Saturation

I never thought I’d see the day, but I’m getting a little tired of shopping. My closet is full and I have plenty of options of things to wear to work, to party, to lay in bed with the cats with, to attend a black-tie affair (I did end up keeping the Lanvin skirt), and so forth. I mean, I’m still browsing online and looking at gorgeous clothing, but really…why? Of course I could find items to covet but do I need to add more to my closet? There are a few caveats, of course. I’m still desperate for a pair of (affordable) leather pants or leggings, a pair of dark denim waxed jeans, and the perfect over-the-knee boots.

One item I knocked off the list was a bright, saturated pink skirt. It’s been a journey. I searched stores. I searched ebay. I searched fabric stores in hopes of having a skirt made. Nothing was ever bright enough. Then I found it on etsy from vintage seller, Vintage Riches. It was on hold for someone else but I got lucky I was able to buy it when the first buyer fell through. Lucky me, because it fits (a little tight, but I’ll suffer) and it’s pink enough.  Seriously. It’s just as bright in real life as it is in the photos. I could not be freaking happier!

It came with a matching cape which doesn’t fit me quite as well, but I suspect it will see a second life as another type of garment. Today I paired with shades of grey to make the pink stand out even more and some neon jewelry.

    That skirt is a blazing hot color.  I like that you toned it down with the neutrals.

    I feel the same way, I continue to stalk a few items on eBay but otherwise I have more than enough options. I also had very little to get rid of when I switched out my wardrobe to fall/winter, so I think that’s always a good sign.

    Great shade of pink! Nowadays I call that “Jil Sander” pink after Raf’s SS2011 collection.

    How many ways do I love this outfit? Surface to Air, number 1. Bright Neon vintage skirt, number 2. DIY jewels, put it over the top. Killer.

    Wait – I’m sorry, I think I just passed out. Did you just say you are now the proud owner of a retina-searing neon pink cape???? I…I…I..that’s so awesome.

    I love that skirt on you, such a burst of color. Goes great with the gray blazer and black boots. I love your accessories too. So pretty.

    The bright skirt color is fabulous! You can never go wrong with a bright pink in my book!

    I have boots that are almost identical to these you have on.  Perfect fall pieces.  Love.

    That feeling when you’re looking for a clothing item or accessory and you finally find it?? Only this group of girls/bloggers I think can understand! It’s bliss. Looks great, but what was that about ended up keeping the Lanvin skirt. Why? Did it decide to get up and walk away? It is amaze on you and hope you weren’t considering giving it up. Anyways, have a great weekend. sorry for the novel!
