First of all, I want to apologize for any spelling mistakes. I suddenly can not remember whether it's "ea" or "ee" for just about every word. When did this happen?
I first saw the Ann Taylor Striped Organza Skirt here and thought, "Well, isn't that cute." Now, A Bigger Closet always inspires me with her very well put together clothes and really helps me focus on what I have already in my closet. I didn't have one of these though.
And Ann Taylor styled it so well. Go here.
Well I can style it too. I was thinking Springtime in Italy maybe...
They recently sent me a $50 off $100 order for making an in store purchase.
Sadly, I am not sure what the hell I purchased. Oh well.
So let's order the sucker. I ordered a size 10 and I am not sure if I should have ordered an 8.
Hmmm. Not bad. Still not sold on a chambray shirt (No one tell The Chambray Queen) because it just always feels so heavy. I have had this for years and probably have worn it three times.
Same styling but with the only other skirt I own...
Yes Emily, I have your sweater on and you will now have the "slouchy" look. Feeling frumpy.
I feel a bit flirty in this. The jacket helps tamper the skirt down.
I'll be in my office going over expense reports.
Now I remember why I seldom wear this shirt. Too much material. Got it to fit the girls but too big everywhere else. Sigh.
It's a cute skirt but just not made for my body. No amount of steaming, pressing, will get rid of the big bell shape. I need to stick with A line or pencil. It is going back.
On other news, I recently read in Hunter's Oprah Magazine....yes, it comes addressed to him :)...that since I am over the age of 45 I should only wear shorts 11 inches or longer. Do shorts come longer than 11 inches? Aren't those culottes, gauchos, peddle pushers, capris...pants?! Now they say if you have great legs wear (see here I struggled with "ea" or "ee") any length you want regardless of age. For those of different ages...35 and under you can get away with 2" shorts (not sure if I could keep my ass cheeks contained in those). 35 - 45 you can wear 4" shorts. 45 and older, BAM, straight to 11". Not sure exactly why, I'm not even a big short wearer, but this kinda ticks me off.
