J. Crew Petite No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Wool Review

February 11, 2012

I feel less guilty when I splurge on "work" clothes so that splinter accounts for a huge chunk of my clothing bill every month. My latest and most questionable splurge are these neon colored pencil skirts from J. Crew.

I didn't get a very good discount on them but expect to get quite a bit of wear out of them after my February Challenge concludes. The gold is a definite keeper but the other three I'll have to dwell on some more.

Let's start with what I don't like about the skirt: the weird pouch in the front that can probably be mistaken for early signs of a pregnancy. Alas, I am not pregnant so this is not a welcomed look.

I think the pouch may be a result of the waist being somewhat baggy on me. Though I've learned that my waist extends rather substantially after a meal so I am at this juncture not bothered by this waist gap.
The four skirts shown here are not perfect replicas of each other size-wise but the sizing discrepancy isn't very pronounced so if one color fits chances are good that the others will too.
Here are the measurements for the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in double-serge wool, information courtesy of J. Crew's live chat. 
These No. 2 Pencil Skirts in Double-Serge Wool also runs similarly large compared to other J. Crew Pencil Skirts and about a size bigger than the Flair Skirt in double serge wool, which measures merely 12 inches across the waist for the 00P.
If you are even a bit smaller than me, then I would advise you to stay away from J. Crew pencil skirts as I don't know if this skirt is easy to alter.

Do you have any other recommendations for pencil skirts in vibrant colors? Please share them with me in the comment section. Thanks!
