Petticoat: Domino Dollhouse
So I did end up getting this skirt hemmed a few inches shorter, though looking at it, I probably could have gone a little shorter still. I still wanted to be able to wear it with my fouffy Domino Dollhouse petticoat underneath it so that limited my hemline somewhat.
I dressed the skirt down (well, as “down” as a full circle midi skirt with a tulle petticoat can be) today with a t-shirt and a pair of plastic flats from Melissa. They’re new, and I’m pretty happy with them, though they seem to get sweatier than my other pair of Melissa’s. I’m gradually building my red shoe collection back up again, after an unprecedented drought.
Melissa “Wanting” shoes in red gloss.
Just for curiosity’s sake I also took a shot of today’s outfit sans petticoat. Not a lot of difference, I’m sure you’ll agree. The skirt has a good weight to the fabric and it holds its shape well and doesn’t crush beyond repair the moment you sit down. I’m quite delighted with it (even if I suspect it’s still a bit too long).
Great outfit! Red, black and stripes – such a classic combination. And that skirt looks like it’s made for swirling in 🙂
I love it! I have to be very careful with full skirts. I love them but being only 5 foot tall, they can very quickly swallow me if I don’t keep the hemlines at knee length! You look lovely as usual.
I think I prefer the skirt sans petticoat! Love the stripey top with the skirt!!
I think i like it without the petticoat too. It’s quite a big difference but i love the silhouette better without it.
You know, I don’t actually own any red shoes! How has this happened?? I must correct this error immediately!! Really like the outfit, I really need to wear my similar skirt from Domino Dollhouse more often. I’ve only worn it a couple of times and not blogged it! Hmmm. Anyway – back to you! I really like the outfit – its a really good buy from ASOS.
Love Melissas (I feel like I’m always here saying that!) and these look great with this outfit! I think that skirt hem sits perfect for you, especially with the flats!
Adorable! It is a super flattering look on you and I like the dressed down look. Great job yet again!
