Pencil skirts are great thrift finds because there always seems to be an abundance of them. I would recommend buying one that is slightly large on you and then altering it because a fitted skirt should be just that. If I wasn't passing this skirt along in the swap, I would have just hemmed it a bit into a mini-skirt.
Here is how Lily of Love Charles Vintage styled it. I love how it looks with jewel tones!
