My Latest Obsession

Has anyone checked out the no. 2 pencil skirts from Jcrew? 
I am in love!

Below are a few of my favs

Lets face it though $110.00 is quite steep for a skirt!

Since I can't afford the wonderful Jcrew skirts I resorted to making a few of my own and thrifting!

Here is an amazing tutorial to make a pencil skirt. So far I have made 2! They probably take 2 hours, but if you can get fabric for for less than $110 it is for sure worth it!

Below are two that I have made! Sorry no outfit photos :( the hubs was gone.




If you can't sew, thrifting is the perfect option! Check out this aqua skirt I got at Salvation Army!



How about you, what are your ways to find something cheaper?

I totally need some pencil skirts :) You are awesome for sewing them yourself. My mom is an amazing seamstress...but somehow I never really learned it.

How awesome! I'm always disgusted by the prices of some clothes. This looks like a fantastic alternative! Good job, girl!
