Maxi-skirts - (I deeply wish...)
I wish I had long enough legs to carry off a skirt like this. I love this look... After seeing these pages in Elle a few months ago, I dutifully purchased a black (much cheaper) version of the skirt above from a second hand shop, desperately hoping it would fit.
After months of lurking in a drawer, I have finally given up any hope of wearing it. The Olsen twins look great in things like this but I am, sadly, not an Olsen twin. Besides all else, the skirt is a little too big for me around the waist, and so snakes down my hips to well and truly trail and get caught up under my shoes, therefore running the risk of being pulled down. (That would be embarrassing - particularly when trying to board/depart a commuter train.)
You can now find my version of the skirt on ebay for a very low starting price. I just want it to go to a good home.. in the meantime, I shall search for a more practical skirt length..
