In Appreciation of Longer Skirts

Monday, August 30, 2010


Sorry, summer. With your humidity that makes my hair look like a big frizzy puffball, and your sweat-inducing temperatures, I'm ready for fall. And I am SO ready for full, mid-calf skirts, a la the Louis Vuitton (above, just below) and Marc Jacobs (far below) fall collections. Thrifters, take note: I've been scouring for '50s and '80s versions out there, and there are definitely some good finds to be had.

mid-calve length dresses and skirts are my favourite!

I like this look so, so much - on tall people. I have a few skirts that are even a bit shorter than those and I still have to wear platforms to prevent me from looking like a gnome :/

What are your recommendations for local DC thrift stores carrying such skirts. I need em!

The images on your site don't show up in firefox for me. They work in internet explorer, though.

I just thought I'd let you know.
