Thank you so much for the sweet comments on my last post.  I always find it fascinating to read what pieces of an outfit that you like best, because it varies so much and oftentimes it's not the pieces I would expect.  To answer a couple questions, the Finsk shoes came from ASOS, where they had clearly been hiding, because I didn't see them until they went on sale (thankfully).  I think they were around $140 when I got them.  Please don't hunt me down, because I would have to fight you for them and I'm a lot more scrappy than I appear.  That being said, I have seen a few other Finsk shoes on farfetch (all of which are pretty incredible-looking).

This skirt is so much fun to play with.  It's the perfect balance of volume, softness, and length that just lends itself to twirling.

You look stunning, to say the least. You can pull of a long skirt like no other. I love how you styled the skirt with a lace top and amazing shoes. You totally brought the skirt to life with the belt.

Totally one of my favorites.

Leah said...

E, I'm obsessed with lace these days. I love your lace top and that skirt makes you look so tall. You should be a runway model.

Jen said...

this is such a lovely outfit. usually i think longer skirts make me look shorter, but some how this skirt makes you look taller and slimmer! :) i'm in love with the pattern of your skirt as well. i especially love the bottom trim!

Christen said...

I really love that skirt and how you styled it. It's great inspiration for all of the vintage skirts my mom just gave me.

The Queen of Hearts said...

You are such a rare find -- absolute classic style here. There's something very Twiggy-esque about you for me.

Hanako66 said...

UnoCosa said...

absolutely one of my fave look of yours - you truly made this somewhat 50's look so modern! xx
