I enjoy looking at high-end clothing. Just to see the details. This skirt by Versace caught my attention today. No, I don't wear mini skirts. I'll let the 20 somethings do that. What caught my attention was the black stitching on the front of this skirt. Here's the link: http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod103500032&eItemId=prod100940004&cmCat=search&searchType=MAIN&parentId=&icid=&rte=%252Fsearch.jhtml%253FN%253D0%2526Ntt%253Dversace%252Bpink%252Bskirt%2526_requestid%253D18928
Really you need to zoom in and check out the stitching on the skirt. For $695.00, I think it would be very easy to duplicate the look of this skirt using decorative stitching on your sewing machine with a heavier decorative thread, then add some silver studs. I don't know it this would translate to an older woman's wardrobe but I really do like the detail on this skirt.
Hope you enjoy the inspiration.
