Pencil Skirt Perfection

 I spotted some printed pencil skirts lately and want them all. These are almost works of art! There is no more flattering shape to the curvier lady either. Well perhaps the A-line skirt would work for the taller curvier lady, it unfortunately renders me very mushroom-like.

Penneys Meadow Print pncil skirt €13

Aztec Ponti pencil skirt £22 River Island
Oasis Kaleidoscope skirt £56 but the most beautiful of all!!!
Topshop tropical skirt £38

Black print skirt £25 River Island

 These last two could easily pass for something straight out of the Givenchy Resort 2012 collection, with their amazing colours and tribal or floral detail. Waaaaaaant!

Little peep at 2012

Very pleased to see my most recent bargain buy on ASOS is very similar to some beautiful dresses and skirts with floral keyhole crochet detailing Louis Vuitton's Summer 2012 collection. And for €22!

ASOS Premium Shift Dress €22

Kate Moss and fellow models wearing pieces from the Louis Vuitton Summer 2012 collection

Lots of 50s housewife detailing in the Spring/Summer collections, knee length pencil dresses from Caroline Herrera, housecoats from Derek Lam, wasp waisted tweed jackets from Burberry. This is good news for average sized women everywhere, there is nothing more flattering than a knee length fitted pencil dress.

Alexander McQueen on the other hand doesn't seem to obviously reference any era. I think he is making fairytales for adult women, he is just pure crazy creative genius. If his Savage Beauty exhibition comes to London I am there! The black corset with stiff collar is almost exactly the dress I have wanted for years and never found. A little impractical if you plan on eating anything for the day but hey! Worth it!
