I wore this skirt with a denim shirt and these leopard shoes to a Talbots event at Tyson's Corner Center that I hosted earlier this month. This skirt is pretty fabulous; it looks vintage, has a great fit, fully lined, pockets and keeps its shape all day; it survived a work day at the desk then several hours at the mall running around the store and fitting room.  I wore this look last week to the office and loved the mix of primary colors. I know I'll be wearing this skirt this winter with thick tights and a cashmere or merino turtleneck. This citron color looks great with neutrals, but imagine it with forest green, burgundy, or purple.  The skirt also comes in many other colors, it was hard to decide which one to get but I chose this one because it's a color I love but doesn't look good near my face.  Gotta love shoes and skirts for incorporating fun colors without looking like I have the flu!

  1. Hi Alison, another question for you & the rest of the readers: can you suggest an animal print shoe of good quality that’s not hair calf? I am ok with it being leather but am (perhaps foolishly) squeamish about the other. Many thanks!

  2. I have a yellow skirt (mine is a summer skirt) for precisely that reason. No colour looks more vile next to my face. I think that is true for a vast number of fair skinned people. And then you can build so many colour combos around it.

  3. Great outfit! For reference can you tell what size you wore? I’m looking online and its hard to know regular/petite for a cut like that.

  4. This outfit just makes me want to say “tres chic!” You’ve got a lot of presence with this outfit yet it is very simple and uncomplicated. Winning combination.

  5. I love this look on you–you look cute, happy and chic. And I meant to comment earlier, your lipstick game is really sharp! I am sort of afraid of lipstick (makeup in general is a little intimidating) but you have found some great colors for yourself and they really add some punch!
