Last Thursday I had the opportunity to go to The Container Store preview party in Milwaukee. I haven't been to many events like this so I was very worried about attire. As I have said before a skirt is not too dressy and fits in almost anywhere. Moto jackets can dress a look down or be removed if too casual. So I settled on my trusty moto jacket I got from thredUp last spring ($20 off code here), my favorite clutch, and a new skirt I just got in the mail. It made me feel so much more confident to feel like I could blend in no matter the level of formality. And, you'd never guess almost this entire outfit is thrifted!

  44. Such a pretty evening look. Is that skirt jacquard? It is gorgeous, especially with the fuchsia pumps and the black moto jacket was a great addition. How was the Container Store?
