Black Pencil Skirt ~ Some Thoughts from Gail Carriger


I've owned so many black pencil skirts over the years, Fashionable Reader. I would almost think it more a staple of my wardrobe than any other item of clothing.

My current one is the black pin strip fish tale. I think I picked up from Ross or the like. My only concern with it is that the waistband isn't really high enough for vintage.

Genius are evil quote shirt can be found here.

But everything else about it is so perfect I haven't yet been able or inclined to replace it. (I am always on the hunt for the perfect black pencil skirt.) It packs well, has a bit of stretch to it, has the ribbon detail and fish tale to give it something more.

Gail Carriger In A Steampunk Bow Top & Black Pin Stripe Pencil Skirt at ConFusion, Detroit


I recently returned from Confusion, a lovely little convention on the outskirts of Detroit. My first outfit was a new one for me, I pair an old pin stripe fish tale pencil skirt with a top I usually wear under steampunk stuff.

I put on vintage black gloves (similar $40), a cream headband flower, black purse (no longer avaiable, but I love the Lux De Ville purse line), and my grey and black Via Spiga cut-out spectator derby pumps. (Want more on how I came by this description? My favorite post on the fine art of Oxford shoe identification.)

 I'm not sure about this outfit. I feel that the shirt untucked isn't flattering yet the skirt isn't high wasted enough to tuck or wear with a vintage sweater. I won't be getting rid of the shirt, for steampunk reasons, but I'm not sure about keeping the skirt. Much as I love it, I just don't wear it very often. No mater what the case, I won't be wearign this particular combination again.
