Last Chance Wool Skirt

I finally got to wear the wool skirt I bought at Last Chance late last spring. This is actually a revised version of what I ended up wearing, as my morning attempt was a MASSIVE fail. Well, just the upper half of my body was a massive fail. I'll explain.

I thought this skirt would be perfect with simple, fitted, white button-up shirt. Earlier this month, I bought one that I thought fit the bill. Nope, didn't work. Once I got to work, I saw that the shirt was too ornate for the skirt (too much ruching, buttons were kind of a yellow-ish color, etc.). And the collar didn't lay right. Needless to say, there are no photos of that version of this outfit.

  • Subtly patterned Anne Klein tights ($7 at Ross)
  • Nine West platform pumps with patent tip ($25 at Ross)
  • rando wool skirt ($5 at Last Chance)
  • Simple Old Navy cotton top ($10)... not the ideal top but it's better than what I had on earlier
  • Faux leather and elastic art deco belt from Salvation Army ($2 plus about $10 to repair it earlier this year)

This reminds me - I went to Last Chance on Saturday, and your friend who works there said that she misses seeing you, and that she also misses the coffee you used to bring, so I said I'd pass on the info.

Aw! Thanks for passing that along! I DO need to go see Miz Stephanie and her crazy pink hair! (And bring her some coffee).

Did you tell her I was on a little hiatus from shopping for a few months as I re-gained employment?

See you soon, Laura!
