Haute Hippie never fails to impress me with their mini skirts so when I saw this gold sequin skirt for sale at a pretty good price on Gilt Groupe I jumped on it. The fit is perfect and the quality is as expected from Haute Hippie. My collection of Haute Hippie mini skirts keeps growing and growing for a reason. I usually try to stay away from gold sequin pieces because they don't always mesh well with my skin tone. However, this gold sequin skirt was my chance to stray from my usual rules. This skirt itself is lined in silk and the sequins are not scratchy, making it a great buy. Something about the skirt itself made me want to dress it down with a business-like top complete with pin stripes.
I snagged this Reformation top off of Revolve Clothing with a discount code. It is 100% silk and has a racer back. I like the subtle stripes throughout the top. I knew Reformation was a good quality brand because I had bought their fly lace shorts a few months ago. The top doesn't disappoint. I tucked in one side and left the other side untucked to dress down the sequin skirt a little bit. I have seen others dress down sequins with striped tees, but I think the top being sleeveless and silky makes it a little bit different. Also, the stripes are not as in your face.
I wanted to wear my new Charlotte Olympia suede sandals that have a unique gold platform. I snagged these during the Net-a-Porter sale. I wanted them at full price, but I am glad I waited. In one of the photos I am attempting to put a toe back in that escaped from the suede straps. I am particular like that. That damn toe likes to be different. Anyway, Charlotte Olympia shoes are always comfortable in my opinion and these are no exception. I like that they stand out from the rest of my all black sandals due to the gold platform.
