I'm wearing this skirt and these shoes in defiance of a salesperson whose boutique I visited during my Christmas shopping. I went in wearing the same bottom half as in these pictures (I assure you, I had a top on too). I didn't find what I needed, and headed for the door. On my way out, the salesperson placed her hand on my arm and said 'Can I offer you a suggestion?' Curious, I said okay. She then pointed to my legs and asked me if I could see how my ankle-height booties, sheer tights and pencil skirt were 'chop chop' and did not create a nice line. She then tried to sell me tights in the same colour as my shoes. I've never worked in fashion retail, but I'm guessing commenting on a customer's CURRENT outfit is not in the training manual. And I think that I have long enough legs to pull it off. I know I'll never manage a waspish waist with curvy hips or gorgeous decolletage, but I play up my assets. As I left the store (without the suggested tights) I overheard her reassuring a women in a dress 3 sizes too small and 4 inches too short that she did indeed look great. I shook my head and vowed to never return.
