Top: Lands End Girls(!) Striped Tee, sz. Large
Skirt: J Crew Flair Skirt, sz. 4
Shoes: Pour La Victorie
L-O-V-E this outfit! After much waiting and hesitation, I finally picked up the J Crew Flair skirt during a 30% off promo. So glad I did! I really do think it's a super flattering length and shape. Like many other's I had to size up to a sz.4 in this. Because I don't really have a defined waist as it is, I might have even been able to do a sz.6. What gives J Crew? I should not be able to wear a sz. 0 and sz.6 all within the current season. It's called consistancy, people. Maybe the the copywriter from space loaned her dictionary to the sizing and fit people?
Anyway, it seems people either love the Flair or hate it. I'm in the love category. I wish they would make this in some ligher fabrics (linen or cotton?) in bright colors for the spring. I'd be all over this in a neon azalea color. True, if styled a certain way it definately gives off a 70's vibe. That's cool with me. I wasn't alive for the 70's, so it's new to me at least. Maybe it's the historian in me getting a kick out of wearing a "period piece."
