Since the 70’s have become the decade of influence on fashion for fall 2015, I have been obsessed with owning a button down, suede a-line skirt. When I found this skirt on major sale, in one size too big, I snapped it up; despite the size issue.
Being one size too big did not seem like a big issue when I purchased the skirt. It sags a little bit around the waist, making me look a little pregnant in the photos above, but it looks smoother in real life. Suede is a little bit pricey to alter, and since I am in the process of losing ten pounds, I am going to wait before altering the skirt. I want to make sure I am at my goal weight before having the skirt made to fit me perfectly.
I love this skirt so much. The suede is soft, and the skirt is comfortable. I cannot wait to wear it with a cozy sweater in the winter, and warm boots. I love the vintage look of the skirt, and the fact that is it navy blue! Navy is one of my favorite colors to wear.
I am also in love with this secretary style blouse. The polka dots are so much fun, and the tie is a throwback to the 1970’s. It reminds me of a modern version of the silhouette on the vintage blouse my Mom gave me, last worn here.
This blouse will be fun to wear on casual days this fall with boots, flare jeans, and my Mansur Gavriel drawstring bucket bag.
I feel like this suede a-line skirt is my hold grail piece of the season. What is the one piece, your “Holy Grail”, that you want this fall?
