It's no mistake that during the year of the snake in Chinese Astrology which is meant for steady progress and attention to detail, snake prints showed up on the runway of Erde, Gucci, Roberto Cavalli and Salvatore Ferragamo. And they're cropping up on everything from dresses to bags. When I found this skirt at J.Crew last fall I knew I had to have it. After some tailoring it's now one of my favorite pencil skirts. I paired it with a neutral blouse to let the focus be on the skirt. As I was digging through my bag (a little Spring purse cleansing) I found a burgundy lipstick (bite beauty lipstick in mulberry) that my Aunt had snuck in there months ago as a gift! I love the look of a dark lip with this  skirt.
