A Week of No. 2

While probably 80% of the nation is glued to their television watching the Superbowl, I've popped in "Meet Me in St. Louis" into the DVD player. Such scandal  =OP

I love pencil skirts. And I've developed quite a love affair with J.Crew's No.2 Pencil Skirts.


The skirt in a size 0 is perfect for me

And when I love something, I tend to be quite, quite loyal.

JCrew Pencil Skirts

The most I've spent on the skirt is $90 for the red, and the cheapest was $23 for the black (lucky find at the outlets)

And I've accumulated enough in the past few months to go through an entire workweek without repeating. I thought it'd be fun to try doing just that:

I doubt that I'd truly wear the skirts for a whole week straight in real life, but I will typically have one or two days each week that I'll throw it on.

And over the weekend, I found a perfect orange-red lipstick that compliments my skirt in Vibrant Flame, so that's probably the pick for this coming week.

I couldn't help laughing at these photos. Love the humor in them. Your outfits look very professional and classy. J Crew is opening up shop here in the UK so I'm super excited!
