Leather sleeve trench, cobalt top, brocade skirt

This catalog photo recently popped up in my email inbox and while I don't have an exact or similar print in my closet, I created the same feel by combining a brocade skirt with a cobalt top. I finished it off with a leather sleeve trench and black accessories. I usually wear this (6 or 7 year old) skirt with brown or taupe pumps so mixing it up with black accessories makes it feel fresh again!
