The Ruffled Black Skirt: Day to Night

Soooo Workwear Wednesday didn't quite work out this week - sorry guys, I had to share my Lookmazing contest entry yesterday.  I didn't mean to throw y'all off schedule!  On that note though, I'd absolutely love it if you could help me out and vote for my look HERE.  As a plus, you'd automatically be entered to win a $50 gift card to Aeropostale.  It's a total win-win *grins*

ANYWHO, since I was lame, I did a fun day-to-night look today on SS to make it up to y'all.  I've partnered up with Storets and centered my looks around a fab ruffled skirt.  If you'd like to browse their collection, clicky here.
Skirt:  c/o Storets / Bag: Prada / Top: Talbots

TIP: don't be afraid to wear bold prints and colors on top when you're sportin' a solid black skirt!  You really can't go wrong because your skirt's, in essence, a neutral canvas. Go all out and throw on chunky jewelry while you're at it.  If my neckline was different, I would've totally worn a crazy statement necklace!  If you want to wear big earrings, try putting your mane up in an updo.  Topknots always look chic!  
For night, I swapped my blouse for a sexy faux-leather crop.  I threw my hair up. wore huge silver hoops, and carried a lacy clutch.
TIP:  experiment with different vibes!  I took a girly skirt and paired it with an edgy crop for funsies.  Unexpected combos are the best! Remember, style's all about taking risks.  Wear whatever makes you feel beautiful.  Screw what's "hot".  You can pull off ANYTHING if you feel confident.  That's the x-factor in my (humble) opinion.
Top:  Forever 21 / Skirt:  c/o Storets / Earrings:  c/o Mint & Lolly / Clutch:  c/o Mimi Boutique

PS.  Today's HauteDeals will be up today at 4:30 EST so check back later this afternoon.
