I am in a rage because I saw a photo of a girl the other day, wearing a really smart embroidered skirt and I cannot find the skirt. Usually I aminsanely good at tracking down things like that. Either I see it and simply know where it is from or I go looking. And I don’t stop until I have found it. I tracked down a husband using the same skill-set.
I don’t even want to buy that damned skirt! I’ve got nowhere to wear it. But I must know where it is from.
It was a knee-length embroidered jobby, last seen on Sarah Michelle Gellar during the later series of Buffy. The girl was wearing it with a camel coat and, I think, a shirt and looked fantastic.
The closest thing I can find is this from Alice + Olivia on the Outnet. Was it this one? My head says yes but my heart says no.
It definitely wasn’t this Valentino one, but it was this kind of thing.
Things on the Outnet are often future massive trends on the high street – I got a black and white gingham shirt from there about 6 months ago and now gingham is everywhere and I can’t wear it for fear of people thinking that I’ve only just got it. So keep a sharp eye out for early embroidered skirt pieces in, e.g., Zara. I think it’s the next thing. Or just buy the Alice + Olivia skirt. Someone’s got to have it and it can’t be me.
Anyway it all got me thinking about floral skirts and I really fancy this one from asos.com
Or something cooler, a bit less literal, from OtherStories:
I love the combination of the dark purple and the very now-ish pink. So lovely with a white t-shirt. That’s all.
