Last night, I was chatting with one of my tweeps and she mentioned a fierce outfit she put together using items shopped from her own closet. By the way, you can find me on twitter at @economyofstyle. Today, I was so inspired by her tweet that I decided to pull something older from my closet that I hadn’t worn in a long time—a Context brocade skirt.
I purchased this brocade skirt with its woven shiny fabric and tonal floral design at least five years ago when Lord & Taylor was going out of business in St. Louis. It’s one of those pieces that I don’t wear much, but I want to own forever.
In an attempt to make the skirt work today, I paired it with a stripe tank, belted it, then topped it off with a mint green blazer for a fresh spring look.
