10th Commandment: January 11

Jan 11, 2013

I love a nice pencil skirt, Lord knows that I do.  But a woman cannot live by pencil skirts alone.  

Sequin miniskirts are a good option if you’re looking for something to wear to a party other than a dress.  I would pair it with a sleeveless silk shell or a gray silk blouson top for a fresh look.  Or if you’d like something modern and sleek, try a tank with a sharp cut.

Plus size? This is the closest skirt I could find.  It’s $25 and has a flapper feel to it.

Elected Official

Embellished Dreamcatcher Skirt ($189)

Hill Staffer

Gianni Bini Pelican Skirt ($109)

Paid Intern

Embellished Miniskirt ($59)

Please don’t pair this skirt with a pastel, plaid button down shirt.  I have no idea what they were thinking.

    Too funny that you posted this today! I ordered the Express skirt last week and it was delivered this morning.

    I did the sparkly mini skirt and blouson top combination for a party last weekend; it's such a nice change from the usual cocktail dress! I don't know how many sequined skirts one girl needs, but I'm lusting after that elected official version…
