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.
Have you tried a google image search ? You may need to trim the photo or screenshot you have but I’ve tracked down interiors things this way.
Needle & Thread?…
I think Boden have one like it Esther.
oh “Buffy”………..time to revisit!

Did you see the new season Boden icons?

pretty! but no the right one… xx
I saw an article making fun of the Buffy fashions when it was the 20 year thing. I was thinking they’d stood up reasonably well, but maybe that’s a sign of being left behind. Like wincing when you hear Oasis on non-stop oldies. I still sort of want the yellow leather jacket the first Buffy wore in the movie. Not the same at all, but this reminds me of an embroidered mini I really liked the look of that Gwen Stefani wore, think it was D&G and was maybe last year sometime. I’m now suddenly hopeful of finding a cheap lookalike that won’t look as good on me, so you’ve started me on a potentially fruitless and frustrating search with this post; hope you’re pleased with yourself xxx
Cindy I’m ALWAYS delighted to waste your time and ruin you financially *cackle*
Sorry I’m a bit late to the party but was it this one from Anthropologie? If not it’s still quite nice! https://www.anthropologie.com/en-gb/shop/lyn-embroidered-midi-skirt-blue?category=skirts&color=040
possibly! I’ve now looked as so many embroidered skirts I can’t for the life of me recall the original one..
