Happy Friday! (From a lazy blogger)

Ok, maybe not lazy, but, lazy works, too ;) I didn't get much posting done because no matter how much I seemed to accomplish this week, more piled up. I broke free of No Shopping January with a decent haul at Last Chance on February 1st (obviously the self-imposed restrictions did not retrain my brain) and will post pictures soon!

In the meanwhile, check out some of the Spring 2011 collections that had "midi-length" skirts and dresses. I have been daydreaming about this style all week! (All photos from

Charles Anastase. So retro and yet totally wearable (esp if the pieces were broken up).

Tory Burch. Totally clean and fresh. I love the TB girl because she is the kind of lady who always has shiny hair, never runs late and never has even a wrinkle in her skirt...aka, not me!

Marc by Marc Jacobs. The belt makes this dress! I would wear it all...except maybe the hair ;)

Cynthia Rowley. I love the color palette and sleeves (and you know I love stripes!). The necklace is a really cute, abstract touch.

Chloe. Maybe it's the Black Swan hype, but this gives me a dancer-ish the old movies starring a glamorous dame like Cyd Charisse. She'd be wearing a fab outfit and then you'd realize her chic outfit, though perfectly fitted and tailored, was chosen to showcase movement when she suddenly breaks into a dance sequence.

Would you ever wear midi-length skirts, or are they too matronly?
Happy Friday and have a great weekend!


  1. I love that Charles Anastase blouse...stunning! I totally hear ya (I think my last post was Jan 28...). I've been swamped with work and when I do have some free time, it seems I just want to take a nap!

  2. I loved the Tory Burch collection -- stunning. And that Marc by Marc dress is fantastic!

  3. I was just checking out that TB sweater on their versatile, so not-currently-in-the-budget. You have me reconsidering the personal ban I have on midi-length skirts...

  4. I don't know if I can do mid-length skirts, but I'd sure like to give that Marc Jacobs number a try. Whew is it ever gorge!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Oh I think I might need that last skirt~

  6. Im in love with the Chloe outfit. I would love to get a skirt like that! Happy day, sweetie pie

  7. LOVE the Charles Anastase look! Fabulous. Following your blog now!
