Was it your partner saying don't wear the skirt?
If so, maybe it's his nice way of saying it doesn't look very good.

Maybe OP herself has deemed the skirt she already has as not suitable for the event, it reads a bit confusing.
Do you have a pair of slacks you could team with a dressy top or blouse? If it's corporate I'd go for a fitted shirt over slacks or simple A-line skirt. Smart casual is easy, just steer clear of denim and trackies really. Pop on a pair of pantyhose with your skirt. What's wrong with your knee high skirts? That's an average length is it not?
Can you describe the skirt you own that you can't wear?

No black is definitely an odd one... What type of event is it?
02-01-2016 14:28 #14
being told no black is a bit rude but I could live with that. being told not to wear any skirts you already own seems pretty rude.
if you want something that fits your new figure without spending a bomb, just go to Kmart. they've got heaps of cheap semi casual summer dresses and I bought these really nice sandals from there for $15.
for $40 you could probably get yourself a lovely new outfit. just buy something in your usual style that you could foreseeably wear again.

Depending on the type of function you're talking about the request is either fair enough or rudely bizarre. It's hard to comment (including suggestions on what to wear) without knowing the type of function it is,

See I think stylish, fitted jeans, boots and a blazer. But that's winter.
I'd go for one of your knee length skirts, a t shirt, funky jewellery and sandals.

My dh's work Xmas party was smart casual (which is what I think they mean) and this is what I wore.

They were plenty of women in skirts and nice tops so I can't see why they wouldn't want you wearing that. Having said that maybe they have planned games etc that might make you uncomfortable/self conscious in a skirt?

It's a christening.....
I might just go to tempt or valley girl and see what they have.

I wore a really nice (well I thought it was nice lol) dress from country road for a christening 2 weeks ago. I wore it with my Kmart sandals and felt the whole outfit looked nice.
but I wouldn't spend that much on a one occasion dress unless I had to (we were the godparents though).
definitely check out tempt, valley girl, dotti etc for some cheap and cheerful dresses

I would consider what you said (a nice top with pants) to be semi casual. Or a skirt/summery dress. Obviously no thongs. It's a fairly ambiguous dress code, really open to interpretation.
Honestly though, do people really need to stipulate a dress code these days? Surely one can assume the dress code based on the event and time. It's a bit pompous IMO.
Hope you can find something, but don't stress about it too much.
