wishlist - color on the bottom


















































1. 3.1 Phillip Lim - wool pullover (via mytheresa, here)
2. 3.1 Phillip Lim - sequin accented knit pullover (via mytheresa, here)
3. Versace - flared wool mini skirt (via Net-A-Porter, here)
4. Thakoon - wool blend crepe skirt (via Net-A-Porter, here)
5. Reed Krakoff - 'burnished bridle' bag (via farfetch, here)
6. Saint Laurent Paris - classic tuxedo pump (via YSL.com, here)

Ah, it's so easy to just throw on a black pencil skirt and walla - ready for work. But sometimes color is good, and sometimes volume is more fun. So here are some ideas I had for ways to add some of those two details, while still looking work appropriate. The Versace and the Thakoon numbers are both skirts I could see myself wearing forever, would they be mine, and I'm on the hunt for some inexpensive alliteratives...  Any ideas on where I should look? xx
