Tee: H&M sz XS
Skirt: Ann Taylor Tropical Wool Pencil Skirt in Soft Pewter, 00P
Shoes: Ann Taylor Exotic Pump in 5.5 - on sale again!
While I was in the store, I also couldn't help but try on this cute swing jacket in a matching fabric. They had it in 0P only, but I was surprised by the slim fit. I think a 00P would actually be perfect on someone my size for wearing over dark denim or black suit pants. It's currently on sale here for $112.50 from $228, and still left in 00P!
Tropical Wool Elysian Jacket on me in 0P:
I also tried this jacket on with the matching skirt, but it was hideous pewter overload. I will spare readers from the pics.
The fit of the skirt in 00P is not perfect. As you can see below, on an empty stomach there is an inch or so of fabric to spare at the waist band. The hips are also not snug on me. However, this is the best fit I've come across right off the rack in a long time for pencil skirts...the silhouette is actually a true pencil (my biggest qualm with BR skirts) with the entire skirt tapering down at the knees.
I'm going to hold off on alterations, because my waist expands after each meal and actually fills out the skirt - scary.
