I'm going with my current favourite skirt: the Heather skirt (named after my generous co-worker who gave it to me, bless her heart). Reason: it's a neutral (brown with a thin black pencil stripe and fine texture) and it's a classic shape (pencil skirt).
Easy to match stuff with it:
That pose makes it look like I have no bum. Ha! Oh well.
I wanted to play up the black pinstripe in the skirt and mix black and brown, then pop them both with a bright colour: blue. Add a funky neckace, brown fishnets and my fab Fluevog Listen Up! Ivanna shoes, and I'm ready to go.
