Skirting the Issue

Monday, May 10, 2010

Giant Tiger skirt worn as a top (I've had this for more than a decade!),
Dynamite blazer (also seen here), Seduction leather jacket (also seen here),
Le Chateau pashmina, Bongo skinny jeans (also seen here), Mossimo flats,
Suzy necklace (also seen here) bangles & ring, Bay white croc bangle

I have developed somewhat of an obsession with flowy tops lately.  I can't get enough and always want to rock one, whether with a pencil skirt or skinny jeans, it's the perfect mix between business and casual but pulled together and chic (and of course, oh-so-stylish).  While rushing to get dressed this morning, I saw this old skirt in my drawer.  Something I've owned for more than 10  years and something I haven't worn in probably 5 years.  I decided to throw it on and under the blazer it worked perfectly.  I'm so pumped to 'add' another flowy top to my closet.

WHAT? That's a skirt? It looks amazing as a top. I recently thought of wearing my long skirt as a dress.. but I actually didn't think of wearing a shorter one as a top. =P
Awesome idea.

OH and looking at your previous post, I think it's so HOT that you know how to ride a bike.


<3 Serena.

Really pretty top - you're right, they're so versatile and easy to wear.

Also, I loved your fun facts post. I didn't realize your were engaged or sooo tall. Wow, 5'11?!?

I love flowy tops and skinnies paired together! Love those red peep toes too!

I have a ton of flowy tops (I wear them mainly to disguise my tummy) but I get really tired of pairing them with skinny (or straight leg) jeans.

Lately I've been tucking in a flowy/babydoll top into a skirt, pulling the ends out just a little so it billows nicely at the waist and then cinching it with a belt. :)

Keeps the flowly feeling without looking frumpy!

That top (I mean skirt :) looks awesome with the white blazer! I thought I was the only one who would occasionally wear a skirt as a top, but it's definitely a good way to get more mileage out of your wardrobe. I'm not ashamed anymore :)

Your skirt looks amazing as a top! It's a simple way to re-purpose an old, well loved, but neglected item.

And I love the leather jacket, it is awesome.

Chic on the Cheap
