Here is another versatile skirt. I came across this on Colette Patterns blog in a post written by Lisa, aka lsaspacey (her blog is AS I SAID)
I must try the little pleats on my next skirt. And isn't the trim on the pocket nice? One of my jackets this year will be this sort of thing - nice soft tailoring for a woman. While I'd rarely wear a skirt suit, it would be a good idea to own one. Both pieces work well on their own. And hey, if you need something a little more dressed up, a neutral suit can be festive (for a wedding) or somber (for a funeral) depending on accessories.
As I was looking at Steph's most recent post, it struck me how important it is to get just the right fit when wearing vintage styles. Just look at her!
From reading her blog, I know she has worked hard to achieve this fabulous fit. But to look at her - would you think she'd had trouble? Heck no! All you see is goodness! She makes it look easy.
Fit makes or breaks the look. Maybe that's what really appeals to us when we are transfixed by the clothing on Mad Men? Bodies look beautiful in clothes that fit well. And the bodies don't have to be standard size. The fit and the style over-ride everything else.
Those are my humble 2 cents today. Happy Friday.
