As my discerning audience well knows, the pencil skirt is it right now.
J.Crew jumped on this trend with both ballet-flat covered feet. The No. 2 Pencil Skirt is synonymous with pencil skirt coolness, comes in every color of the rainbow and costs a whopping $130.
Mine has a real zipper, wasn't hard to do and cost less than $3.
The secret is thrift-store shopping with a very wide net when it comes to size.
Here's what I started off with - a size 16 skirt in a pleasing color.
I took in the sides and faked out the waistband.
And ended up with this.
And, just as J.Crew advertises, it's incredibly versatile.
