the One.

Dear Fashion Diary,


I cannot believe I have finally found a modest, to-the-knee skirt at Forever 21. 
I love all their skirts but usually have to sadly walk away
because it seems the biggest piece of cloth on their skirts is the tag! 
So frustrating.
But I finally found it. My long search for a polkadot Modest pencil skirt is over! 
It's like finding Mr. Right after unsuccessfully looking and looking for....the One.
(Did she just compare finding the love of your life to finding a cute skirt?!)
Yeah that just happened. 




I will add though that I did not find this in a store, it was online. I usually find more unique stuff online than in a store....wish it didn't work that way but it usually does.

Love this outfit! You look so cute as always! Is the skirt knit? or more of a cotton material?

Hurrah! This is a great day for skirts-at-the-knee girls everywhere!

the skirt is so beautiful, and I love how you paired it with the rest of the outfit, it looks great :)

You're right, Sara, the length of this skirt is perfect. That's exactly where I like my pencil skirts to hit too. Love the pairing of this look!

I love those heels and that is a gorgeous polka dot skirt. I love pencil skirts, they always look instantly sophisticated.

Erika said...

I completely agree with you on Forever21 skirts! I just found what looked like the perfect navy lace pencil skirt a couple weeks ago and it was waaaay too short. That polka dot one is just perfect though, and I love how you have it styled with mustard (great combo :)

Also, I never find anything from F21 in-store, online is always where it's at for me too :)

Callie said...

Lovely outfit - love the color combos, though I don't think I'd have seen them together in that way. You really styled them well! You're super gorgeous. =)

Yep, I usually find all the good stuff online as well. I don't really like online shopping (I'm super paranoid), but I have to admit I do enjoy receiving packages and opening them up to see my goodies. :)

I found a modest knee-length skirt at Forever 21 in December! It's a beautiful red pencil skirt that I actually have not worn yet! Perhaps because it's a little too tight to wear to work, even though it's a modest length.

I found you through Plane Pretty's link up. Glad I did! :)

Terrific skirt, and I love how you've styled it - thanks for sharing it with Visible Monday!

I never actually try F21's skirt but this one of yours looks really good - well fit and great print. I am addicted to online shopping and I am very happy that more and more online stores are now shipping to Dubai!!

haha, your comment about he tag being as long as the skirts! Seriously, their skirts are always SO short. It's a bummer that you have to go online to find the good stuff because then you have to pay shipping.

I really like the blouse that you're rocking here too!

I think those black high heel shoes looks pretty on you. Since I'm a shoe dealer I have a good knowledge about shoe fashion.
