Button down skirts.

While going through my daily blog reads, and looking through wardrobe remix, I have noticed a new 'trend' if you will. Button down skirts. Whether they are high-waisted or not, I have been seeing these all over recently. They are most commonly worn with shirts that have buttons also, to make the entire outfit look like it was meant to be.

For example, Irene Adler wears a navy button down skirt with a mustard colored shirt (both from H&M), inspired by the 'Gossip Girl' television series.

Piksi wears a very similar skirt (if not almost exactly the same) in black from a store called 'Nümph'. She also wears this with a shirt with buttons at the top.

Of the two outfits, I have to say that I like Irene's better, mostly because I abesolutely love the color combination, and I adore 'Gossip Girl'.

The girl from Stylebytes.net (I don't know her name), wears a vintage button down miniskirt in this photo. She wears it with grey tights
and a grey shirt with the nice touch of a blue scarf.

These are only three examples of the many well-worn button down skirts I have seen around lately. The problem is, I have only been seeing them on people...not in stores. I really want one. I mean want. Like want really badly. I am going to try H&M this weekend, but I doubt they will have anything like it. If any of you know where to find one for under $20, please contact me!! I MUST HAVE ONE!!

Haha sorry about my little episode. I feel like the girl from Charlie and the Chocolate factory. But seriously, I need one of these skirts, daddy. hehe =]

I didn't really wear anything to interesting today, but here is my outfit from yesterday:

Yellow Undershirt: Wet Seal, $5
Sweater: Demonia, gift from Aunt
Jeans: Delias, $20
Flats: Marshalls, $20
Belt: Vintage Dior, from Grandma's closet

I don't know if you have thrift stores near you, but I would suggest looking there (I've found a couple that way). Also H&M probably has some.

Those skirts are really cute, and if you find one under $20 please share the secret. Nice outfit, the belt is so cute.

I live in Boston, not New York, but the best places (that I've found) in nyc to buy vintage are at flea markets and at various stores in Brooklyn.
Also, I'm looking for a button up skirt too!

I've been looking for some for a while too!
All I've managed to do so far is buy a couple of secondhand skirts and cut them up the center and put buttons..
But they never turn out as well.

Great blog by the way!
