Pencil Skirt

Yasmina Greco - ModCloth Pencil Skirt

This might just be the only pencil skirt you’ll find me in. Long time readers of my blog know I am a swing skirt kinda gal. Let’s dive right in this skirt review and talk about the boarder print…those fabulous rainbow hued colored pencils!! Yep, it’s the rainbow pencils that caught my eye and I could not wait to get this skirt on and shoot it. The skirt is by ModCloth, not a brand I typically wear but this boarder print was just too good. I read some of the online reviews and was a little concerned about sizing as the reviews were all over the place. I ordered per the size chart and am so glad I did, as the fit is perfection. The skirt is made of cotton and breathes and has enough room in the waist to be very comfortable.

Here are some pics and yes, that is our very own 1950s Philco Predicta TV and it still works!!

Yasmina Greco - A-Line Modcloth Pencil SkirtThis skirt is very well made and includes a liner. It is an A-line cut and has pockets. The shape, being A-line did not work with a petticoat so I was a little saddened that I would not be able to wear a variety of colors with it but, the shape and fit are totally on-point. And those rainbow pencils, my oh my, in-person they are even brighter and more brilliant!! I paired the skirt with a berry colored top and belt to nip in my waist. This skirt allows for so many tops and cardigans and couldn’t be any simpler to style. Since I am more of a vintage/retro Pinup Girl I went with that theme and even added a matching hair tie. The skirt is so incredibly versatile and can be dressed up or down with a blouse and accessories. You can also pair it with a variety of colorful shoes!! I will next be wearing this with a turquoise blue (my favorite color) top and matching accessories so stay tuned. The skirt is selling out quickly so hurry and snap yours up while sizes are in stock – ModCloth Cotton A-Line Skirt with Pockets.

Mid-Century Galore at Midway Antique Mall

One of my all time favorite antique malls in California has got to be Midway Antique Mall in Sacramento. We took a drive out this past weekend and enjoyed ourselves very much with a ‘walk back in time’ at the mall. What we love about this mall is that they have created or shall I say re-created the rooms and lifestyles of the 1950s-1960s. The mall is over 30,000 sqft so there is a lot to too look at from Mid-Century, Antique, Vintage, and Collectibles.

Here are some pictures my husband took of some of out favorite rooms and finds at the mall. This neat tv caught my eye and it is a very rare 1959 Philco ‘Predicta’ that has been completely restored and can be hooked up to a DVD, VCR, AT&T, Comcast, Dish etc… Have all the ‘style and charm’ of an original 1959 Predicta with the conveniences of today’s tv watching. I know we will be kicking ourselves for not bringing it home as I can’t stop thinking about.
