52




Topshop slouchy t-shirt & blazer (similar), Diane von Furstenburg 'zhin' skirt, Chloe boots (not pictured)

Geometric. A couple weeks back I got an email from Shopbop informing me of their spend and save weekend. Never one to resist a sale of any kind if I can, I quickly clicked through and found that this Diane von Furstenburg skirt which was in my wishlist, but sold out, was back in stock. In my size. Oh, and on sale. Five minutes of pondering over which other item to buy from my wishlist, add to cart. Make payment. So much for being good!

But what is good, is this skirt. I love how the colour gradiates from black to white, with floral geometric shapes around the center. There's nothing like a printed skirt to make an otherwise ordinary outfit, not so ordinary. And above all, it's a great transition piece, one I can't wait to wear in the summer with loud printed silk blouses.

  1. Wahoo! Love love love it! I want the DVF for Current/Elliott floral jeans...haha.
    I'm the same way I just can't resist a sale! And now that I don't have a full time job I'm going to have to try really hard... (but I have an AWESOME coupon that starts on Wednesday for a store with amazing stuff, 25% off and then 10% more with my card...OY!) But I'm going to do freelance so I'll still have income. I'll tell you more in an email :)
