BRO-CADE

These pictures were taken over the weekend but due to a crazy work week with 12-16 hour days I've been unable to blog.  It also means that I haven't had time to go to the gym and prep my beach bod. If worst comes to worst I'll just do this.

Anyways, I didn't plan on buying anything from the Marni for H&M collection just because I found their price point to be quite high and the quality to be average.  The only reason why I got this gorgeous brocade skirt was because it was 70% off. The pleating design is pretty unique and done so well! Plus, it creates volume giving me the the illusion that I have a butt when in reality my body resembles more along the lines of a pubescent teenage boy.




Shirt- BCBG // Skirt- Marni for H&M // Shoes- // Bag- Aldo // Necklace- Aldo

  24. the skirt is very pretty. I didn't buy anything from the Marni collection either because.. there is no H&M in ottawa. #loser #foreveralone

    ReplyDelete
  25. hahah at the comment above me, "#foreveralone". anyways, i totally agree with the whole h&m line. they have some reallyyy pretty pieces, but it's just so darn expensive. if i could afford that, i wouldn't be shopping there obviously haha. but really great find! i love the pattern and that shiny material

  26. That skirt definately seems like a good buy, can't go wrong at 70% off, designer collabs definately get pricey. I love the shoes you paired it with and the ombre effect on your nails, the whole outfit works seemlessly!!
