Prim and Polished

Amanda Garrigus in Cornell Collins wool skirt

By now I think I’ve well established my love of all things leggy, but, there is a time and place for everything. Sometimes a demure knee-length skirt and an equally restrained blouse are what’s called for. For example, if you’re planning a corporate merger or lecturing in a hallowed hall of higher learning. My lavender wool skirt, a Cornell Collins original, and Forever 21 blouse convene atop an Aldo pump worth parading. I’ve tucked all this hair up and away in a modified chignon for added sartorial impact and just like that, I feel a steely if feminine confidence. (This is where I conjure my imagined alter ego who is crushing it in the worlds of both finance and academia.) If you’re wed to a certain skirt length, I say mix it up a little! You might be surprised by the way it changes your walk, your talk, and your plans for the immediate and perceived future.

With love,

Amanda

  1. I think you speak simply from the heart. You look great, and very entertaining to read and learn about fashion. Carry on you are a great example.
