I must confess that I am a sucker for anything with volume, stripes and that is candy inspired. This skirt is a perfect marriage of all three. I spotted it the other day at American Apparel, and for a mere $25, I walked out of there with my head spinning with possibilities. I adore the effortless swing this skirt has, and it adds an old world circa 1950s charm to any top. It is especially divine when paired with this semi-transparent-awesome-back Free People top, a high bun and plenty of quirky jewels. And you can’t forget these darling shoes – love the bow and the sweet scalloped detailing. This outfit has got me in the mood for some 50s jams and maybe a petticoat to add even more volume (yes, I happen to have my eye on this one here – there is just so much potential…).
