I love anything one-of-a-kind and a little out of the ordinary, and these words define the shops that I also like to spend my days off browsing in. So, when I stumbled across this vintage skirt from Italy, I immediately checked the size (yes, it fit!) and I knew I just had to have it!
I purchased it at the end of last summer, but I knew at the time that it is a skirt for all seasons. I dress it up in the fall/winter with a pair of stiletto boots and black turtleneck, and in the spring/summer with my Givenchy sling backs which I picked up for a song at another one of my favourite consignment shops. Consignment shops are the ideal shopping location for university students like myself who want to look stylish on a dime! Beauty on a budget, in other words!
It also reminds me so much of the outfits Sarah Jessica Parker was fortunate enough to wear as "Carrie Bradshaw" on Sex and the City. And although I consider myself a jeans and t-shirt kind of a girl it's always nice to dress up once in awhile, spray on the Chanel No. 5 and go out dancing with the girls!
