Thrifted Trends: Cognac Leather Skirt

Thursday, January 19, 2012

What I Wore: Top- Willow Ridge & Skirt- Interim (B & R Thrift Store)/ Necklace- (Loehmann's)/ Shoes- Steve Madden (Marshalls)/ Purse- LV Speedy 30 (Louis Vuitton) 

I wore this outfit yesterday to tape a preview story for our World Swap Day Atlanta event this Saturday. Since it was a cold day in Atlanta, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to wear my leather cognac leather skirt. I must admit this skirt was initially selected for one of our Happy Hour Thrifting members, but it was not the right size for her. So I welcomed it into my wardrobe. I love that it is a pencil skirt plus it has high waist too!! Also pairing it with a soft, silk blouse makes the look very lady-like. Don't you think? 

Well enough about my outfit. Please be sure to check out our feature story, which will air this week on 11 Alive News with news reporter Valerie Huff. Not in the Atlanta area? No worries, I will post a link on my blog. 

Here are a few pictures from our taping today:

It's interview time!
I thought my outfit would be a good color to wear for the camera! Plus I am really trying to add a little more color to my wardrobe. Are you, like me, guilty of always wearing black? It's such an easy, sophisticated color to wear. What is your go-to-color of choice?

Whould you like to comment?
