What We Wore: Asymmetry in Silk

Another one of our favorite pieces, this deep aubergine distressed silk skirt came from the Victoria's Secret catalog clearance, under $30 of course. It has multiple layers and an asymmetrical hem, with covered button detailing at the waist and a flyaway side (hence why we're wearing a second skirt beneath, a black chiffon pointy-hem dance skirt from Discount Dance Supply, as seen in Lucky, about $17). The black top with velvet faux-corset trim is also from Vicky's, about $15 (we also bought this one in lavender. Help us!). We'd like to take this moment to briefly thank you all for putting up with our terrible cell phone photos and promise once again to find a solution soon!

We were horrified to find that all of our black tights are at the man's house, so we ended up with grey (from a 2-pack at Marshalls for $5); and actually we're pretty pleased, because rather than disappearing into the tights, the black underlayer actually shows a bit (not that you can tell here). We like grey with purple, in general, although we own almost none.

Boots are the flat elven western ones, $30 (lurve).

Accessories: Large purple rose/peacock fascinator from SweetXcessories @ Etsy, $7
Beaded choker with drop- gift from friend c. 2001? Free
Earrings by us (like these, only purple), retail price $13

You can kind of see the corset detailing in the shirt here, and the square neckline which is flattering but not revealing (we've decided to nix the excessive cleavage at work).

Happy Hump Day!


  1. OMG! I love your blog! This is right up my alley. I am obsessed with finding the best bargain and still looking amazing. So great!


  2. I think today must be national purple day - I'm wearing it, so are tonnes of people in my office (guys too) and now here you are looking lovely.

    Of course, given our love for the color, it's statistically likely that on any given day we'll be wearing violet/aubergine/eggplant, but I still think a minor conspiracy is afoot :)

  3. I love greay tights - much better than black. Love the skirt too.


I love (and live on) your comments so thank you!
