The Pencil Skirt Resurrected

I’ve more than my fair share of pencil skirts, which haven’t been worn for some time.  I go through fashion phases. It was all about the skinny, bootcut & boyfriend denim styles for awhile, and although I’m not ditching any of the above, I think it’s time to resurrect my pencil skirts.   Today I opted for this asymmetrical Esisto pencil skirt in eggplant, with a cropped fisherman’s sweater from American Apparel, Alexander Wang shoes and one of my favourite statement pieces of Jewelry. A necklace I found years ago at a consignment shop in Chicago. 

This look is feminine, sexy, relevant and most anyone can rock it. I don’t know about you, however, I need a hiatus from denim everyday. Time to get back in touch with my feminine side;)

Lately I’ve been drawn to dresses and skirts, I simply cannot go into a clothing store as of late and neglect either.  It seems my style evolves every few years, and with each evolution I feel more comfortable with the skin I’m in, as well as the clothing  I layer on top of it.  This lovely little dress has the perfect feminine silhouette, and the detail is simply divine.  The delicate, simple accessories create just the right amount of balance… way to go Tamra, Stylista Muse of the day!

Casey Mulligan is feminine chic in this beautiful red tulip dressed designed by Roland Mouret.  Although Casey chose to wear this lovely little number on the red carper, it is quite versatile, and would work for many different occasions.  The pairing with the blue pumps add just the right balance.

Temperley London Fall 2012

Temperley London showed a lovely, feminine and wearable collection for Fall 2012.  The use of colour added just the right amount of “pop,” while the floral prints were done very well.  There is nothing “adolescent” about the florals we saw prancing down the runway, in fact, they were done with great taste and sophistication.  The use of accessories added, completed the looks beautifully.  I could have done, however, without the large fur hats topping the heads of many of the models.  These looks are not shown, as I do not support the use of fur for vanity sake, torturing animals for this reason is simply cruel.  Furthermore, there is such an abundance of  beautiful textiles, trim, beading, etc. to choose from when designing a collection, it seems futile to choose a living, breathing creature which experiences a great deal of pain each time the choice is made for their precious fur.

I’ll get off my soapbox now… what can I say?  I’m quite passionate about my convictions, and now I present to you a few pieces from the Temperley London Fall 2012 Collection
