I'm not much of a shopping guru blogger. I don't usually link to my purchases, and I'm such a bargain driven shopper that what I buy is usually almost gone by the time I've tried it out. This is the case with the skirt I wore today, but I loved it so much I wanted to mention it in case it is still available in the size anyone wants. This is the Modern Houndstooth Pencil Skirt. As far as bold and striking and type 4, it is really the perfect skirt. It looked drop dead gorgeous today with a simple red sweater and my faithful black jacket from Talbots. The fact that I got it for $40 only made it more desirable as far as I'm concerned.
