Here's another closet orphan, that I tried to style in a way that wouldn't seem too old or frumpy, by taking cues from the always stylish and resourceful Jentine of My Edit. OK, so I would have to say that I've not got the hang of it yet. I'm going to continue to wear this for my work from home day, but this seems to have crossed an invisible frump line that I'm not thrilled with.
I've had this skirt since 2002, before I graduate college and as an attempt to build up a "Teaching assistant" wardrobe. It's made of a thick double knit, almost sweatshirt like fabric. It has some pilling on it, but that wouldn't stop me from wearing it. I just don't know how to wear it without getting swallowed up by it. You can't quite see it here, but the side seams are geared from a woman of rounder hips. I usually deal with that by pulling a top over it. Perhaps I should add two seams to the sides and try this again, during the challenge.
