High-Low Hermès, Wang, and Zara

"True style setters don't rely solely on their platinum AmEx to amass an enviable wardrobe. Rather, they count on sharp fashion sense that works as well at the Gap as it does at Gucci." - Harper's Bazaar
I'm always so envious of people who can easily throw together a sleek and chic outfit using a variety of pieces from a variety of sources, and I like to think I'm on the path toward being able to do this on the regular. This is definitely a high-low outfit if I've ever worn one, and I'm actually really impressed with myself. I still find myself looking at it and going "Damn, she looks good", and then promptly feeling like an idiot for complimenting myself. I have a bit of shame, after all.

The sweater, skirt, and shoes come out to roughly $100 all together (some items on sale). Meanwhile, the belt and the bag... well... you really don't want to know. I don't even really want to think about it. I'd much rather think about how beautiful and fabulous they are, not how much they cost... 


I was a bit apprehensive about this faux leather skirt from Zara when I first got it home. It's slightly below my knee and is not very forgiving in terms of any lumpy bits that may be present... but with the right underwear and a pair of heels, it's actually exactly how I hoped it would be. The chunkier sweater on top was a nice surprise pairing with the skirt. I think it works perfectly, especially with the slight tuck in the front to expose the buckle on my belt. Très chic, if I do say so myself.

Unfortunately there are now a couple of feet of snow on the ground here in my part of the world, which is not really conducive to this kind of outfit. I've recently purchased some soft wool and cashmere socks in hopes of perfecting the "socks with heels" look. Maybe I'll be able to pull this off after some practice (and when the snow situation doesn't require Sorels). Cross your fingers for me.

As is the case every winter, my outfit of the day options in terms of taking photos are greatly reduced - even impossible sometimes (beyond a crappy mirror selfie), so I hope you'll bear with me as I try to figure this out. I'm officially on holiday now, so I will try try try to resolve it. Stay tuned!
