Going a little grunge...

I've had this skirt for awhile and have wore it a lot this fall/winter but this is the first time i've been able to take a picture! I had wanted a plaid maxi skirt ever since i saw an outrageously expensive one by L.A.M.B, tried on one at Forever21 and put it back and then came across this one at Goodwill that fit me perfect! I love it when that happens.

To help offset the covered up, a bit grungy look i have going on i put my hair up (as much of a bun as my hair can currently make anyway), did up my makeup and added a pretty raspberry lip and a heeled boot rather than flat.

Black fringe scarf - H&M
Black faux leather jacket - Target
Black destroyed high-low sweater - F21
Plaid maxi skirt - thrifted vintage
Black heeled ankle boots - H&M
Lipstick - Mac "Rebel" (way more vampy than it shows here)
Giant Heart Ring - F21
Silver choker you can't see - F21
Black faux fur purse - Vintage

Thanks for looking! I know this style won't appeal to everyone but i felt really happy in my outfit today. :)

    This is a really cool outfit! I'm a huge fan of maxi skirts and I love how you've mixed a classic plaid with a leather jacket and fur bag- so unexpected!

    Oh, Nicole! I LOVE this! This is EXACTLY the kind of plaid maxi skirt we wore back in the day, but you have made it look so fresh and new with your scarf and leather jacket! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

    Nicole, I don't even like maxi skirts and I really love this on you! All the little details are so awesome (the faux fur black purse?! - I don't even like faux fur!)

  • Kirti replied 11 years ago

    I love this! It is an outfit I would totally wear if I was cool enough to own a plaid maxi :D

  • kellygirl replied 11 years ago

    This looks GREAT on you!!!

  • Marley replied 11 years ago

    As I was reading your description of what you were wearing I felt my heart speeding up a bit - the outfit just sounded so cool! And the pictures didn't disappoint! I love everything about this - and I don't even care for maxi skirts - but that large plaid is just amazing! You have such a playful but cool vibe to all of your outfits and this one is no exception!

  • lyn* replied 11 years ago

    Bazing! This skirt is fabtabulous on you!

  • AJ replied 11 years ago

    I really likey! When I read "grunge" I was expecting a messy look with lots of hardware and toughness. Your lovely outfit is more polished than tough. This is grunge that I can appreciate!! : )

  • Scarlet replied 11 years ago

    Wow! This looks fantastic on you!

  • goldenpig replied 11 years ago

    Wow, so edgy and cool! Love the mix of plaid wool, leather and faux fur. And how fab is that purse. You kill me!

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    Edgy, cool, stylish, I LOVE it!

  • Mander replied 11 years ago

    I heart this. This is just the sort of look I imagine with my ugly skirt. I guess what I really need is a leather jacket to wear with it!

  • cobaltblue replied 11 years ago

    Wow, I love this!

  • nicoleb replied 11 years ago

    Aww you guys! Thanks SO much for your sweet words. I cannot tell you enough how much i value the positive feedback i get here even when i know this is not everyones style. It seriously means so much to me. <3

  • Meredith1953 replied 11 years ago

    It looks wonderful on you. I am NOT a fan of maxi skirts on myself and would adapt the skirt to no longer then calf length, but on you it looks absolutely perfect! What a great plaid pattern and you teamed it masterfully with the jacket!

  • Lisa replied 11 years ago

    That skirt is super on you. You look so tall in this longer length of skirt. And I like plaid prints, I always think they are fun.

  • Debbie replied 11 years ago

    You look so fresh and current!

  • catgirl replied 11 years ago

    what Marley said! I love that you found a way to style something quite difficult and made it ROCK!
