Black cashmere tank from Banana Republic, black ponte jacket from Banana Republic Outlet, Chinese red shantung skirt from Banana Republic (definite theme here!), leopard peeptoe heels from BCBGirls, gold necklace from Express, gold bangles from Ralph Lauren.

Hair was washed and conditioned, dried with my Croc wet-to-dry iron. No products.'

Makeup is L'Oreal True Match concealer in W1-3, Benefit's That Gal, philosophy The Supernatural in Beige, Nars blush in Orgasm, Revlon ColorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – ivory over whole lid. Lashes curled, two coats Cover Girl Lash Blast and one of Imju Fiberwig. Maybelline Ultraliner in black on top lash line and on lips is some Revlon Shiny Sheers in a sheer red that I left at home by accident so do not have to read the label.

I am not really sure what is going on with the layout of my posts; I have not done anything different so it must be that Blogger is being stupid again.

This outfit is inspired by Catie's contest at Cuffington. This outfit makes me fabulous inside… though notsomuch when I walk past my reflection in a window. I adore this skirt, it is so much fun and the color is awesome. The cashmere tank is really thick and I have had it for years and got it for like $10 on the clearance rack. Jacket has given me many miles and I love its versatility and the shoes… oh I love these shoes so much I have two pairs of them! All that is missing is my silver cuff, this great green ring I bought at a Ren Fest and my wedding tiara and I would be wearing almost all my favorite things! 🙂 Too bad this skirt isn't the most flattering (the one my husband says makes me look like Mimi from Drew Carey) or I would wear it every week! 🙂

    I love this look too. The skirt certainly doesn’t look unflattering in the photo… dare I say that maybe Mr Allie is wrong in this instance?! The colour of the skirt is fab – do you have a lippie in that colour?

    I love the red! I have a skirt this color as well and it’s a wrap skirt with a tulle-ish underskirt. I’m dying to wear it but it’s such a bright red, I don’t know what to pair it with for either a work setting or party. Do you have any suggestions? I have dark skin by the way.

    thanks–love your blog!

    For the record, I love the outfit- think that it’s a good one for you and it’s nice to get the colour on the bottom – usually we see you in darker bottoms. Mimi? No WAY!

    Speaking of wedding tiaras, have you ever posted a wedding pic? If not, would you be willing? I love seeing brides!
