Pleated Skirt, Wrap Top, Dany Platforms - San Francisco Style Blog

This skirt really reminds me of an accordion. I discovered it while thrift shopping a couple weeks back, and the $3.99 price tag made it basically impossible to resist. It’s made of heavy wool, so perfect for a mild SF winter day!

    Nothing better than a great find. I’m also loving your purse! Quick question about the Dany’s, I’ve been on the fence with them since I first spotted them but was unsure about how the sizes ran. Would you say that they’re true to size?

    Laura Reply:

    Thank you! Yes, they’re definitely true to size. :)

    You look so cute! Love the gray and cranberry together. Such a beautiful color combo. I’ve never seen the Dany platforms in that pattern; they are hot.

    Gorgeous!! I love the skirt and $3.99 is sweeet (and i’m in junior high?). You scored on the Dany’s – I picked up the purple velvet and am just waiting to pull those babies out…hoping not to twist an ankle. hehe

    I’m a huge fan Jessica’s shoes, they are super stylish and not that expensive, and the materials are very nice! … Are those comfy enough to wear all day? Cause ir they happen to be, then I’m so getting them!

    Yes! The texture of these specific ones make them a little rough around the ankles (hence the socks), but otherwise they’re totally easy to walk in! And they are on sale right now too :)

    AH! youre so cute :) I like that skirt- the wine color is amazing. What Im really curious about though is your bag? is that glitter on the flap??? I LOVE IT! take close up pics of that please :D

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks, Maria! :) The bag is actually like a grayish faux fur… I will take close-ups of it soon!

    Love the color of that skirt! Nasty Gal had a skirt and a few pairs of JC shoes in that pretty wine color and I was dying for every piece! The picture of the shoes is a great shot and I love those little crocheted socks.

    I love the snakeskin Dany’s. I have the black ones and they are definitely some of my most comfortable platforms. I loooove that sweater.

  24. Pretty Shiny Sparkly 19. Jan, 2011 at 10:42 pm #

    Ooh, I love the Dany’s in that print! I have them in tan but I’ve been lusting after the black version. #shoeporn

    I’ve been craving those JS Dany platforms for a long time. I love how high they are, but the wooden heel makes a little more casual.

  26. simplychic 19. Jan, 2011 at 10:16 pm #

    i haven’t seen those platforms in that color. i like :)

    loving this look!! I just love pleats, still on the b=hunt for the perfect pleated skirt.

    And side note how are those shoes walking wise?

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks girl! The shoes are not bad at all. Since the platform is so tall they are easy to walk in — not wobbly or anything. And they’re especially comfy with socks on! :)

  28. Emily/TheLesserPanda 19. Jan, 2011 at 9:31 pm #

    That skirt is a really good find, it’s so classic!

  29. Lynzy 19. Jan, 2011 at 9:13 pm #

    The perfect way to wear socks with sandals! Oh, and nothing beats an amazing vintage find like that, love it!
