applied inspiration











I felt quite inspired after seeing Topshop’s winter story (seen here), so much so that I instinctively reached into my closet for sparkly fabrics, saturated colors and chunky knits – honestly! One of the major players in this look is clearly this gorgeous long skirt, which is also my newest purchase. After weeks of searching and much disappointment, I stumbled upon this one – a $20 wonder from the racks of Forever 21. I especially love the luxurious color and sheen fabric not to mention the flowy length. They have a wide selection of different styles and colors and I am about to turn around and try on more and more. I am quite enamored by the grunge chic look of right now, and these white keds are the perfect contrast to the dressy layers.
