Outfit: Breaking all My Rules

We all have fashion "rules" right? 
Things we say we will NEVER wear or never be caught dead in. Or maybe just trends we thought we are too old/young/wrong body shape/etc to pull off.

Wearing a high waisted skirt with a bandeau bra is definitely out of my comfort zone. Mostly because I knew I was wearing a bandeau bra as a top, but I never thought I'd be so daring at 34 years of age.

Here is my breaking all my rules look:

Bandeau: Shop Frankies, Skirt: Rachel Zoe Collection, Shoes: c/o Just Fab, Bag: Michael Kors, Cuff: Hive & Honey, Necklace: Forever 21, Chain Bracelet: T+J Designs, Watch: Fossil, Ring: Lili Claspe, Earrings: Just Fab, Lip Color: Rose Blossom by Bobbi Brown 

I am happy to announce I did not break one rule. That is the pay full price for designer items rule. ;) 
This skirt retailed last year for $525. It's 100% silk and 100% amazing....but I can not afford that price tag.
Thank you Piperlime for your lime tag sales! 
This beauty was on clearance (no returns) for $130 then I used my gift card bonuses for frequent shopping (thank you again Piperlime for letting people use more then one at a time) and finally checked out spending only $85! 
That my friend is a steal! I had it altered as it was about 5 inches too long on me, but now I am one happy camper! 

Do you ever break your fashion rules or find yourself in something you thought you'd never wear?
