Midi Tailored Belted Ponti Fit and Flare Skirt (ZTASK1431380, $62.76) – Sizes left in camel are 6 & 8. The skirt also comes in black with sizes 2, 4, 6 remaining.
Size 6 – It’s pointless for me to try to get into this, but it’s definitely a keeper. I like the fabric & more substantial weight, compared to voile or chiffon. I’d say it’s a spring/fall skirt. There was an issue w/the zipper & was close to panicking as I know this only has 2 sizes left. I got the wax paper and went to work on the zipper. It’s still not the smoothest when it needs to cross the waistband seam, but I can get the zipper up & down. I did hold it up to me from behind and it seems like the length is going to be nice w/heels and may work w/boots, too. If not, I may get it hemmed an inch or two. I’ll have to wait and see. The faux leather belt it came with (pictured) looks pretty good. This skirt is in the spirit of the one seen in J Crew’s Fall 2011 camel skirt.
Waist = 14.5″ flat
Length = 26.5″ down the front, center
Midi Length Narrow Waistband Full Skirt ($62.76) – This bright blue is so pretty. It’s not the same fabric as the one above. It comes in a nutmeg type color called bran, which Asos shows on their runway. See a chiffon Asos skirt on Chasing Davies.
I went to TJ Maxx yesterday since I’ve seen their commercials running a lot lately. I mostly stayed around the handbag & baby sections. Here are some handbag highlights.
Hobo International ($39.99) – Cute leather clutch. This is a great color, if only it had been in red or cobalt blue.
Straw studios clutch ($19.99) – It’s the same as the one I bought last year, and mine is also by Straw Studios. Except mine is black w/gold chain & clasp. The black one at TJ Maxx has silver accents, as you can see in the pic below.
Speaking of clutches, if you haven’t seen…
