In looking at my handy-dandy tracking spreadsheet, I've just realized that every single time I've worn this blouse this month, it's been with this skirt.
Anyway, I last wore the blouse and the red pencil skirt together here with my orange velvet blazer over it. I previously wore them both together here (2nd outfit) - even the shoes are the same there! At least I'm wearing different black patterned tights every time.
here, with my barn skirt. I actually liked this simple blouse and skirt combination. I went with heavier accessories: my braided black leather belt, my rocker chick necklace and matching earrings (and of course, a finger party).
Hey, if it works, it's all good.
Sadly, this red pencil skirt is not going to remain in my wardrobe after this capsule. It's become a wrinkle-monster, and I spilled some salad dressing on it a few weeks ago, and haven't been able to get it out. And yes, I've tried Folex, talc, soaking it, washing it, spot washing it, corn starch. It's some kind of indelible salad dressing. Besides, it's photographing too pink, which means it has too much of a blue undertone and not enough of an orange one for my taste.
I'm kind of bummed. I thought my red vintage suede pencil skirt (from my March capsule) was It, but it unzipped on me every time I sat down. Suede or possibly wool is my ideal composition, and pencil is definitely the cut, though, so I'll keep looking at the thrift/consignment stores.
The search for the perfect red pencil skirt continues...
