I'm Loving...Paper Bag Waist Skirts and Metal Accents

I was recently browsing at Bendels when I came across something that was SOOOO not me, but so gorgeous. A HOT PINK Graham & Spencer satin paper bag waist skirt. Unfortunately, the price tag ran somewhere in the 300's and I was unwilling to add even MORE debt to my credit card.

There's just something so deliciously laidback yet so fashionable about a paper bag waist skirt. It almost looks homemade and thrown on without a second glance, yet those who know the runways know better than to underappreciate a paper bag waist.

Worn with a slouchy white tank and ankle boots, the look is punky and hip

I'M ALSO LOVING... the comeback of 80's punk studs. Paired with soft colors and materials, the look is fresh and modern with just a hint of sass.
