Pencil Me In >> Skirt Inspiration



Women with guns.  For some reason that made me think more about my subversive skirt that is actually turning into a not so subversive pencil skirt.  Not so very different after all.  At least in my mind my inspiration is the juxtaposition between the great outdoors, guns, and form fitting skirt with a high slit.

Power and sexiness in a skirt.  Luckily the September 2011 issue of Instyle Magazine explained how the pencil skirt is able to somehow convey both.    The pencil skirt, the caption read, looks put together and professional but the shape of the skirt causes the hips to rock back and forth when you walk.

Mobility in action.  I can only hope that I can make the skirt (using some repurposed wool from a "thrifted" skirt) comfortably tight.  Perhaps that is an oxymoron.  We will find out.
