Vintage Suede




Since I recently had great luck scoring a real leather pencil skirt at the thrift store for next to nothing, I decided to hunt for a suede version.  Thankfully, I found this vintage style on eBay for less than $30 and in my size!  I love the 70's vibe that it has, plus the color is perfect for fall - I can't wait to pair it with a chunky knit & tights when the weather gets cooler.  For now, though,  I decided to keep the retro theme going with a plaid scarf & fold-over clutch, but modernized it with this structured-shoulder top & my favorite peep-toe booties.  





What I'm wearing:
c/o Chicnova top (here), Target scarf (similar), Vintage skirt, Nina booties (similar), Ann Taylor cuff (similar), Vintage earrings (similar), Urban Expressions clutch (on sale here), Dockers aviators (on sale here)

The skirt is really beautiful. I love the slightly A-line shape to it. Is it comfortable? I'd love to find one...but I wonder if it would feel stiff or heavy.

I also recently thrifted a gorgeous Ann Taylor leather skirt - but I'm LOVING this suede version. You seem to have such good luck with eBay. I'd love to see a post on how you shop for clothing on the site, find the right sizing, avoid counterfeits, etc.

Beautiful Skirt Kimberly and the whole look is wonderful !

Kimberly said...

Lisa: the skirt is actually not that heavy - while it does have more structure to it (and no stretch, since it's suede), it is still comfortable to wear and easy to move around in.

MegB: I actually did a post with my personal tips & tricks for shopping on eBay that you can find here ~ http://www.pennypincherfashion.com/2011/11/ask-ppf-ebay-shopping.html

Absolutely love this! That skirt is so amazing.
