I love old movies and old movie stars. This skirt reminded me of Betty Grable, so naturally I had to scoop it up, especially since it was on sale. I’m probably part of a small percentage of 30-year-olds who even know who she is and an even smaller percentage who have her collector’s edition DVD set. NERD ALERT! I’ve watched her movies and tried to emulate her dancing and singing skills, inadequately I must say, since I was little. But even if I couldn’t dance and sing my way through life, like Betty, I could at least look as stylish as her. Pencil skirts are the way to do it, they just make you feel like a lady and this extra long one is even better because of its retro feel.
TIP: Stick to one color family, it creates length. Add just a punch of color or print for contrast if you like!
