J Crew Snakeskin Pencil Skirt


OK, I get a little skeeved out by snakeskin prints. So when I saw this print in the No. 2 Pencil Skirt I knew it would not be making it into my closet. But, there’s no harm trying it on for blog’s sake, right?

No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Snake Print, Sz 6 – This is a wool/silk blend and fit TTS. The length seems a little long, more than normal. If I were to buy this it would be in a Petite 8 to shorten it up a little.
Blythe Blouse, Neon Kiwi, Sz 6 – Wow, is this bright. Even more so when paired with the Collection Cashmere Cardigan, in Neon Kiwi, Sz M.
This skirt is a pass for me. I’ll wait for another skirt in a print I prefer.
What do you think of this print and skirt?

    I am not a fan of the snakeskin either. That green is certainly bright. It looks great with the skirt, but I imagine it would be very hard to wear next to ones face. Great review!

    I am a huge fan of the snake print skirt! Since I seem to be in the minority, maybe I'll get lucky and get it on super sale :)! I think it looks great on you. I also love the bright tops on you. You look FABULOUS!

    Audrey – you look good in that green – I can't wear anything like that close to my face!

    I have the snakeskin skirt as you know and I really loved it! But if you don't like snakeskin, it is a definite pass! I loved the feel of the wool/silk – it felt very good quality as compared to the weight of the double serge wool skirts which I was looking at in the store!

    The fabric is fabulous, but I found the fit on the smaller side compared to the cotton one I had with me in the fitting room at the same time.

    I tried on the snakeskin skirt in my usual size 10 and it was very very tight across my thighs, so it was a no go. I hope I dont have the same problem with the new wool pencil skirts! Thanks for the pictures, I enjoy your blog.
