Lacy Gallery Night: October 15th, 2010

Event: Gallery night

Outfit: Black tee: Old Navy; Lace skirt: Target; Boots: Aldo (gift from parents); Necklace: Flea market; Clutch: Payless; Tights: Hue?

Friday night was our third Gallery Night! I don’t think anything can top the first one, as it was the night we decided to live together and began touring apartments whilst enjoying free wine & cheese, but this one had its moments! Favorite parts included free mini-cupcakes at Milwaukee Cupcake Co., $1 tees at Brew City Promotions, the “Life” photography exhibit, dance performances/wine/scheduling 2 free lessons at Fred Astaire Dance Studio (which, um, is also terrifying to me), and enjoying appetizers & beer at Rustico’s. Love having a fairly cheap night out with my guy in our city!

This skirt purchase was obviously heavily influenced by Clare rockin’ it in Madison. When I spotted it at Target for $4, there was no way I could pass it by! I know that Emily went for 4 colors. I need to go back and return a Tucket for Target dress (much as I want it to be, it just isn’t flattering), and I definitely plan to go for more if they’re still on the rack! While in the dressing room I was envisioning this as a more casual piece—paired with knee-high socks, the new boots, and casual tops. But Gallery Night always feels like it’s time to bring a smidgen o’ sophistication, so I went for black & sequins. The skirt has already more than earned its price tag—also wore it for a little impromptu photo shoot tonight!

P.S. This was night numero uno with the tilt-shift lens! See Adam petting it lovingly below. I can see why the guy’s so smitten…gahhh he’s taken some amazing photos with it!

  1. Love the outfit. The colors look so awesome together and I’m in love with those boots!

  2. ah! i love new glarus!!!

  3. Yay for being skirt twins!! I love how you styled it with the black pieces and cognac boots. And I never tire of your pictures of food. Yummm…

  4. I’ve always loved your pics, but as of late everything you have been posting I’ve loved. Also, because I was an idiot for not buying that lace skirt sooner, I was also finally convinced by seeing so many cute posts with it. So done and done! I now own the skirt in gray. 🙂

  5. okay, what target did you find that skirt for $4!?! The Target in Brookfield still has them at $8. I’m cheap. I’d rather pay $4 🙂

    cute outfit!

    • I work in northern IL, so I stopped in Gurnee before crossing the border. Maaay check out the Milwaukee one soon (on Chase Ave)–will update you 🙂

  6. This makes me want a lace skirt!!
