Ali Martell: From Hemlines to Heels


Skirts That Suit You—And Me

Skirts I am Loving Right Now

One of my favorite Canadian stores is JACOB. The prices are good (the sales are even better—40% off the entire store? Sign me up!), the lines are clean, and now they have that wonderful (and dangerous) thing called e-commerce. 

I am a fan of their LBDs, their accessories, their cardigans, their trench coats, even their make-up. 

I look forward to the emails that show up in my inbox—and this morning's was no exception. I have actually often wondered about skirts; it's tough for me to know what styles will flatter my petite and not-quite hourglass/not-quite apple shape. My go-to style was always a-line, since it seemed to be universally flattering. But now I see from his handy-dandy chart, that I can do pencil skirts! I can do patterns!
