Recently, I visited the shiny happy clothing crackhouse J.Crew b & m store. The Cord Pencil Skirts are catalogue/online only, but I figured the cord pants are in some of the same colors, right? How 'bout checking out the pants?
Initially I'd come to see this beautiful blue-grey baby:
J.Crew Cord Pencil Skirt in Shadow
...but Shadow, irl, seemed more a drab version of purple than a snappy storm-blue.
The dark brown one, eh, I didn't bother. I already have a dark brown skirt.
J.Crew Cord Pencil Skirt in Golden Wood
Now the golden brown one was surprisingly good. It looks light and kinda useless here, but in person it's darker. This I could be tempted to buy.
Or...? The sole corduroy skirt I own is this red one:
...and I'll have to say, the material is beautiful. It's this super fine-waled cord, and the skirt has little side slits, giving it a sort of cheongsam effect. Mmmm...haven't decided yet.
I've pretty much finished the grade report program, after slaving away at it all day. I ended up cobbling together an old Lasso load program, an old temporary table I had left on the server, and some new PHP code. PHP is noticeably faster than Lasso, which makes sense, since the Lasso guys have all these pre-written functions, which do make your life easier, but entail more overhead. That's why I'd suspected it would be faster to write new PHP code than try making the old Lasso code work with our new system.
