My style has always been inspired by my mom and my grandmother. I still consult my grandmother on most things fashion. As well as take her shopping and browse the internet for cute online finds. At 92 years old, she is still one of the most well dressed woman I know, her sense of style has never faltered.
My mom’s style was rooted in my grandmothers taste, and some of my favorite pieces I wear came from her closet over the years. Going through her closet and playing dress up has always been one of my favorite pastimes and grew more fun as I got older. Now that I am at the age that she was when she bought most of these clothes we are similar sizes and I fit into most of her clothes form the 80′s and 90′s that are coming back into style. Lucky for me, she never gave or threw anything away.
For the past week I’ve become obsessed with checking trends for Spring 2016. Checking out Instagram and my favorite blogs for all of the beautiful outfits put together during New York Fashion Week has been inspirational. This is one of my favorite weeks of the year the outfits are perfect, from the street style, to the runway.
One of the items in my mom’s closet that I’ve been eyeing for years is this red leather fringe skirt.
Fringe is everywhere, not just trending for spring but also seen in street style. I’m thrilled about it, most of my online shopping carts right now full of skirts, boots, and bags, covered in fringe. I was so excited to finally be able to wear this vintage skirt which is probably older than I am. It still had tags on it from Bergdorf Goodman, my mom’s favorite store. I usually don’t wear red, being a redhead but this skirt spoke to me. Just the right length and very flattering, I paired it with another trend I wore to death over the summer. The off the shoulder shirt is slightly sexy and has a vintage feel to it as well. I balanced the outfit with ladylike pointed nude pumps.
