Forever 21 and Coach Lookbook

  Forever 21 top (similar in a print, similar here)  |  

Forever 21 Pleated Faux Leather Skirt (love these two similar and great price!  here and here)  |

Christian Louboutin Pumps  |

c/o Coach Legacy Leather Penny Purse  |

t+j Designs jewelry: Gold Chain Link Necklace (love and affordable!)  | 

Gold Textured Chain Bracelet (comes in 3 sizes, great for small wrists too)  |  

Gold Luxe Braided Bracelet  |  Luxe Pave Bow Ring to launch 9/4

A couple weeks ago I mentioned my obsession with the pleated mini, well I got this Forever 21 skirt as well as the Alice + Olivia one I’ve been coveting.  I love both of them for different reasons, but the Forever 21 skirt is a great budget piece for $23.  Asos would be the next place I would search for a great budget faux or real leather skirt and found these here and here I love.  

I’m not a stickler in following fashion rules, for instance I love mixing black and brown, gold and silver, and breaking the white rule (wearing it after labor day or before memorial day) and mixed my cognac bag with my black and white ensemble. I’m loving my Coach Legacy Penny Purse; I was in search of the perfect small cross body and this fits all my essentials.  They recently launched their Legacy collection; inspired by their archives, Coach has some fantastic pieces in a variety of colors.

Hope your having a great weekend, can’t believe September is right around the corner.

    Glad you got your pleated faux leather skirts – you look great in this one. And I believe all those rules should be thrown out the window. Love that beautiful Coach purse, you can tell even through the pictures how good the quality is.xoxo~Natasha Fatah~

    $23 is a good price. When I get my pre-pregnancy body back, I'll definitely try a pleated skirt like yours. Nice heels too. Love the red.Mom Fitness Journal | Girlie Blog Seattle | Cheap Makeup Reviews

    You're not a stickler for fashion rules, because you're so good at mixing them! Will have to piece these items together from what I have in my closet!

    I thought I had commented on this look because I have been admiring it for a while. LOL! I guess I didn't. Anyway, you look absolutely amazing in this, and I love the skirt! Love the middle of the street pictures, too! :)
