This purple skirt is my most treasured item in my closet. I have had it for thirteen years and I still feel like the "cat's meow" (my mother's terminology) every time I slip it on. I acquired it during my days of working as an assistant buyer at Calypso and have paired it with everything from a crisp white wrap shirt to a black cashmere turtleneck to tall high heeled boots to simple pumps. When the weather begins to get a little nippier, I usually couple it with a cropped black wool bracelet sleeve jacket and long black gloves. This season, I'm thinking about shaking things up a bit and throwing on my black quilted moto jacket over this ensemble with these black booties. I love how this piece is so classic yet I can infuse trends year to year to give it a modern edge.
