    I've been craving a bright pencil skirt as well, but $93 is a little too much to spend. Do you have a cheaper version you could recommend?

  2. Ellie says:

    I LOVE my hot pink pencil skirt, but definitely save it for days we're not in session.

  3. Shannon says:

    Caroline – I'd try The Limited and New York and Company for brights. If you're a 6 or a 10, this one is on sale: https://www.thelimited.com/High-Waist-Stretch-Sateen-Skirt/7103409,default,pd.html?dwvar_7103409_colorCode=574&start=3&ppid=c3&cgid=sale-skirts

    Thanks Shannon! Too bad I'm a 2– my size never goes on sale. ūüôĀ

  5. Amy says:

    What about the bright pink J Crew pencil skirt?

  6. Katie says:

    Here is the skirt Amy is talking about. It is currently on sale and appears to be available in a 2!
