Sequins and Suede

Thursday, July 12, 2012 100 0

Top: H&M. Skirt: Danier. Handbag: Balenciaga. Shoes: Jimmy Choo (similar here). All Jewellery: Forever 21. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

This luxe combination of sequins and suede instantly added a little glamour to my daytime attire. Β A midi length is not one I buy often, but I just love the super soft suede, form fitting shape, and feminine frill of this skirt. Β I’m curious. . .do you wear midi length skirts?

      Thanks Alison! I threw on a brown cardigan for most of the day (because it’s so cold in my office), but I definitely felt appropriate at work without it on.

    Nice mixing of sparkly and suede. Very glamorous. Even a midi length looks amazing on you- you’ve got a great body!

    I also really love the color palette of this outfit. Very flattering πŸ™‚

      Weird, mine are the most comfortable shoes ever! These are from several years ago, and I bought similar styles in so many colours and different heel heights (brown, black, silver, gold and bronze-all on sale mind you!). My feet hurt in almost ALL shoes, but these don’t hurt at all! This style is called Jasmin (4″ heel) or Jag (3″ heel) (I have both), and a few years back I think they stopped making the 4″ heel and changed the 3″ to the name India. I think they may have changed the shape slightly. I don’t own the newer style, but maybe that’s what you bought? That sucks though, because when you spend good money on something, you want to be able to wear it!

    So a few things. First off I finally added you to my reader. What took me so long?! Secondly I love the textures in this outfit. The suede and sequins is so interesting and I love that they are in similar color family. Thirdly- this look is a bit different than your norm and I love it!

      Ha ha! First off, thank you for the support. Secondly, I’m a sucker for sequins. Thirdly, that’s too funny because I feel like this is a typical outfit for me, but you are right. I guess looking at the other outfits I’ve posted, this is a little more dressy maybe? Thanks so much Hannah! πŸ™‚

    While I love the length (b/c it shows my only skinny area, my calves haha) I can’t help but wonder is the suede material too warm in the summer time?

    • Jenny
      July 12, 2012

      Thanks! Surprisingly, this skirt is very light weight and definitely works in the summer. Plus, my office is air conditioned and it feels like I’m in an icebox half the time! I usually look dressed for winter in the middle of the summer! πŸ™‚
