Marian said...

that is a yummy line up! im really into pencil skirts with awkward proportions in a Prada kind of way, from midi lengths to awakard a few inches after the knee. I think they can be so interesting when styled right but i guess they are a tad tricky.
happy wknd hun bun

Changing a little the subject would be a great idea to put Celine collection...the leather pieces are to die for. Have a great weekend!!

Love this makes me nostalgic actually. I used to have this fabulous tweed pencil skirt that I absolutely ADORED and wore all the time to it doesn't fit any more. Sadness. Lol.

I hope you're having a fab weekend! xoxo
