While driving home from an appointment last week I was stopped at a red light that was taking its sweet time turning green. Overly engrossed in my lip syncing to Whitney Houston's "I will Always Love You" I happen to look over at a store window and glanced at a beautiful mint dress encircled at the waist by a wide braided brown belt. The car behind me honked and I hit the gas but the image of that dress stayed with me all the way home. In my mind I was already making plans on going back to purchase it. The next day standing in front of the pretty mint day-dress with a price tag of $540 I decided that I could recreate the look for far less. I paired this gorgeous skirt (showed it to you here along with the ring) with this pretty blouse I purchased recently at Zara. The brown belt was a great find at F21. This is what I came up with and I am far happier with my version and its much lower price tag.

BLOOPER: I tend to put on my skirts just like my pants, i.e. zip them in front, due in large to lack of dexterity, and then turn them around. That's what I did today; zipper in front... Didn't dawn on me that I had been wearing the skirt like this until later when I got home and reached behind my waist to un-zip the skirt and the zipper was still in front. Oops!
