A 50's VIBE

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Last weekend I was over at Redress NYC (fave resale shop) to meet Tupieta blogger Courtney. Whenever I go into Redress I never leave empty handed. As I snacked on crackers and cheese my eyes gazed upon this beautiful multi colored skirt. It's as if the skirt was calling me. I love color and I love a lot of it. When I pulled it from the rack I immediately fell in love with it and carried it around the store with me as I continued to look around for some more treasures. I took the skirt into the fitting room with me and when I tried it on it was a perfect fit. No alterations needed.

I just knew I was going to buy it until I started second guessing myself (I hate when I do that). "Are the colors too loud?" "Are people going to think this skirt is ugly?" I even had a 10 minute conversation with one of the shop girls on what to wear it with for now and for Fall.
When I brought it home, I just felt like it was giving off a 50's vibe because of the fullness in the skirt. All I needed was a pair of ankle socks and shoes to complete the look.  I am not a fan of ankle socks and shoes, so, I wore it my way, which was to let the skirt shine on it's own. So I decided to wear it with my short sleeve ruffled front top and my pink sandals (I know ya'll are tired of seeing them,but, I just love them) and a clutch that I got from Beacons Closet on 5th Ave. in Brooklyn. I decided to wear bangles on both hands and a pair of gold earrings that I got as a gift from
When I got on the train this morning for work, I got so many compliments about the skirt and when I went out for lunch a few people stopped me to tell me how great the skirt was. One lady even asked me if it was vintage. I told her no, that the skirt was actually from Isaac Mizrahi's Target line. Her mouth fell wide open. Just think, I almost let this treasure pass me by.
If you don't know by now, ReDress NYC is such a great store and I am not just saying that because the people are so nice and helpful or because they are in the best borough in NYC, BROOKLYN. Some of my favorite vintage looking pieces are from their store.

Be sure to check them out if you haven't already ReDressNYC. This is no promo, it's simply the truth.

You look superb and the skirt is to splurge for. Living in South Fla allows me to wear bold colors most of the year. I'm willing to break my stick to the budget commitment to have one too!
