The Lace Obsession Continues (OOTD)

I bought this lace skirt yesterday while I was looking around Express. I was on the hunt for a black dress to wear to my friend's wedding in three weeks (she wants her guests to wear black if possible) and I am growing tired of the other thousand LBD's hanging in my closet. So I needed one thousand and one. Look for it to make an appearance on this little blog in a few weeks!  This lacey skirt is made of the same material as the dress, and I love the way it fits. Not like I needed another black lace skirt, but. Um. Yeah, I don't know. There's no way to justify this purchase other than I like it! And it doesn't ride up the bum like my other lace skirt from Forever 21.

I ended up wearing it out to dinner later in the afternoon. I've been schlepping around the house for the past couple of days and it felt good to put some heels and some lipgloss on!


Must. Get. New. Camera.



Black lace skirt: Express
Blazer with ruched sleeves: Necessary Objects Via Nordstrom
White top: Love 21
Chain necklaces: American Eagle
Patent peep toe pumps with bows: Unisa Via Marshalls
Creme leather bag: Juicy Couture, have owned it for years!


Is there anything you keep gravitating to in stores, even though you already own similar items in your closet? It needs to stop Readers, it needs to stop.

  1. That skirt is cute! Yes, I keep gravitating toward the color black...and yes, I need to stop! Black skirts, dresses, pants, blouses. My closet is organized by color, as it would appear in a rainbow [anal, i know ;)] and the black section is nearly half my wardrobe! I put myself on probation this summer. It was hard, but I wore/purchased very little black.

  3. I really like the skirt - black lace skirts are quite versatile too. Dress it up super glam for evening or team it with something more demure for work. Fab :)

    Veronika: I hope you find one! I know you have a hard time with length. I do too, but because of the opposite reason ;)

  18. Pretty! You look classically chic in your outfit. And the lace skirt adds just a little bit of trendy appeal.

    I need to stop buying black pencil skirts. I have far too many and really, when I'm wearing them, they all look the same!
