You're pretty if the sun won't shine

Top: Primark. Pencil Skirt: Charity shop (via Marks and Spencers) Heels: New Look.

I feel like I should either be hanging out with Victoria Beckham, or sitting at a desk on The Apprentice, in this ensemble. I say that, I've never watched The Apprentice (stop shaking your head at me) and Vikki may not really be that much fun to be about.
This is my first ever pencil skirt. Shocker I hear. Well yes, it saddened me too that I've spent many moons without one. But I'm that girl, with the small waist and big bootay. So pencil skirts really are hard to find that DO fit a dream. Believe me, I've spent many intimate hours in changing rooms, trying to squeeze my bum into a tight one, or hair gripping the waist on another.
And then came along this one. This £3.50 one I must add. Just in my local charity shop. Sitting there, waiting for me to home it. And I did. Because it fitted like a dream. A really soft dream.
I say it fits like a dream. It managed to get over my rear. Which in my eyes made it a winner all round. I also love how perfect it sits on my waist. Not too big, but still enough room to consume huge amounts of cheese.
I think I'll stay clear of the tubes when wearing it though. Because if anyone sees me from the back, they'll take one glance and think they've struck lucky with a seat.

  3. You look absolutely gorgeous! That is the loveliest skirt. I'm new to the whole pencil skirt thang too and am very conscious of the way mine makes me walk. It sort of looks like I'm trying and failing miserably to do the Marilyn wiggle?

  7. I think you need a job looking pretty at a fancy desk with an old antique telephone in the fifties, you dapper little thing. I have the same issue- waist and bum that just DO NOT MATCH. I've only got one pencil skirt for work and can't wear it on Fridays because of the necessity of mcdonalds breakfast. A worthy sacrifice, however xxx

  11. Sexy lady! I had a similar issue with pencil skirts when I desperately wanted one for graduation. Getting it over the ol' booty was always an issue! Loving this look on you, and what a bargain! x

  12. ohh hey pencil skirt, you look LUSH. I have a few that I wear to work but I never tend to wear them, my styles quite scruffy (even in the office) and I always feel a bit overdressed in them... they will have to come out in the summer though because all my other skirts are too short to go bare-legged in the office... the tattoos start to peek out aha xx
