Gently Deranged

After last winter’s Lucky Guide to Mastering Any Style experiment, I’ll always think of this skirt as my “deranged British gentlewoman” skirt.

Jacket, Odds ‘n Evens (thrifted). Dress (worn as top), American Apparel. Skirt, Jones New York Country (thrifted). Fishnet tights, Merona. Oxford pumps, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Earrings, thrifted. Scarf, import store. Bangles, Epcot Morocco. Watch, Raymond Weil.


I’m certainly feeling the Posh Eclectic’s “disregard for what’s acceptable” today. The combination of my shiny AA dress, fishnet tights, and jangly bangles is probably inappropriate for work. Hopefully, I’ve toned it down enough with my “country-estate frump.”


Just for fun, here’s all the ways I’ve worn the deranged skirt (I thrifted it almost three years ago):

"Madcap Eclectic" or whatever was my favorite of the Lucky styles--I love this look on you! You pull it off effortlessly. I'm always, always trying to be more madcap :) I'd love it you'd check out my blog--I do love yours.

I love seeing how your style evolves with one item - you've changed it so much! It's an awesome skirt.

Adele said...

That skirt is SO awesome! I want I want! =D

Diana Draw said...

You look great! Esp. love the scarf.

Wouldn't that be a "mad Scottish handmaiden" or something? I thought that plaid was Scottish...

Sal said...

I adore that skirt. I think plaid done weird is the only way to go - why make yourself look like a Scottish lad when you can go with way of Vivienne Westwood?

Krissie said...

Love it! This was the plaid of my grade school uniform... which happened to be a skort/coolot thing. Oh, the memories!

I just want to say that I love when you post a recap of all the times you have worn a certain item. It really shows how versitile things can be.

Becky said...

I love the skirt but what I love most is how you were able to create a lot of looks with it. I didn't see any boring ensemble at all.

Dimonds said...

I love that skirt!! and the Shoes! A great look. =D I like the bright contrast of the pink at the neck.

I really love the combination of the outfit. The skirt and your top look classy lady-like, while the addition of you fishnet tights adds a sort of sexy side to the outfit.

Love the outfit, VERY Sexy! ;-)
