INSPIRATION MONDAY...Maggie Gyllenhaal

MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL

Hi, hoping you had a great weekend.  Fall is in full swing for the moment here so I decided to break the Labor Day rules and wear this skirt by Calypso.  I found it at  Goodwill for $3.99 this summer.  It's technically still summer right?  It has more material than a circus tent and makes you feel like spinning!!!   I didn't have a dress like Maggie's so I had to put a different spin on it.  This skirt is actually more of an off white and is 100% silk made in India. 

Today at Two Birds, sisters Megan and Nora are hosting Inspiration Monday.  You should get in on this.  It inspires creativity in  all of us.  It gave me a chance to style this skirt for future wear.  My blazer and Coach bag are also from Goodwill  totalling less than $10.00 for both.  My shoes are from Target  having chosen them because I can walk on the grass easily and they are high enough for the skirt to not drag along the ground. Found my thigh high socks at Marshall's, my cuff at Goodwill and my earrings were bought several years ago from a woman I worked with who made jewelry.  So, have a great Monday and stay inspired.

Love your take on the outfit. Absolutely amazing skirt, and I love the pairing of the decorative stockings.
I love your backdrop too. That is such a beautiful area and it makes for such a romantic, almost dreamlike feel to the whole thing. :)
Great job my dear!
