Then my very sweet co-worker Heather came to my office and gave me a skirt she bought and never wore! And it fit perfectly! What a nice thing to do. I wore it all day.
Considering this is Suzy Shier (a teen-oriented store, kind of like Forever 21 in the US), it's a really good quality (lined). I love the herringbone texture.
A shot of the accessories:
My lovely faux croc pumps, gold earrings and my mom's vintage chain belt.
I "liberated" the belt from her in about 1983. It originally had gold chains hanging down in a U-shape between each set of square links, and gold chain tassels hanging in the centre of each U. I left the little bits there so that I would always remember what this belt originally looked like. I removed the U and tassels around 1988 because they severely limited the wearability of the belt. You can see a little bit of one of the U chains on the left near the square link, and one small link from a tassel left on the O-link centred between the square links (it looks like a mark on the O).
