WIW 11.19.13 - Anna's Skirt and a Whole Lotta Black

Anna offered to sell this skirt to me and I have been hemming and hawing because I couldn't figure out how to style it. She suggested I just wear it with my black turtleneck. She's so smart! I really like this! Thanks Anna :)

P.S. I was too tired to smile when I took this photo. Coffee has since remedied the problem, lol!

    I love the simplicity of the top in contrast to detail on the skirt!

    Gorgeous. That skirt really shines with the black turtle! LOVE it.

    I think you look great, like the glamorous special agent in a spy thriller that comes in and sorts everyone out!!

    Anna, you're the best :)

    Super fab!  That's a fantastic skirt. 

    Black toppers are perfect for statement bottoms (crazypants, interesting skirts, and the like), which is why I don't feel guilty owning a million black tops.

    cool! I love the curve pleat details in the skirt! & It looks very nice with your hair color...

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    YLF!! I love it paired with the black turtlenck and the leather, yet simply enough to let the skirt sing. Oh, so fab!

  • rae replied 5 years ago

    Cool skirt! And perfect styling - the leather plays with the ruffles nicely.

  • LACeleste replied 5 years ago

    Wow!  How lucky to have Anna as your friend and fashion advisor!  You look beautiful!

  • Zapotee replied 5 years ago

    And I am so in need of Anna advice, man, she has a skill there with edging up work outfits.

  • carambola replied 5 years ago

    This skirt is perfect for you. Love the styling. 

  • Angie replied 5 years ago

    Killer

    Modern Classics seldom let us down - turtleneck and moto in this case - when we're stuck with what to pair with a bottom. Loving the bookended opaques and booties with the top black half of the outfit. Great job Amy and Anna. 

  • Vicki replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeous look, Amy, as I applaud Anna on styling and you on the execution of her idea.

    P. S. You still look pretty even without coffee (but, I know what you mean).

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    Fantastic!! This is one of my favourites on you, ever. It has detail (which you love) and the detail stands out because of the simple backdrop. Great mix of textures, too. Fantastic suggestions from Anna and so glad the skirt has a happy home!

  • Emily replied 5 years ago

    The skirt looks fab on you, and the styling looks bang on!  Well done, you and Anna.
    And better a somber pre-coffee face than a dopey pre-coffee face :D

  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago

    Amazing - glad the coffee worked :)

  • karymk replied 5 years ago

    I like the skirt a lot! 

  • Janet replied 5 years ago

    Beautiful!

  • Aubergine replied 5 years ago

    That's a great skirt, and the black definitely lets it stand out!

  • Tricia replied 5 years ago

    Oh, I love it. What jacket is that? I'm in the market for something similar...

  • Sveta replied 5 years ago

    This skirt looks very you, Ammy. Anna is right : it is perfect with a simple t-neck. I bet it would be great with a simple button down too.

  • Adelfa replied 5 years ago

    I love how the skirt picks up your hair color. The whole outfit looks great.

  • Windchime replied 5 years ago

    Wow! This outfit is amazing on you, even pre-caffeine! The skirt color really suits you, and the black adds sophistication. This is a very happy next chapter for the skirt.

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    Amy you look incredible! Anna you are amazing!

  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    Well you know I love a whole lot of black!  This is such a cool outfit.  It is very office appropriate but still has interest and edge.  Love it.

    Love your precaffeine pose and face looking  ready to confront the world:-)--skirt is a statement, I can see why you wanted it, and styled to perfection!
