look, ma! i'm legal!

Yesterday I had occasion to dress like an attorney.  Or maybe what Gossip Girl thinks an attorney should look like, but whateverItotallyworeajacketshutup.

I reeeeeally need to figure out a better camera / lighting option.  Even I am getting annoyed with me and my poor photo quality.  

This skirt was a Christmas gift and its been sitting very forlornly in my closet next to all my other business silks and wool-blends.  Its such a pretty color and I love the gathered waistband (see what appears to be a "belly picture" - BITE YOUR TONGUE - below).   I prefer to tuck a blouse in with this skirt but this situation required a jacket.  

Blouse-y Silk Black Jacket - Banana Republic (Fall 2007)
Silk Plum Skirt - J. Crew (Winter 2009)
Black Textured Tights - Merona via Target
Black Suede Boots - Cole Haan via Nordstrom (Fall 2008)
Black Satin Headband - Ann Taylor
Gold Figure-8 Earrings - Christmas Gift
*I also wore an Ivory & Gold Cuff - Banana Republic - not pictured


  1. Very cute and very Blair Waldorf! Love it!

  2. clothes, jewelry, and make up. Fist pump!

  3. cute! the belt completely makes the outfit! i bought the J.Crew cotton spring edition of that skirt and thought about taking it back but i think i just need to find the right top!

  4. Love the skirt and am happy to see a photo of you in it. I think it looks great tucked in!

  5. Elastic waist skirts are everywhere lately, and I am SO glad. A girl needs a little give every now and then!

  6. Love the skirt! I feel your photo irks, I wish cameras would magically take mag-quality photos of my OOTDs too.

  7. I just found your blog and love it!!! what a fun idea!:) if I only could buy the items you wear! I'm only buying used clothing this year - its rough!

  8. I just love your updates! (hint, hint - more please!) I left you something on my blog.
