OOTD: (g)ruched skirt.

OK. That is not how you spell her Etsy name (it's gruhche), but it was just too punny to pass up. Sorry folks.

As per expected, I'm in total lust over this skirt. It's a beautiful tulle over a knit body-con skirt and is the most amazing cream color. And again, I'm finding a lot of ways to style it... I totally recommend one for everyone. That is, if you're ok with the super-crazy-body-hugging clothing. Because nothing is getting hidden in this baby, whew. Here are some of my stylings (again, PICTURE OVERLOAD follows).

 
  
 
1. Pretty casual. I think the fun pattern and colors on this top make the skirt a little more casual. Although, it's not really a casual skirt. Could be paired with my fave denim jacket (heh) for the afternoon and then worn as is for the evening. 
Top: Express
Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors
Necklace: Nordstrom BP jewelry

  
  
  
2. Sexay. The lace + tulle combo definitely says "nighttime" to me and would be gorge for dancing and drinks. I spiced it up a bit with the edgier shoes. 
Top: Free People lace top
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Necklace: Express, ages ago.
  
  
  
3. Color! This is wearable tucked in or out and is a popular way to style for this season. Pair a loosey-goosey top with a fitted skirt and voila! Insta-spring.
Top: F21 satin top
Shoes: Chinese Laundry zebra hair wedges
Necklace: (top) EPIC apparel; (bottom) ModCloth 

  
  
 4. Copy cat. OK. I copied this idea from Coley. Heh. I like the striped idea, especially belted like this. But this top is a little too long (since it's a tunic), so I would ideally go with a shorter top. Still like it, though. :) Plus, it's definitely casual!
Tunic: F21 striped tunic (this would be better prolly)
Belt: Steve Madden via Nordstrom
Shoes: Circa Joan and David kitten heels

Faves? Dislikes? What would you pair with it?
