Top: LOFT Lace Yoke Top sz XXSP  Blazer: H&M; sz 2  Skirt: thrifted and altered
Earrings: F21 (similar for $3.80)   Belt: J.Crew skinny belt

And here is the black version of the H&M; blazer. Please help me decide whether to keep the black or light gray! I’ve sworn off buying duplicates of the same item because I don’t want to be a hoarder…err, well, unless it’s Ann Taylor perfect pumps or this old factory ruffle shell that is a work staple in every color.

When I last went to LOFT, I actually went specifically looking for this lace and ponte pencil skirt. I saw it in a LOFT ad and fell in love. I was intrigued by the words “stretchy ponte” and “elastic waistband,”, as those usually translate into something petite-friendly. At $79.50 retail plus LOFT’s frequent sales and coupons, I was hoping this would be a cheaper dupe for the overpriced Ann Taylor lace skirt I’m coveting.

In person, the dark hunter green and gray design was really lovely, but the fit was too generous. A 00P was large and boxy on me, completely unlike it’s sleek and fitted Ann Taylor sister. Also, I wish the ponte lining did not stick out past the length of the scalloped lace.

Readers – Did anyone else try on this lace skirt? How do you think it compares to the (pricey) AT one?
