Work Style: Gilded


I found this skirt on a thrifting venture a few years ago and was immediately drawn to the gilded paisley print and lacy trim. I imagined wearing it in Moscow, standing in front of Saint Basil’s Cathedral, exhaling puffs of cold air, swathed in a exotic furry hat and muff. Since that particular vision has not yet come to fruition, I figured I’d better think of some other way to wear it.


Pairing it with neutrals and muted shades works, and adding a blazer makes it a bit more work-appropriate. Inspired by this guy (is he fab or what?), I also added a peacock feather on the lapel of the blazer for interest. Our CEO told me I looked like I’d been in a fight with a peacock.  I told him I had. And I’d won.

Cardigan, The Limited; blazer, Express; belt, skirt, and clutch, vintage; heels, Steven; bracelet, craft market.

    🙂 so glad I’m not the only ones who gets exotic visions of where clothes should be worn…

    Great look! I’d be so afraid to wear a skirt that long (stumpy legs and all). It looks beautiful here.

      Thanks, Workchic! I’m always amused when I come across “duplicates” while thrift shopping…

    It may just be the way you styled it, but I think that is the purchase from a thrift store I have seen. Would look fabulous in the office, with or without the blazer; depending on the office environment of’course.
    Perfectly styled right down to the bracelet!
