So Jones New York totally has my back on this, so I'll post a sampling (yes, sampling) of my favorite long skirts from them. They are still out my price range (helloooo, grad student!), but they're allllllllllmost affordable for destitute me!

Also, I tried this skirt on in person:
and, unfortunately, it didn't work. While the print is beautiful, it's a mite old lady, and the shape feels too 1950s. It also feels like there is too much material in the skirt. OH WELL. I don't recommend this one. The one good thing - it feels well made and high quality.
Along with JNY, MANGO has some **FrEsH** new options for long skirts. However, their website is a pain in the a** to navigate. Just sayin'. Here are my faves:
pocketed skirt, $99.90; button-front skirt, $79.90 - this tie belt is genius, I'm going to start using ties as belts. Images from shop.mango.com.
And that concludes my journey through skirt insanity!
