I am a woman, a black suit wearing, 30 something ball of fire, a Bronx girl, a jeans and t-shirt, large hoop earrings kind of chick, a bodycon lady fearing not a red lip, a heeled pump or a comfy pair of flats. Yes, that’s me. Like most women, I’m not just one thing; I am the sum of many and a peak into my closet reflects just that.
Which is why when I saw the Paris Midnight Pleated Mesh Midi Skirt skirt by Rue 107, I nearly fell over. I instantly visualized the multiple options it presented, and how I could easily incorporate it into all parts of my crazy life. From day to night, work to weekend, summer to fall, the versatility that this beautiful skirt offers is endless. So with that in mind, this week I decided to have a little fun and show you the multiple faces of Darlene via the Paris Midnight Midi Skirt. First up, the professional.
95% of my clothing needs to fit in somehow with my career life, mainly because I am at work most of the time. My closet, nor my budget, has the space for clothing that I’ll wear once in a blue moon on a random Saturday evening. Nope! So my first challenge was to see how I could wear this skirt for the office, and I must say it wasn’t much of a challenge. Due to its midi length, this skirt was perfect for everyday office wear. I paired it with a crisp white shirt, pumps and a sharp bag and I was ready to go. Talk about easy and effortless, but polished and pulled together.
Let me also add that this skirt is gorgeously constructed. The inset pencil skirt is fabricated from a spanx like material that held me in and tight. No additional shapewear needed for this girl. The midi mesh overlay was at a perfect length and a beautiful cut. The skirt moved with me while still making me feel covered. At an 18/20 I am wearing a size 2x.
Check back tomorrow for my second look, the vixen!
