I ended up getting out of there with just two new skirts. Not bad. And this high-waisted multicolored velvet one from Gorman was my splurge.
I wasn't even sure if I was going to make it out of there with anything. I loved everything at Gorman, but the different sizing kind of threw me off and I just wanted to make sure I was getting something that I couldn't get back home.
The different colors and shapes on the silk white fabric create some sort of balance for me. So many dots and zig zags. It's definitely a busy skirt, but with a fairly simple shoe and straightforward top it seems to work.
[Gorman skirt; J.Crew shirt; restyled necklace; Madewell sandals; ring from Schatzelein]
P.S. I want to buy more velvet now, like this velvet schoolboy blazer that I blogged about here. What do you think?
