The 1940s & a fashion genius called Christian Dior left an extraordinar legacy to the fashion world, while a small part of it was a simple cut, tight and narrow skirt going just over the knees: the pencil skirt. Pencil skirts are one of the classiest clothing items for me, a must have in a lady's wardrobe, uniting elegance and sex appeal in an amazing way! Would I dress up elegantly every day (which I obviously don't), I guess I would live in pencil skirts :)
When you need to dress up (interview, convention, business lunch etc.), but not sure if a suit would be too much (or just too boring :) !), a pencil skirt paired with a ruffled shirt, a knit top or even a plain white shirt accesorized with a statement necklace is definitely a choice you cannot go wrong with! Don't ever think of going for any other shoes than sexy high heels, unless you're 2m tall :)
Attending a wedding of dear friends at the civil registry office, was the perfect occasion to slip into my grey Esprit pencil skirt, pairing it with a knit Ziggo top and high heeled Oxfords. The oversized pearls gave the whole outfit a little playful touch, just like my carrot red hair! I had a slim brown belt prepared for this outfit, but forgot to put it on in the rush of being on time...
