Choosing texture over color

When did I wear this outfit again?
Sometime last week I think, but it was raining, so I didn't get around to photographing it until this weekend, and since it was raining again today I didn't take outfit photos again.

Ever since Alex of Delayed Missives gave me the idea to wear this skirt backwards, I have fallen in love with it all over again. It's like a newer, sexier skirt. That also was completely unzippped when I came home from work that day I wore it. No one said anything, so I'm going to assume it happened sometime between leaving the office and the car ride home.
I mean, I hope if my skirt were unzipped all the way up the back and I was walking around like that for hours someone would have let me know.

Do you tell your coworkers when you see they are having a wardrobe malfunction?

Cute outfit. That skirt is great backwards, what a fabulous idea. Oh and yes, I even tell random people when something is array.
Cheers,

What a great way to get a "new" skirt! I love this backwards. And the classic pairing of white and black is so stunning. I would hope that someone would tell me too! I'm sure it happened on the car ride home. Don't worry 'bout it baby.

I'm sorry the rain... rains on your parade... :( I really love this outfit, though! I love black and white together (like, a LOT), so this is already a plus for me! but you've managed to mix in a lot of different textures (like the delicate ruffles and the zipper) that just make this whole outfit impressive!

Love the idea of wearing this skirt backwards! It's so cool no matter which way you wear it too.

Yes, I feel you should always tell someone if they have a wardrobe malfunction (or food in their teeth, or a booger hanging out of their nose). I would want someone to tell me! Heather

Anne said...

Ooh, I really like the skirt backwards. And I always love a black and white outfit.

Autumn Van Weir said...

So the zipper goes on the front?? It looks awesome in back! Def make it a whole other skirt! Very cute outfit. I dig the b&w sometimes.

I keep seeing that blazer on different bloggers and totally wish I'd bought it.

Just yesterday I told some poor girl on campus that her bag had pinched her skirt and it was riding up enough to expose a healthy chunk of her right ass cheek. I hope people will tell others when they're having a malfunction!

This is such a great, classic outfit - I never get tired of black and white together.

Yeah, if I saw someone - ANYONE - with their skirt unzipped, I would tell them!

Amber Blue Bird said...

Do you remember that band kris kross? You could totally be a member and rock the backwards skirt :) I once walked around the office with ink on my forehead for at least an hour and only noticed it when I went to the restroom.

Nikki said...

oh, that moment when you notice your zipper is open. gah, hate it when that happens ^^ I love this outfit, that top is so pretty! x

eek said...

Great outfit! I love the striped blazer. I hope your wardrobe malfunction was at the end of the day. I hate when I have stuff in my teeth and no one says anything!

The Closet Shopper said...

Gorgeous. I love they way you wore the skirt on 8/24. But I really love this way too. And you chose Black and white both times. Classic, chic, and simple. Love it.

xo,
Tracy

Ashley said...

Love your blazer! I think you probably would have felt it if had been unzipped for that long. I have a skirt like that and I know I can tell when it starts to go.

I probably wouldn't tell my co-workers they were having a wardrobe malfunction unless I really liked them. Teehee.

Shelby said...

love the combination of the tiered ruffles and wide stripes on top!! i tell people if they have wardrobe malfunctions, but if their clothes just look bad i usually keep it to myself... <3shelby

It is truly a wonderful skirt!

Jessica said...

What a great way to wear the skirt! I love this mix of B&W. With patterns and texture like this, the classic color palette is never boring!

Alex Elizabeth said...

Ha! I would have told you if came unzipped. That's actually one of my fears whenever I wear that skirt, although mine locks firmly at the bottom. That striped blazer looks awesome with this outfit! When I first saw it I was thinking nautical... but now I'm thinking classy classy!

I certainly hope that my coworkers would tell me! To be safe i try to wear cute underoos so if there is a situation I'll still be cute! Love the back zip!

Lorena said...

Nice.
I sure hope someone would tell me.
I think I probably would tell them. Well if I liked them.

Love the ruffles layered underneath the stripes!
