A note about this skirt, it does fit true to size, but the waist band did not want to work with my body so I got it altered to an elastic waist band, purely for comfort. I was lucky enough to find a beautiful red elastic, which I think looks really striking next to the pink.

It is a stunning skirt, with an ever more beautiful colour. It's surprisingly heavy, but coming into winter that's a bonus in my book. It has a really lovely satin lining and it feels like it's out of the 1920's due the the length and pleats.
In these photos I'm not wearing any shoes as I was on grass, but I'm 5'11 and this shows you how truly long this skirt is! Simply amazing! Also you might notice there are some dogs in the background! They are my new next door neighbours, Mohammed and Ali. I guess they wanted in on the shots too, they are the cutest, sweetest puppies ever!
You might also notice my new head dress. It started out with inspiration by Lana Del Rey but ended up more Frida Kahlo. And I couldn't be happier - although my fingers are quite mad at me, they took the brunt of the hot glue gun. But the red of the flowers works beautifully with both the pink and red this amazing skirt!
Close ups of my new head dress, just so you can all see the amazing colour in it. It has an amazing dark red which gets lighter as it goes into the centre of the flower. Yes, it's high - which makes me even taller - but It's so beautiful that doesn't really bother me. Anyone who dislikes my height can grow an inch!
So if your after a pleated maxi skirt this season, don't go for black this year - although it comes in that shade as well. I really think its a lovely, lovely pink shade that is just as classic as black. And it's the type of skirt that can be worn through every season. A real staple piece and retailing at $129 it's a steal considering the quality.
