Two Stylish Kays: BDIB: My First Maxi Skirt

BDIB: My First Maxi Skirt

Friday, July 15, 2011

Skirt- Thrifted (Goodwill)/ Top- Club Monaco (Value Village)/ Shoes- BCBG (Plato's Closet)/ Accesories- Funky Flair Boutique/ Watch- Michael Kors (Macy's)/ Hair- Baizara Campbell

When I saw that this month's assignment for Bloggers Do It Better Challenge, I was in shock because it made me realize that I as much as I love fashion, I did not own a maxi skirt.  But that shock quickly turned into relief, because I knew that I would make it my duty to find one during our "I Love Thrifting" party here in Atlanta.




Yes...I found this maxi skirt at  my local Goodwill and even through it is velvet, I thought it would a great transition piece for my Fall wardrobe. It would also be great to wear to a holiday party.





I will confess...I am wearing my top backwards. I liked the drama of the plunging neckline, but it looked better on my back instead of exposing my chest. Plus I did not have any double-sided tape. LOL..Check out Bloggers Do It Better to see how other ladies rocked their maxi skirts.

  1. Yes....I never really got into the"maxi skirt"  trend because I love showing my legs. So the #BDIB was my opportunity to jump on the bandwagon. Now I'm ready to add a few more to my wardrobe.

  8. Thanks for the compliment. Yes it's velvet! And you know that was one reason I second guessed purchasing it. But once I tried it on, I knew I had to take it home with me.

  21. Woziers for the bold color of the skirt. Definitely.jtely a thumbs up for the whole look. I'm.experimenting more with wearing items in unusual ways. If it doesn't work I can try something different next time ;)

  30. I've yet to own a maxi :-(
    This looks so sleek and sophisticated. The long V in the back versus the front is a nice touch to the whole look and the colors!! Goodness -- you rocked this!

  31. That skirt was meant for you. Why because I was going to buy it at the Lavisita Goodwill the weekend prior and decided to put it back because it was too short for me. I love love love the color style feel of it. I'm glad to see it made it's way to a good home. :)

  38. o wow! that is a really good idea. i may have to try putting on some of my tops backwards.

  39. I can't believe you found a velvet maxi skirt. I love how bright and attention-getting your whole outfit is, especially with how you decided to wear your top backwards. I always think showing a little back is sexier than having the chest out.

  42. This combo is absolutely bananas! The colors look so great together and I would've never guessed that your shirt was on backwards. That was definitely a genius move-one that I'm gonna have to steal shortly. I can't wait to see how you rock this skirt over the holidays.

  44. I also didn't own a Maxi Skirt until this May. For some reason I always thought they would make me look frumpy, but once I tried on one at H&M I was hooked!
