Ruffled Feathers

Feather Skirt

Club Monaco Feathered Skirt

Feather Skirt

Skirt: Club Monaco. Blazer: Zara. Top: J.Crew (similar). Shoes: Nine West. Tights: Hue. Handbag: Chanel. Rings: Stella & Dot, H&M.

 

This Club Monaco feather skirt is just so much fun to wear!  Although I think I may sometimes push the boundaries of work appropriate attire, even I know that a feathered mini is not be the best option for the office.  I wore this outfit to work last week but swapped out the feather skirt for a black circle skirt during the day, then switched to the feathers for some after work cocktails.

 

Thank you to everyone who has entered the Ciate Mini Mani Month Giveaway, and thank you for all of the wonderful nail polish recommendations.  I’ll definitely be checking some of them out.  Just a reminder that the contest is open until Monday!

    I think ruffles and feathers are so swinging 20s and you gave this look an update with that Chanel and blazer. Brilliant!

    I was sad that you changed into a plain skirt but then I read cocktails! Yay for fabulous cocktails after work :). Super look Jenny – the blazer lends a real edge and the ruffled blouse is unexpected.

    Love this look – that skirt is fabulous! It looks perfect dressed up, but also looks like it might play nicely with a cozy gray/ivory/black sweatshirt and tights for the weekend. Also, is the black circle skirt you wore it to work with in any other posts? I’d be interested in knowing where you got it. Thank you so much!

      Thanks so much Kate, and thanks for stopping by! Here is a link to the skirt, but come to think of it, I guess it’s more of a pleated skirt than a circle skirt. I wear it all of the time though, and it’s from Topshop. http://www.crazystylelove.com/2012/07/secret-no-more/

    I love your feather skirt! Every time I see something similar in stores or online I want to buy it but then I think that it’s out of fashion already, and when I see it on you I regret that didn’t get it!!!!! No more thinking next time!:)

      Arghh, you’ve hit a sore spot with me Miranda. . . Project Runway airs several months in Canada after it has already aired in the U.S. I’m really bitter about it because I LOVE that show! The current all star season hasn’t even started airing here yet. Ha ha, I vaguely remember Uli from the previous season she was on. Thanks so much Miranda! 🙂
