Skirt by Christopher Kane
Same and similar sparkle skirts:
I am a fan of mixing up the pieces in my wardrobe in new ways. It keeps things fresh and helps my pocketbook significantly. I love this metallic skirt and wore it many time during the holidays. Metallic skirts and lurex in general are still, and even more so now, very in fashion and I want to make sure I get as much mileage as I can from this piece.
The last time I featured this skirt it was the holiday season. The way wearing sparkles worked a couple of months ago needs to be altered for the season. It’s the end of winter (hopefully) and about to be spring. With the snow, rain, sleet or whatever else is falling from the sky I want to be cozy, but still stylish. Wearing a casual oversized sweater with this fancy skirt is a great way to embrace the transition season, staying warm, and looking stylish.
Casual sweaters and even sweatshirts are a great way to downplay a fancy skirt like the one I featured today.
The look I am featuring is a look that can go from day to night. You can definitely wear this outfit to the office, but it’s also great for dinner or a reception at night. …Or when performing live on stage at Songbyrd in Adams Morgan!
I discovered Songbyrd shortly after they opened their doors thanks to two of my dear friends, Lauren and DJKC. I have since attended a great party hosted by DJKC in the new basement music venue at Songbyrd. Definitely one of the more fun nights out I have had in DC due to the quality of music and atmosphere.
When I showed up this past Saturday to shoot for Politiquette, I was blown away by the brunch session infused with legit soul recordings. Many of them DC originals. I learned that DC’s Kevin Coombe of DC Soul Recordings also spins regularly at this venue. If I wasn’t sold already, that sealed the deal. The people, food, beverages, decor and most importantly music are all exceptional at Songbyrd. If you haven’t checked out this venue, a visit should be at the top of your list.
Lookout for two more posts this week that will feature the Songbyrd dining area and the listening cafe.
Special thanks to Joe and Alisha for their hospitality!
