I’ve seen the wool version of this skirt on many petites and the cotton version on Vicky of Vicky’s Daily Fashion. I have mix feelings about this skirt. I like the fact that it is different than a typical pencil skirt. Also, I am still on the hunt for a casual skirt after my failed attempt at Gap. I also like the way it fits on me. The elastic waist helps a lot. The length is also great for me. A 00P would have been too short on me. Continue reading..
What I am wearing:
Skirt: J.Crew cotton bell skirt - 00R (buy here and similar here)
Tank: JCP (very old) (buy similar here or here in XXS)
Cardigan: Gap ribbed waist cardigan - XS in baby blue (buy here)
Belt: AT skinny leather belt in burgundy - S (buy here)
Booties: BR Samira Sleek bootie (buy here or similar here)
Necklace: Lia Sophia (buy similar here)
What I don’t like about this skirt is that it wrinkles like crazy. I guess it’s kinda expected for being made of 100% cotton. The color washes me out. I do think $40.00 for a casual skirt is a bit too much. In spite of all the cons, I am still keeping it since I need a few casual pieces for spring/summer
I also picked up this cardigan from the same trip. Originally, I picked up this cardigan in the winter ochre. I loved the color so much that I didn’t even try it on in store. Big mistake! When I tried it on at home, the color looked horrible on me. For me, it wasn’t flattering at all. However, Kileen rocks it. My Mom gave me some coupons and a reward card, I ended up paying $6 bucks for this cardigan. Since it was so cheap, I went back and exchanged for the baby blue one. The material consists of 90% cotton and 10% silk. Hence, it does feel soft. I don’t love it nor recommend to someone who is smaller than me. It’s just something comfy to throw on for a casual look.
Are you ready for Spring?
