Purple Poppy Party Skirt & Link Up Fun!

December 22, 2016

Hey Dolls, I found my New Year’s Eve party look!

Purple Poppy Party Skirt!

What do you think?

This fabulous skirt is from Purple Poppy, a contemporary women’s store and online shopping site carefully curated by owner and buyer, Connie Goggin.  The brick and mortar store is in Massachusetts, but thanks to the magic of modern technology, you can shop at Purple Poppy from anywhere, of course!  Purple Poppy carries high quality brands and pieces with great versatility.  How fun is this Purple Poppy Party Skirt?!  I love that it has a flattering fit-and-flare midi-length silhouette with this really cool metallic crinkle fabric!  The skirt looks perfect for a party, but would also look trendy and cute with booties and sweater for a more casual look.
