The Plaid Mini Skirt

Hello Fabulous Fashionista/o!♥ The Classic Californian here again. Thank you for still checking out my blog after a prolonged absence. The past couple of months have been hectic and overwhelmingly busy. And just when I got a little free time, there was always something to do. But now that things have kind of mellowed out and got some things sorted out, I am here to stay 🙂 I have so much planned out for this blog,  I am so excited to share with you all what I’ve got. So stick around.

The plaid mini skirt was very popular in the early – mid 1970’s. Correspondingly, this is one of the eras I find the most inspiration in. From the bell bottoms to the rock and roll scene and beyond, I have incorporated some trends into my personal style.

Here I paired one of my favorite black faux fur (always!) coats with a zipper body suit and heeled boots. {See the bottom for outfit details.}

This coat is not only warm but soft and fuzzy. It’s just so amazing I can wear it with pretty much anything. I wish faux fur coats and vests weren’t so daring. Yes this can be a daring fashion choice, but it’s awesome! Just as long it’s not coming from real animal fur.

For me this combo was great for those kind of warm,  kind of chilly spring days. California weather can be nuts sometimes, but hey I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else! #CaliGirl4Life

Interestingly, there’s a lot of history behind the mini skirt. I will be posting about the history of the mini skirt on Saturday! It’s a pretty fun read, please check it out 🙂

See you then♥
