been happier. After taking photos though I have come to realize:

1) from the front it makes me look wide 
2) I can’t find shoes that look good with it. 

I have tired flats, sandals and heels. I just can’t get it to work. That means this baby may sit in my closet for a while until I can find it some shoe companions. That also means I have an excuse to go shoe shopping (insert devilish grin here).


  1. I love your anthro skirt!! I wore red skinny pants today.
    Girllllll.....go check out your local thrift stores! A pair of pointy toed ankle boots or any kind of ankle boot would be adorable with this skirt. Or just a simple pair of heels! But you look gorgeous!


  2. I'll bet my gold wrap Nicole Miller sandals would look great with that skirt! You'd just have to wear the skirt lower on your hips gangsta style so it would be long enough. :)
