Milly Phoebe Tripe Chain Skirt in Cream - Snagged at Neiman Marcus for $150 (Retail: $366)
Marc by Marc Jacobs Plaid Metallic Sweater in Navy - Snagged off Shopbop.com for $68.40 (Retail: $228)
This outfit was inspired entirely by Chanel. I spotted this sweet Milly skirt on the sale rack at Neiman Marcus in Denver and right away it reminded me of Chanel, but at a much more reasonable price. I was so happy when I saw it was my size so I tried it on right away. I really love that it is tweed and it has the fabulous chain detailing. This is only my second piece by Milly, but I can tell I am getting addicted. Milly items are so cute and feminine. The first item I ever bought by Milly was this poodle sweater that I wore on the blog a couple weeks ago. When I first got the skirt I was thinking about how adorable it would look with the poodle sweater I had at home, but then I decided to spice it up and try something different. Next time I am definitely going to wear the skirt with the poodle sweater for an all Milly outfit.
This Marc by Marc Jacobs sweater vest had been sitting in my closet for a while and I had only worn it once before over a year ago with a white button down underneath. I like the preppy vibes of this sweater and it was quite the snag off of the Shopbop website. It is made of silk and cashmere, one of my favorite blends. Anyway, I had recently pulled out this Marc Jacobs sweater because I wanted to revive it with a newer item so I put the Milly skirt next to it and it was destiny. Together, the skirt and the sweater really made a Chanel-esque outfit. My boyfriend really liked this outfit, especially the skirt and even though he doesn't know too much about fashion he even said it reminded him of Chanel.
For shoes, I wore my Prada black suede mary jane sandals. I am ashamed to admit that I own these shoes in wine and leopard pony as well. I got a great deal on all of them during Christmas sales though and they are extremely comfortable. I thought the gold buckle detailing on the shoes went with the rest of the gold in my outfit. I hope you watch the video because I talk about my friend Marisol, the first person I met through Fashion Snag!
