Outfit

There are two very notable and exciting parts to my outfit today. The first is that, yes, I am holding a real CHANEL bag. Unfortunately I do not own it; my life long goal is that one day I may own my very own Chanel bag. It belongs to my mother in law and she's allowed me to borrow if for my admission as a lawyer tomorrow. She mentioned this near the beginning of the year and it's an aspect of admission I've looked forward to ever since. Because I am so in love with it and I don't know when the next time I hold a Chanel bag will be, I decided to take some pictures with it. Can you tell how much I love it from the pictures where I'm hugging this treasure? I am super in love with her (this bag needs a name); the perfect quilting, the beautifully crafted hardware, the perfectly structured logos and the classy deep red lining are all stand out features. It's so classy and the ultimate fashion piece. I also believe it would make a wonderful decoration for the house.

Next I have my new skirt by Pho Sizzle Threads. I've written a few times about this fun and creative emerging label. After owning my namesake skirt, 'The Imogen Skirt', I decided it was time to add the Berry Pencil Skirt to my wardrobe.  The print  is just the best. I adore the scalloped hem and the blue pocket/trim detailing. It's lovely quality; a structured design while maintaining flexibility. There sure is a lot going on in this outfit and I can't quite believe that of all the items in my wardrobe I chose to pair chevron with this skirt. But I love creating combinations which are unique. I wanted a thin top so it wouldn't look bulky under a pencil skirt and this chevron design just happens to be very slim lined. Chevron is a great print, I should really wear more of it.
As soon as I paired the two together I knew this would be the winning combination.

I love chevrons, the skirt is beautiful and the shoes are really pretty (they remind me of men's spats for some reason!)
The handbag is also pretty! Wow, nice of her to lend it to yoU!x

Oh man these prints look so awesome together! I bet that chevron print shirt looks good with so many things. I'm loving the pretty colors in your skirt too. What a great classic bag you got to borrow too.

The print on your Pho Sizzle Threads Berry Pencil Skirt is very pretty, colourful, and eye-catching in combination with your chevron zig zag top. It's a lovely outfit. Congratulations in advance on your admission as a lawyer tomorrow!
