Outfit Idea for that Sale Item: 1980s red silk skirt

Today's sale item is a gorgeously intense red silk skirt from the 1980s designed by Flora Kung.  A silk skirt is such a nice luxury item that makes the perfect workrobe staple. I myself took this skirt out to work a few months ago when I had a "day job."  But a silk skirt as a playful weekend staple? You bet. Thinking of how to mix up items like this will be keeping my mind busy for a bit. How do you mix up your wardrobe?

Also, trust me when I say that I know the pairing of red, black, and gray is a bit expected.  Personally, though, I love the combination of colors and will always be drawn to putting these together.
