When it comes to fashion, my natural instinct is to pile on the layers and accessories. Sometimes I have to remind myself of the KISS principle, and keep it simple, stupid. Sometimes it’s better to let the details and patterns speak for themselves and not be overshadowed.
I found this skirt at Buffalo Exchange and I was first drawn to the fun color and bow, but after picking it up, realized how well made it also is. When I got home, I searched the label (Milly of New York) and found that their pieces run in the few hundred dollar range so it was a great score for $20. On that trip I also found two Anthropologie skirts, one with the tags still on, so instead of feeling like I shouldn’t have spent $50, I patted myself on the back for saving about $450 ;) Justification at it’s best.
