The Long Story

Well, I did it again my friends!  It seems when I go through a closet purging spree I inadvertantly give away “Just” the right thing.  So what was it this time that has has me steaming mad?!  My long skirts.  Yep folks, I made the wrong decision when I tore my maxi skirt from the hanger and tossed it haphazardly into my “going to goodwill” bag simply because the maxi is the “it” piece of the moment.  Fashionistas left and right are donning these floor sweepers with basic tees and

shrunken moto-style jackets and rugged boots and they are all looking divine!  So how to do the look right?  Keep the proportions in tact.  Never don a long flowy skirt with a boxy floppy shirt.  Instead, tug on a slim-fitted turtleneck, tee, or tank and layer a cropped leather or wool jacket over.  Tie the look together with a wide belt at the waist and a thick chunky scarf around your neck.  Avoid wearing a swashbuckling belt slung low on the hips which will totally date your look and look more “southwest” than suave.

Where to wear?  Throw on this prefectly posh number for day or night… You’ll be more evening appropriate with a heeled shoe while daytime calls for a flat.
