Did you wear a little green for St. Paddy’s day today? This is one of the holidays that I think everyone likes to partake in. I mean really, who doesn’t like to drink a lot of green beer and tell random strangers to kiss them since they are “Irish”?
Instead of the green sweater I wore today, I would have liked to wear this gorgeous Michael Kors Pleated Crepe Maxi Skirt and with it I would have paired the Michael Kors Buckled Leather Shoulder Bag.
I am tall and hence I have the right body for maxi skirts. You have to be blessed with good height or a good weight-to-height ratio to pull off a maxi skirt. It is not for everyone, just like all pieces do not work on every body type (trust me, there are tons that do not work on me).
Right in time for the bold color blocking trend, this Michael Kors pleated skirt looks beautiful on the runway and on the model. I’d like to think that it would look just as good on me. Two downsides: the price is $1,195 and it is sold out at NAP right now.
Now on to the bag, which is of course the important accessory. I am not always drawn to white or cream bags, but when I see one that catches my eye, I typically start to swoon. That is just what happened to me with this Michael Kors bag. While his bags don’t attract my attention often, when Michael Kors makes a good bag, he really makes a great bag.
The gold buckled straps help break up the design and not make the two front pockets appear outdated, as they many appear on most bags. This bag is clean, crisp, and refined while the long shoulder strap allows a bit of a casual touch to the finished product.
This Spring you need to have bold statement pieces in your wardrobe and a nice neutral bag to pull the look together. I want both of the above pieces. Buy the bag via NAP for $895.
