This has to be one of my favorite outfits…EVER. You know when you have that perfect outfit and you wear variations of it over and over, this is that outfit for me. I’m s glad I’ve held on to this vintage thrifted bell skirt that I thrifted over 7 years ago from Time After Time Vintage in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I’ve worn it at least 3 times a year and it was less than $20! I wore a variation of the outfit last week to the Jean Paul Gaultier Interview and Exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. I thought if I was going to the museum I should wear my most extravagant piece of clothing which is this vintage bell skirt.

So I have been dying for one of these Charlotte Olympia Book Clutches. Really all of her accessories are so quirky and fun but insanely expensive. I only own one pair of Charlotte Olympia Shoes and I worked a second job to afford them. Well, a few weeks ago I was rummaging through the knick knacks at Marshall’s and came across this novelty box. I knew immediately I wanted to use it as a clutch and it works perfectly and for only $5 its a serious fashion STEELE when compared to the Charlotte Olympia clutch. This kind of midi length bell skirt is apparently whats happening in fashion right now. I am still lusting after a Tibi Skirt similar to this one but definitely have to wait for the sample sale. The best way to wear a bell skirt is to dress the rest of the outfit down, with a denim jacket or a simple tee shirt.
