Full-Skirted Flurry



Full skirts have been seen everywhere lately and, with my love for retro ladylike pieces, this is one trend I was eager to try.  So when eShakti offered to let me choose a piece from their new line, this geometric print quickly caught my eye.  I decided to balance out the swingy shape with a leather jacket & lace-up booties (inspired by this Jessica Alba look), but I can't wait to wear it with strappy sandals & a striped top come spring.  
 
eShakti has graciously offered an exclusive discount for PPF readers.  If you've never ordered from them before, you will love their customization options - you can specify your height & exact measurements so a perfect fit is guaranteed!  Check out their spring arrivals here & use code PENNYPNCHE at checkout (thru 3/20) to receive 20% off your purchase. 
 
 



What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 sweater (similar here or here), BB Dakota jacket (purchased with ShopBop gift card; on sale here), c/o eShakti skirt, RoseGold booties (via eBay; similar here or here), c/o Angela & Roi bag, c/o JewelIQ earrings (similar), Tobi ring (here), Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Coral Berry, Nails: Revlon Trade Winds

Gorgeous outfit! I have seen a couple of lovely fuller skirts around now and need to get my hands on one! They are so flattering and feminine.

I love the dresses and skirts from eShakti. Too bad they don't ship internationally.

Love this chic leather jacket! I'm so jealous of all the snow you've gotten-we haven't had any yet this year! I'm sure you're over it though. :) Happy Monday! xo.

I am way too short to pull that skirt off, but on you it looks great. I'm loving the unique hemline, and the fullness too. My four year old would authoritatively tell you that your skirt "spins really well," which is her key criteria for suitability of any skirt or dress. Great outfit.

MsMayg said...

such gorgeous pictures! i love that you were brave enough to head out in the snow!

brooke said...

graphic patterns are so on trend and i love how you've paired it was some basics. and i love that the skirt has pockets!
