MuhLissUh 's thoughts:

Maybe it’s the granny in me, but I love tea-length skirts and dresses. I think they also feel fresh right now because it’s a length so seldom seen over the past fifty years. This skirt may have been designed to reach the floor (my aunt, whom I inherited it from, is a good 6" shorter than I am), but I kind of prefer it this way. It’s schoolmarmish and retro, but I think the fan pleat and the heels make it a little more sexy librarian than octogenarian head mistress, no?

The shoes are from Payless, the gloves are from H&M, the glasses are my precious Ray Ban Wayfarer II’s, and the tote made of laminated Life Magazine pages was a present from an art fair. A half slip helps out with static cling, since the skirt is a polyester twill weave with permanent press micro pleats.

Although I’m sure I’ll feel differently when I’m freezing in Chicago later this week, I’m sure going to miss winter wardrobe planning when spring finally sets in.
