Flirty and cute but still professional.  Awesome Smiley

I think the skirt is really adorable now.  I love the touch of lace on the bottom. But, I remember having the thought when I first saw your skirt that I had no suggestions because anything that might make it fun would probably make it less professional.  Now I'm not so sure that it easily passes.

Granted, I work in an environment where a ruffle on the bottom of a skirt would be considered edgy.  I might wear it to work, but I'm not upwardly mobile, so I don't really gain anything professionally by wearing the standard work uniform.  I'd think twice about breaking this out in a more conservative office space without making a study of what women around you wear on a regular basis.  In fairness, I could also be paranoid because I once received a complaint that when I stretched my shirt would sometimes lift up ever so slightly and occasionally some skin could be seen.  Who is looking that hard?  Why?  But you know how offices can be.

Glad you like it, folks!

42elefantes-- I know what you mean.  Luckily I'm just a college student and this would probably be considered very dressy for my job (my coworker is having a good day if he's clean).  I agree that in certain contexts it would not be a good idea, but luckily for me it is fine.

Thanks for the ideas everyone!
