I know I’ve shared my obsession with fringe on here before. More often than not, fringe pieces (like skirts and dresses), sell out before I have a chance to snag my size! This time I was on top of it though. I spotted this skirt last week and wasted no time in ordering it in both black and white, and in two sizes each just in case! Even though a statement skirt like this one is trendy, it’s also something that will stand the test of time. Not just because it is a solid color and a classic silhouette, but because it’s fun! It’s one of those pieces that will always put a smile on my face.
Something else that puts a smile on my face? Finding a steal. I’ve been eyeing this J.Crew shirt (also available here) for months, but just didn’t think it was worth spending over $100 on. No, it wasn’t that expensive, but I just couldn’t pull the trigger for some reason. That is until I walked in the new J.Crew in West Village and found this shirt marked down to final sale. It was an additional 40% off the sale price, making it a whopping $20 total. Hell yeah, I’ll buy that! While it’s not quite that cheap online, it’s still a great steal. Anything this cute and that cheap is always worth taking the plunge. A few other pieces I found in the J.Crew sale section include this classic leather tote (love the warm taupe and stone blue shades!), this long-sleeve striped tee, and this pinstripe swing skirt. Don’t forget about the jewelry!

Great minds think alike, this skirt just arrived on my doorstep today! For some reason, not on sale, it was half the price for the exact one on Neiman Marcus. You styled it beautifully!
In LOVE with that skirt!
