"Thanks!" to Em (in this post) who brought our attention to this skirt for a post.
To start off, I am not a fan of this skirt...
The website describes it as "A very special, limited-edition skirt in champagne silk georgette. This is a classic silhouette that never goes out of style. We love the mini-pleats and—the best part—the way it swings when you walk". From the additional views of the skirt, the silhouette does not seem like it will be flattering to anyone with curves, in particular those with curvy thighs.
Also, I wonder how those mini-pleats hold up when you continuously sit down. I have a sneaky suspicion those pleats will not maintain their shape and look a bit messy after awhile (which is an issue that most pleated skirts have).
Lastly, what is up with the waist on it? First, it looks like it sits very high on the model, despite being described as "sits at waist". Second, the double stitching around the waist seems to create an imaginary bulge around the tummy, while emphasizing the thighs- something that my pear shaped frame needs no help with. ;)
What are your thoughts on the Silk Pleated Skirt? Do you "love it" or would you "leave it"? Do you already own this skirt or have seen it at a store? If so, please share with us your review. :)
