An Exceptional Find

 Not at all your average pencil skirt… When I saw this skirt online yesterday, I  immediately added it to my wish list (desperately trying to remain patient until a store promotion finally induces me to click the purchase button!). When choosing clothing for work, I tend toward the classic style; however, I prefer pieces featuring a ‘spark’ reflecting my love for fashion. This sleek pencil skirt’s exposed zipper adds a touch of edginess to the piece, giving us the option to wear it not only for work but also for a date or during the weekends. Lately, I have been crazy about tie blouses, and this one in silk is just perfect for looking stylish, polished, and professional. Finally, another trend I’m closely following is a wide belt highlighting the waist.

    The skirt is brilliant. I agree it’ll go very well styled down for work and can be spiced up for evening outings! I love the tie-front blouses too. Very YSL.
