A mostly vintage look commemorating the transition from winter to spring (hopefully). Believe it or not, this skirt was originally an evening dress given to me by my grandmother in the hopes I might get some use out of it. Unfortunately the top (which was a beautiful charcoal gray wool) was moth-eaten beyond repair, but the bottom was still in fine condition. I took it to my favorite tailor and he whipped it into a fabulous skirt! Honestly it’s much more versatile this way. I often wear it to work and it’s fun to fancy it up with this Treasury Vintage evening bag and a vintage stole I recently scored at the thrift store.

OMG Such a great way to breathe new life and love into a piece passed down to you. Love the print and extra vintage vibe from the fur stole.
Such a cute look!

The print of that skirt is lovely!! It’s a shame the top part of it got ruined but at least it’s having a second life this way! 🙂
Your outfit looks fab I love the skirt the detail is so pretty!
This outfit is so darling and fabulous at the same time. I love the skirt paired with the fur so much!
This is a fabulously elegant and chic look – the fur collar is very special, as is the box bag!!
I love the vintage stole and bag! You look amazing as always! Too bad the top was moth-eaten but your tailor turned it into an amazing skirt! I really love vintage because it has more character than new clothes. 🙂

That vintage bag is adorable! I really like the skirt too. Wonderful that it could be made into a skirt and you could salvage some of it. Plus like you said it’s really easily worn this way rather than being just an evening dress.
Hope you’ve had a great weekend!
