J Crew and I are now frenemies

I have long admired this fuchsia pencil skirt. I believe Kendi Everyday included it in her most recent 30 for 30. But, seeing that it was from J Crew, I immediately put it in the category of way out of my price range. I have never bought anything from J Crew. Even their clearance rack is too pricey for my miserly shopping habits (I shop often, but I shop cheap). I consider it fate that with a friend I happened to go into J Crew (with no intention to buy) and stumbled upon this amazing skirt, in my size, on clearance. Even on clearance it was more than I would typically spend on a skirt. But it is a beautiful, well made piece of clothing and I decided that it must be mine.

So YAY!!!!!!!

And TA DA!!!!!!

skirt: J Crew clearance
shirt: Anthro clearance
cardigan, belt, shoes, necklace: Target
tights: gift (thanks sis!)


  1. this is one of my favorite outfits so far.

  2. I have always admired this skirt, and it's mustard-colored sister of course, but the fit of this skirt is all kinds of wonky on me!
    You, however, look adorable! Good find.

  3. glad you bought the skirt. you look awesome in it!

  4. love the skirt, love the top, love the outfit! total win in my book! and YAY for serendipity!

  5. I know what you mean about stores like J Crew, but sometimes a splurge on something special is in order. It's like this skirt was waiting there for you! It looks fantastic. I love it with this black and white embellished top!
