Boxing Trouble

I was a tad disappointed to find a fantastic looking replica of my orange tulip Reiss skirt that I have been banging on about in previous blogs on in the form of this box pleat waist tulip skirt at only £24.50.

As my Reiss skirt is double that price I have to say I was a tad miffed. Although at least this one does not come in acid orange as I tell myself that makes my one unique.

The Power of a Petticoat

One tip: The petticoat goes a long way and makes ANY summer skirt or dress look amazing!! Take this check dress in the right image from Topshop. It looks AMAZING with the petticoat underneath.

and without....?

Not really as inspiring....

I recommend hunting around some charity shops for some really good value ones as they will be much cheaper than anything you will find in a Vintage shop. However if you're not a charity shop digger then Beyond Retro is an obvious, yet no hassle choice.
