Well. Turns out it’s Sally Secretly Longs to be Rachel Weisz Week this week. First the star print, and now this. I guess that editorial had quite an impact on me. I really do love Ms. Weisz. Did you see “The Brothers Bloom”? Gah. Marvelous.

Anyhoo, due to 40-mile-per-hour gusts of wind, I had a few close calls in this skirt today. Worth it, though. And if anyone at the gas station got an eyefull while I was filling my tank, well, happy early weekend to them.

    sally you are so funny! I love reading your blog everyday and seeing what you wear everyday! you look gorgeous today and happy weekend to you!

  • That necklace post is one of the first I ever read on AP! I loved it then and love it now, so pretty. Now, if you could teach me how to make that bag.

  • Such a cute outfit! I’m in Minneapolis, too, and the wind is ridiculous. I’m sure there were a lot of free shows today 🙂

    Here’s another similar top at Old Navy – http://oldnavy.gap.com/browse/product.do?searchCID=68131&vid=1&pid=864809&scid=864809012
    I love it so much, I bought it in two colors 🙂

  • OMG, that necklace tutorial is awesome! And that could be the perfect use for a bunch of brooches I’ve collected but simply don’t wear often enough. I love making jewelry, so that’ll be a fun project. Thanks.

  • Whoah whoah. I wore an outfit JUST like this a few weeks ago, haha! Seriously, a-line black skirt, thin red belt, and black/white horizontal striped shirt underneath (except mine was short-sleeved). Great minds think alike! I didn’t have an awesome necklace like that, though..

  • Yes, I agree with Marie – we need a DIY on that fabulous bag : > Love the whole look, very — may I say it — French chic?

  • LOL – that is always my fear when wearing a shorter full skirt! I love the stripes – you look lovely my dear.

  • I adore that skirt! You always look so great in stripes. Now that teal bag, I need to come snatch from you (and give you all of your goodies inside of course lol)!

  • A beautiful and elegant interpretation of her look! The wind today was CRAZY, especially downtown, so I wore shorts!

  • I love the idea of Rachel Weisz as a personal Style Icon. And clearly those outfits (if a dress is an outfit) translate very well to real life! Plus I think I can reproduce outfit 2 from what’s in my closet, sans the turquoise bag. Win!

    The Brothers Bloom rocked, Rachel Weisz is amazing, and you pull off her look very, very well.

  • DeeDee

    darling! I am in loooove with this outfit and inspired to wear stripes and a full skirt tomorrow. so.dang.cute.

  • Eleanorjane

    Ms Weisz has a good effect on you, methinks! Have loved the past two outfits – very chic!

  • Um, HELLO, Rachel Weisz is also known as Mrs. Daniel Craig, so I’m guessing that quite a few of us would like to be in her stilettos. Even my hairdresser Richard has told me he’d fight me to the death for a chance at Daniel. 🙂

    HAHAHA! That’s how I feel about biking in skirts and dresses. I wanna wear this, I have to bike, whatever. Anyone who gets a little upskirt while I’m on my way to class, well, I guess it’s their lucky day!

  • TOTALLY worth it. This skirt is amazing and I love it paired with the top. Great look for you!

  • Major swoon.
    I think your hairdo takes this outfit to another level.

  • The black and white combi is always very pleasing to the eye for me. This one is no exception! Nice bag too…

  • I totally love this outfit, tres chic! I may have to copy you!
