Today's Outfit: Featuring My New Francis Skirt!



Once again, I have WendyB to thank for hooking me up with my new Francis fall 2009 goodies! The mixed menswear pleated skirt turned out to be a little loose in the waist, but it was nothing a quick trip to the tailor couldn't fix. The wool fabrication is super warm yet light, and I love how the pleats in this skirt move and swish when I walk. I still haven't worn the sleeveless argyle applique shift I got in the same order, but I promise I'll post photos when I do! In the meantime, is it bad that I haven't even worn this dress yet and I'm already dreaming of what I'd like from the spring 2010 collection?


  • Turtleneck sweater (Jacob)
  • Skirt (Francis)
  • Tights (H&M)
  • Boots (Aldo)

P.S. By the time you read this post, I'll be making my way to Las Vegas! Lest you think the boy and I are pulling a Britney-style quickie marriage, rest assured we're not. This is an all-girls trip that MizzJ, her friends, and I have been plotting for some time. Six ladies, no men, and a whole weekend of fun ahead of us; we're bound to cook up some trouble. ;-)

  2. Very nice getup! Love how the skirt combines differing patterns: pin stripes throughout with a splash of checkered belt.
    Also, the boots made it a bit "rock".
    ** SIGH ** Love the fall!

  11. Yay Francis! :) Don't worry, I've been contemplating what pieces I want from the Spring collection, too. So far, I have narrowed my picks down to 8 different things... which will leave me broke, but looking fabulous!
