A Statement Skirt Three Ways…

Hello, hello!

Guess what…. we have rain in Perth!

Hallelujah, this means it’s finally cool enough to think about Winter Wardrobes. There are so many beautiful new pieces cropping up in stores, perfect for the Autumn weather and versatile enough to cross over into Winter.

So being the fashionista that I am, I have been slowly stockpiling items in preparation for the cooler weather and I’m so excited by what I have found!

Today’s post is ALL about the Faux Leather Pleated Mid-Skirt ( I’ve written of my love for midi-skirts here )

This particular skirt I purchased on-line from Sammy Dress, unfortunately it’s no longer available on there website but I have found similar skirts and will provide links at the end of this post.

I have paired the skirt with really simple items most of which are currently available in stores and each outfit is under $100! ( one outfit is just over $50 )

Here we go!
