GLAM TREND: The Pencil Skirt

We've talked about the pencil skirt before, and for good reason — I've never dressed anyone of any shape or size who didn't look fantastic in a pencil skirt. Lately, all the celebrities have hopped on the bandwagon, Glam Gals went nuts over the one on Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, and last week we saw it on Alexis in Ugly Betty. If you don't have at least one by now, that should be next on your to-get list.

I love pencil skirts! You don't have to be stick-thin to pull them off either!

WendyB said...

It's hard to go wrong with a pencil skirt...especially if you wear yours with a CLOWN SWEATER! MWAH HA HA HA!

G.G. said...

Cris - Yeah that one is smashing.

Lady N - quite right, works on all body types.

Wendy B - LOL, you KILL ME :P (Girls, check out Wendy's blog for the most hideous clown sweater ever, tehee!

WendyB said...

GG, that sweater is a work of art and I know you want it. Please don't be ashamed! We still love you.

G.G. said...

That sweater is a blight!!! I bet I will see it in my dreams tonight... nightmares :P

WendyB said...

This is clearly a case of the love that dare not speak its name!

I wish we could see more pencil skirts and less capris pants.
