Alright, I know this outfit is awfully Alex Chung-ish, but this skirt just oozes girliness. Go big or go home, I guess. And with that, part 1 of the Love Charles Vintage swap is now complete. Next stop for this package is Mousevox Vintage - I can't wait to see how she styles these pieces!

  1. I love this. From the top, it's simple and even a little ho hum. And then you hit the bottom. The hi/low hem, the amazing tights, the shoes...all slight variations on a classic feminine style that's just ridiculously current. Serious love.

  3. Those shoes are so chic! And such a lovely color, pattern, and shape they have. The tassels are adorable. I love how you're wearing such pretty white lace tights-- it's a nice take from all the black lace we see. :)

  9. Thanks so much for the comments on my blog and Chictopia! I really appreciate it. Personally, I don't think an outfit could ever be TOO Alexa Chung. Love the pretty, pretty tights and that pretty skirt! The little kitten heels are fierce as well!
