Almost two years ago, when I was in London, I stepped into a magical store called & Other Stories. I immediately fell in love, but at the time I couldn't afford anything in the store. After arriving back home, I thought I would order something off their website, but alas, they didn't ship their products to the US. I kept waiting, and it wasn't until recently when they finally started a US site (I have a post about it here). I had forgotten that they opened a store in New York, so when I was there last month I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon one! Of course I wanted to buy the whole store, but I decided to just start with this amazing skirt. I've been obsessed with two trends recently: neoprene and the midi skirt length; both of which this skirt has. It's also amazing quality, so I will definitely be purchasing more from & Other Stories! <3
Styling this skirt, I deciding to do some pattern mixing. First I picked the striped top, then I went for the leopard print ankle boots. Because the patterns are so different, and I have the skirt separating them, I think they work incredibly well together. I added my white leather jacket that I picked up at a small boutique in Paris and this new purse that I bought at Zara on my recent New York trip. Finally I put on my purple lipstick because it had just been too long since I had last worn it.
