I have been stalking etsy for corduroy everything for a few weeks now, but nothing awesome yet inexpensive struck my fancy. I had this idea in my mind of a seventies type of skirt with buttons going down the front and an A-line shape, preferably mini-length. When etsy doesn't give me what I want, I go to Think Twice. God I have mentioned that store in my last three posts, I'm so boring! Anyway, I got this skirt there. It used to be just above kneelength so I just cut off a few inches and I love how it ended up looking! I don't think I'm going to hem it unless the fraying goes crazy, but I kinda like the messy look. Goes with my grainy pictures. Yeah, I'm going to act like that was an intentional hipster effect.

When I put this outfit together I was thinking about a streetstyle look that made the rounds a few months ago, it was this gorgeous, clean faced, long haired asian woman in a suede patchwork mini skirt, bare legs, brogues and a retro kind of purse, but I can't find the picture :(
No, wait, I found it, yeay! Oh internet how I love thee
So yeah, this skirt got my crave going. My skirt isn't nearly as eye catching, but I really love the shape, fabric and buttons. I just added some color and print with my top and tights so I still think the outfit has the same vibe even if I didn't copy it all the way.
