oceans of grey

Skirt: Forever 21. Waistcoat: Modcloth.com. Fedora: Thrifted. Jewellery: T&V, street vendors: Tiny bag: FCUK. Chuck Taylors: DIY studded
I nearly passed out when I saw this skirt at Forever 21. The huge floor sweeping tiers and grey colour, reminded me of a skirt that I could see hanging at a designer shop. The waist band can be pulled up or down or folded over. I kept it unfolded to lay flat.
I’ll always wear it with flats to keep it casual, only seeing the footwear peaking out with each step or when sitting cross legged.
You already know the faux leather waist coat from modcloth.com. I can’t wait to wear this sweeping skirt in the Fall with a skinny black turtle neck, cropped leather jacket and ankle boots.
*** ps. The current September issue of Lucky magazine has a full page Rachel Rachel Roy ad with me dead center in the shot! Sorry, but I’ve never been in a publication like that before so I had to share! ***

    Hey guys – I got the skirt about a month ago : (

    I just never got round to wearing it until now! Its actually from the Twelve by Twelve collection. i don’t see it on the website anymore though. Their might be a Forever 21 though that still has them?

    Farrah – I didn’t think of that!! I’m going to give that a try.

    Thischicksgotstyle – I wonder if its the faux blackleather one I saw at H&M a few weeks ago. I almost bought it but ended up finding one at Forever 21 (black too) that I really like. Need to do a post in it : )

    Anon – the lipstick is Ruby Woo by MAC.

    That skirt is amazing.

    Random question… I’m fascinated by your hair. Are you natural or do you relax?
