"Mildly pink" is how one of my coworkers referred to this skirt when she saw this outfit this morning. I’m pretty sure she was joking:
I know that some might argue that I shouldn’t swath the largest part of my body in hot pink silk, but my thighs said it was okay. They even said that after they secede (yes, I have secessionist thighs) and become their own country they might include hot pink on their national flag. What can I say? My thighs and I love a good, eye-searing hot pink.
This particular hot pink delight is actually a dress; a very 80s dress with a very 80s bodice that I’m still not sure what to do with. Until I figure it out though, I thought I could wear the dress (thrifted) as a skirt. So I layered it under a charcoal wool sweater (thrifted) and added opaque black tights (Spanx via Nordstrom) and black wedge booties (Nine West “Peekaboo” via Piperlime). I have to say that really like this dress as a skirt, so perhaps I’ll take the bodice off altogether? We’ll see.
Finally, because it's Thursday, I'm linked up to Spunky Chateau's Thursdays are for Thrifters Link Party. Are you a thrifter? If so, you should definitely join in.
Happy Thursday, Everyone!
