Outfit 18 - Pinstriped Navy Blue Skirt

I notice that the  high-waisted skirts that fit me the best (and the ones that have no breathing room) are usually from China or Hong Kong.  I would probably fit a size large over there!  How is it that they are able to have such tiny waists, right?  ^_^;;;;

I paired this skirt with another navy blue item that has never seen the light of day either.   I have difficulty making long cardigans work for me.  I think that was before I discovered that I didn't *need* to button them up all the way, or at all!  When I buttoned it all up, it was not a pretty sight at the hips.  >_<

Navy blue belt as well!  I didn't have navy blue shoes though.  I hope that's okay.  I somehow got it in my head that black and navy blue aren't suppose to go together, like brown and black?  But, the rules have certainly changed, I hope!

Oh, beautiful and structured white purse, how faithful you are!

  1. That's a great office look (one I may use in the future!). Also, I hear you re: sizing in Asia. I was an XXL in Viet Nam in 2003...and my pants ripped after the second time I wore them!

  2. I like this combination a lot. Cardigan looks great belted. And blue and black are one of my favs right now.

  3. Great skirt and so classy! Thanks for sharing on Thrifty THursday :)

  4. I love this outfit. You look great in that skirt - SO flattering!

  5. What a classy look! I really do love how you pair that structured white bag with various outfits - it adds a nice touch :)

    I agree with you on Asian sizing - the last time I went to Hong Kong (5'2" and 102 lbs) I was very firmly size Medium. It was definitely a change of pace to be average and NOW, well I'm pretty sure I'm XL or XXL LOL.

  6. Very chic and professional looking outfit. And I love how you work that white bag!

    And yes... Asian sizing is insane. I remember one year when I was there a group of us walked into a shop and we were convinced we must be in a kid store because everything was so small... nope.

  7. @questforfashionsense - Yes, feel free to use! Bwahaha, thanks for sharing the store of your pants ripping! =P So embarrassing! But, I'm sure you handled it with poise. :D

    @kris - Thanks!

    @Modest Fashion Sense - Thanks, and as always, thanks for hosting!

    @Abby - Thanks for the compliments!

    @SewPetiteGal - Oooh, thanks for taking notice of my purse. I hope you don't get too sick of seeing it so often! =P It's okie to be an XL or XXL where you're at! ^_~

    @K Blue - Thanks! I think I'd be thrilled to find a store where everything actually fit! Sometimes, small sizes are difficult to find, and I wouldn't mind being a larger size if there were more options available! =P
