Sometimes, when I find things at a super low price, I just can’t imagine my luck that others would have passed it over. The other day, when thrifting with my dear friend, I found this lovely watercolor/petal/fairy/whimsical skirt…for $4. Stop it. $4? Where am I not going to wear this whimsical fairy skirt?! This skirt got quite a few comments, mostly relating to how whimsical the skirt is. I really couldn’t agree more. It’s a fairy woodland wonder skirt and I’ll be sporting it whenever I can. Hmm magic fairy skirt….fashion life metaphor…am I reaching to say that this skirt is a reminder to carry a little whimsy and magic with us where ever we go? I certainly will take as much magic and whimsy with me as I can. Never know when you might need it.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) When I am wearing a statement top or skirt, I tend to either further dress it up or dress it completely down. With this outfit, I went for “dress it up” when I added a striped top, herringbone blazer, and rhinestone necklace. Conversely, an option would be to completely dress it down by adding a plain black sweater- perhaps a cable knit sweater. Another way to dress it down would be with a jean jacket and tank top or t-shirt. There’s no wrong way to dress up or dress down a statement piece as long as you stay consistent with either dressing it up or down. I generally love to just go all out, personally!
2) I was wearing skinny jeans when I thrifted this, though I would highly recommend wearing leggings when thrifting for skirts and dresses in order to check for proper fit without the bulk of jeans! The skirt is a tiny bit loose, but with the striped top tucked in, it ended up fitting perfectly. Additionally, I think this skirt may have been overlooked as a “summer skirt,” but with leggings, you can see right away that it can serve as a cooler weather piece as well. I took a risk assuming this would be the case despite the fact that I was wearing it with jeans when I tried it on, but it ended up working out!
Anyone else loving whimsical pieces this fall? Find a favorite piece while thrifting or huntressing?

Great find! I’ve never thought of wearing something like this, but I have now and it looks great! Question how often do you go shopping to find such good deals?
I’m concerned about answering this and ‘fessing up. HAHAH! Okay okay, I probably go once a week, sometimes every other week. Living downtown makes it really easy to pop in somewhere and do a quick scan to see if there’s any good deals.
WHIMSICAL – the absolute perfect word for this pretty skirt! Great find and ridiculously AMAZING price!!
how fun, and yes–very whimsical. I love it with the stripes.
