J.Crewing It

October 4, 2011

Something you don’t see on this blog often– a pencil skirt! I was spending a long (and particularly gloomy) weekend in the country and my stepmother gave me a ton of clothing. Free clothes! Exciting! So I decided I had to wear this suit right away. It’s Doncaster, which I’ve never heard of, but the fabric’s very nice. Wool/wool blend.

Wearing: J.Crew shirt, Doncaster suit, Banana Republic shoes, ken + dana necklace (sample), leopard scarf (gift a friend brought back from Paris!), Louis Vuitton bag.

      You might have to bite the bullet and take a pencil skirt to a tailor. It can make a huge difference and would probably only cost about $20 or so? Most of my suits have been tailored, this is a rare one that isn’t.

    Hi Alex! I learned of your blog through Lyddie.  That suit looks wonderful on you. What a cool stepmother! Pink & brown is always a sweet color combination. I love your LV tote! I have a speedy and adore it. You should wear more pencil skirts. That style looks great on you! I look forward to your future posts. Have a great weekend!
