how to wear a vintage chanel skirt

The boucle Chanel skirt.  Another great classic piece that every girl should have.  You can dress it up or down, and it stays timeless.  In this look, I’m wearing a vintage one (I bet you can’t even tell it’s vintage right?) from Socialite Auctions.  I styled it with a metallic gold pullover sweater and a faux fur coat for a (more…)
