Green pleats

This is my new thrifted skirt- $7 and a lucky find : )  Was checking out my local Salvo's store for old Levi's to turn into denim shorts and when I spotted this skirt.  It's rather big and I've had to wrap it around a bit and secure with a brooch but its 100% wool, fully lined and a beautiful Autumn colour- I couldn't resist : )

Wearing it with my TWO new Asos purchases, the leopard print belt and THE CLAW.
I couldn't resist a TWIRL...
Skirt: thrifted, Top: Sportsgirl, Shoes: Aldo, Belt and Cuff: Asos, Earrings: Diva, Necklace: gift, Ring: RhapsodyDesign
