Janet Jackson Wears Perfect High Waisted, Midi Pencil Skirt Look.

This is it! This is the look I was talking about. Last week I wrote I blogged about fall fashion and bigged up the midi pencil skirt. I also wrote a Mirror Image column last month hailing it. The midi pencil skirt's hem length varies from just below the knee to mid calf. Many of you wrote back asking, how can curvy women wear that look? You said it was only for thin women! You all got mad! Well, look at Ms. Jackson! She looks marvelous. She is definitely not a beanpole and this totally works on her. This is what I was talking about. OK, I'm off my style soapbox. In other news, we hope Janet is feeling better And, should she give Jermaine Dupri another chance? More importantly, what do you think about the look?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
