Fashion has a way of looking back into the past then reinventing itself to fit the needs of the present day. For this fall, designers were inspired with the Baroque era (some 400 years ago) where excess glamour and opulence was at the forefront. Gold trims, brocades, detailed embroidery were some of the details portrayed for fall 2012.
Voluminous coats and jackets were also in full display. I put the two trends together in a way that would suit my personal style.
I got this gorgeous skirt from a vintage sale a year ago. The gold details and the pattern were so compelling that they struck a cord with me. The soft pink lace top works with the skirt without being too overpowering. I love mixing different colors with accessories, but here the shoes and the bag are just perfect. I settled on the chunky gold chain and brooch as accents for this look. :)
I had a lot of fun putting this look together. Thanks for stopping by. :)
