The teacher’s in: vintage pencil skirts

Has there ever been a sexier, more sought after silhouette than the one shaped by a pencil skirt?  An hourglass figure is practically built in with its high waist, pleated hips, and narrowed hem, and has long been the center of any schoolboy fantasy.  Paired with a bun just waiting to be unleashed into a wild mane of curls, of course.  It’s my fashion stance that the pencil skirt is the single most flattering garment a girl can have in her closet, and I’ve got one in almost every color.

Almost.

So naturally I stalk my vintage prey on Etsy.  Here are the ones I have my eye on.  Maybe if I give the shop owners a shiny red apple…

  1. God, I love pencil skirts. If I could ride my bike in a pencil skirt I would probably wear them all the time!

    • Haha, if only you could ride it sideways, with your legs propped like the Victorian horse-riding ladies. But I suppose bike-riding is what shirtwaist dresses were made for!
