It's not only day three of my pencil skirt week challenge, but it is also my birthday and so I had to break out a fancy skirt today!
Once upon a time there was a skirt at J. Crew that I became obsessed with after seeing it in the catalog, but I immediately burst into tears when I looked at the price. It was never going to happen!!
The texture and shine is just fabulous, but at $400 it better come with a top, shoes and tickets to someplace fancy to wear it. I did the next best thing and went on a wild Internet goose chase to find a suitable alternative and one day, there was one. Not quite like the one I coveted, but it has great texture to it and I couldn't wait to wear it. With my high bun, red lips, and flats, I got a Audrey Hepburn inspired compliment. I'll take it!! Especially when I'm particularly proud of how big I got my bun to look. I'm determined to make it half the size of my head next time. Teasing comb, I'm coming for ya!!
