It's Worth The Closet Space - Fei Skirt

Not shopping has forced me to become more creative than ever in my closet.  Like pattern mixing.  For example, take this Fei skirt that I have loved forever...


I first spied it at one of my favorite stores and ended up getting it at a clothing swap.  It's graphic pattern and modern, almost origami like folds give a basic pencil skirt an uplift.  Yet it hangs, hardly worn.  I have had a hard time figuring out what to wear with it besides a black turtle neck, (or tee or tank.)  Maybe it's too unique.  I've tried a variety of colors and shapes in tops but it's been difficult to find something that really suits the feel of the skirt.  Until yesterday...

This silk Lil blouse happens to be a closet fave!  (I have a "thing" for oversized or voluminous tops...I might just be compensating for my own personal lack of volume on top.)  Anyway, this top once again proved to be the magic that this skirt needed.  Which also makes me feel better about keeping the skirt...it was on the possible Goodwill list.

What item in your closet works with everything?

The top looks like it was made for this skirt! The pairing is gorgeous together. Glad you didn't send it to the Goodwill pile :) Heather

What an amazing skirt. I can see, though, how it'd be hard to pair with because of its dramatic design. Nice choice here. You put together some beautiful outfits.

That top looks so amazing with that skirt {which I love BTW}. There are no words...

My closet is, essentially, a sea of basics; therefore, everything basically works with everything. :P
