Spin me round

When I saw Delayed Missives' new pencil skirt with an exposed zipper in back, I immediately knew I had to take my front zipper pencil skirt and spin it around to the back. It felt instantly sexier. One of my coworkers told me I looked like a Dolce and Gabbana model. I'm not sure if this look really fits in with their current add campaign, but it's a compliment and I'll happily take it.

Also, I am aware that the elements of today's outfit are identical to those of yesterdays outfit. I actually didn't realize that I'd put on a dolman sleeve top with a pencil skirt, statement necklace and thick strapped sandals until it was too late to change - but you know what we always say, when a silhouette works...

  2. D&G model is such a nice compliment. Way to go, coworker!
    I like this silhoutte that you have perfected. It does indeed work! And, I love the turned around zipper -- good idea on a way to re-wear a piece!

  3. You look great. Exposed zippers will always be a favorite of mine. Hey, I e-mailed about that necklace (the one you're wearing in this post and feature in your sidebar) and never heard back from the contact that you have listed :(

  35. I love my new back zipper skirt but I think side zip are cool as well. Mine won't work like that but yours might!

    A long time ago The Sartorialist posted about the personal silhouette, and I really like the idea of that. This could be one of yours!

  37. cute skirt and I really do like that top on you. I have a love/hate relationship with dolman tops. They just look funky on me. You clearly do not have this problem.

  38. What a brilliant idea to turn the skirt around. I agree with your co-worker that you look like a Dolce and Gabbana model.

  49. Gorgeous top! I keep seeing the kimono sleeve style popping up everywhere but I was unsure how to style it other than with some skinny jeans. You have totally inspired me!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Everything about this is perfect! You look beautiful! I love exposed zippers; they're edgy and incredibly hot. And I could wear that silhouette every day too! I love flowy on top and curve-hugging on the bottom. Oh, and I love your necklace! It fits with the whole lovely monochromatic look, but makes a statement without any color at all.
