Carpet Skirt & Linen Shirt

Yesterday I wore one of my favorite skirts (I say everything in my closet is my fave, but it really is) that I altered a little by hiking up the hemline. That's the great thing about shopping for vintage- it doesn't matter if it's not your size or fits you a little odd, you can always get it tailored to fit you properly! 
Worn with a men's linen shirt, vintage pins, earrings, and bag, Yves Saint Laurent pumps, and Karen Walker sunglasses.
Have a lot to do today, better get started. Happy Monday!

that is the most gorgeous outfit. It is simple, elegant, and very, very chic. The way you have teamed the detailed skirt and ornate broach with a crisp, plain white shirt is just perfection... and those shoes literally make me mad with jealousy. X
