Tiptoe through the Thanksgiving Tulips

Skirt (Simply Vera, Kohl's); Blouse (Lafayette 148); Bag (Brahmin); Shoes (Circa Joan Y David); Horse Cufflinks (Beluga Home Studio)
I have so much to be thankful for, today and every day - big things, small things, every little thing!  In the fashion realmI'm thankful that couture designers like Vera Wang, Catherine Malandrino, Missoni and 3.1 Phillip Lim are embracing opportunities to collaborate with department stores like Target and Kohls to create capsule collections accessible by ordinary people on a budget!  

This tulip-print, tulip-shaped skirt is from one of Vera Wang's early collections for Kohl's (a steal for $11 on clearance, though I'd have gladly paid full price).  The bell shape and carefully placed pintuck pleats are hallmarks of her thoughtful construction - details that aren't normally found at such an affordable price point. Though I normally associate tulips with Spring, the rich colors in this skirt whispered Fall, and it seemed perfect for a pre-Thanksgiving holiday meal with colleagues.  

What are you thankful for in the fashion world?

Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
