The moral of the story is this: NEVER give up on the Most Perfect Pencil Skirt. Much like a boyfriend or a really delicious cupcake, things like that will present themselves when you least expect them. And when they do, you better act fast!
Actually, this pencil skirt story is FAR from over. I see many more chapters in its future- some with bright floral tops, others with mary-jane-style heels, all with great style. And as for the wrinkles, well, you all know that I have a 45 minute commute, so every skirt I wear ends up wrinkled by the time I arrive. Fortunately, the iron is frequently warmed up by the time I arrive and a quick pass with it usually gets rid of the wrinkles. Unfortunately, I take my photos after I've driven to work and before I've had a chance to press my skirt. Use your imagination to picture it without the wrinkles. You can do it, I know you can.
