    Belle, this is my pressing question for the day. In your 2 out of 3 rule, what color tights do you sandwich between a camel skirt and light brown/”cognac” boots?

    ebb: either no tights or nude small weave fishnets.

    How did you know that I was in the market for a camel wool skirt? timely

    I just bought this skirt and the matching jacket. I got compliments the first day I wore it, but the skirt wrinkled pretty badly in the front, and it was VERY noticable–more so than my black version.

    H&M also has a similar camel/”beige” skirt currently for around $29.95 I believe. I bought it two weeks ago and I love it! The fabric is very soft and the skirt is well-made, with clean lines. Also it doesn't crease easily through the day and is very flattering.

    A number of people who follow J Crew Aficionada (JCAs) feel the quality of this skirt has gone down, even compared to this year's version. I actually liked the sterling skirt (a little more A-line, online only) in same color a little better, but I already have so many pencil skirts so that may be why I'm leaning toward a slightly different shape.

    I love J. Crew pencil skirts, but I too get nasty wrinkling across the front every time I wear them–to the point that I have to get them drycleaned before they're actually dirty, just to get the wrinkles professionally steamed out. And that's even when I'm wearing a size that's a tad too big for me (I'm between sizes, and haven't had the skirt taken in yet). Anyone know of a decent-quality brand that's less prone to this?

    It's actually $17.95; even better!
