First up, my Gap skirt from a clothing swap about 8 years ago. I snatched it up because it's a size 6 yet it fit. We know by now that I am not a size 6 if I hope to get out of my clothes without divine intervention but it's still nice to have a mislabeled piece around to boost the spirits. Here is how I've worn and photographed this skirt in the past:
Tribal top $2.50 Hope Missions Bargain Shoppe
necklace gift from my roomie
Don't hate me because my size 6 skirt looks great with all other patterns.
Next up, one of my early VV finds - the one and only $4.20 conversational-print elephant top! Some previous stylings...
Hard not to notice it's all soooooo neutral. So today, I reached for a ponte knit cobalt skirt to add some colour!

This was the perfect outfit for a full-day workshop today on tech stuff: business casual yet creative yet stylish yet comfortable.
A good pencil skirt like this hugs your curves without being restrictive.
Old pieces + new pieces = *totally* different look. Right?
Are you thinking what I'm thinking???
If I wasn't in my pajamas, I'd try the size 6 skirt with the elephant top.
With a wide belt, obvs.
