J Crew Wool Pencil Skirt

I received my Wool Pencil Skirt today and am very happy but also slightly disappointed. I ordered a size 6 and the length is at least 3 inches, maybe 4 past my knees. Boo Hoo! I’ll have to get it altered. Being on the lower end of the 5 foot range in height I should be used to getting alterations but I just wish things would fit just right every time.

Here it is…

With the Dark Slate Frances Cami

Perfect Shirt – I really like this look.

“Altered” – This is about where I would like this skirt to be.

Now here’s my dilemma…SHOES! I can’t believe it. J Crew has it with the Spencer Patent-Trimmed Suede Mary Janes in Chalkboard (Gray). (And, I just sold some gray suede mary-janes on ebay. Oh well, they didn’t fit right anyway.)

So below I have the skirt paired with my Python Kitten Heel Louboutin’s and then with my Wall Street Louboutin’s.

I guess that’s a great excuse to Buy the Shoes!

    I love this skirt! I like it with the dark slate Francis cami and the wall street shoes. Next favorite is the perfect shirt with the wall street shoes.

    Gorgeous skirt and excellent photos. I wear this skirt with the pink crackle-metallic mary janes from last fall/winter, gray Fluevog Audrey heels or a cream pair of kiltie spectators from Anthro summer 2008. Shoes make the look, would love to see which ones you buy.
