Am I too old for the hush ruched skirt

I've ordered it and it has arrived. Now I see it in the flesh I'm wondering if I'm a bit old. I'm 42 (god that sounds old when I write it down) 5'2" and a size 10. Plan on wearing it with opaque, my biker style but taller boots and some floppyish jumpers sort of in hush style but-cheaper I'm now having a slight crisis that I will look a bit mutton dressed as lamb.

I think it sounds like it will look very nice.

I think it will look fab on you

I'm sure it will look amazing ,go for it smile

I think it looks lovely. I'm tempted to get one myself!

I bought it and I'm 46. Haven't had the nerve worn it yet though! I plan to wear it with woolly tights, boots and a sloppy boyfriend knit with scarf or necklace to finish it off. Keep it!

Looks lovely, go for it!

Hoping not as I have just bought a leather mini skirt for my work Xmas party and I'm 39. I have decent enough legs though so hope I get away with it and that the young staff members aren't too horrified grin.

Think it sounds lovely, esp the way you have styled it. Also, because you are short, I always think that helps with a tight short skirt,,,if that makes any sense at all?!

Of course not! Mine has come as an xmas pressie and dh has hidden it, hope it fits....

cloudskitchen Mon 16-Dec-13 21:34:56

Thank you all. I'll keep it and wear it with pride. Mines also a Christmas dressier but I got to it first so have tried it all together :D

cloudskitchen Mon 16-Dec-13 21:36:02

Erm pressie not dressier oops

I have 2 of the riches dresses and don't consider myself too old I look great in then they're so flattering.

RubyLovesShopping Mon 16-Dec-13 22:38:39

Ruched not riches!

I'm 42 , I wore a black ruched dress to a do tonight! And i have All Saints and Coast ruched skirts too

alltoomuchrightnow Tue 17-Dec-13 00:01:15

(all three are the parachute style, if that makes sense)

How on earth can you be too old for ruching? It's perfect for older women - makes all your lumpy bits disappear. Can somebody please explain?

higgle Tue 17-Dec-13 07:43:06

I'm 57 and wanted one but they were out of stock in my size - as it was a 10 I'll have another look.

cloudskitchen Tue 17-Dec-13 08:11:24

Just because it short and tight Floisme however it's fine with opaques and slouchy jumper.

Higgle I bought the black in the small and they had plenty. the other colour was sold out in all but xs.

Floisme Tue 17-Dec-13 08:28:38

It sounds great op; enjoy wearing it.

Beeyump Tue 17-Dec-13 13:58:22

I have just bought this skirt, op! It's amazing, and so versatile.
I'm 5'3 and size 8/10 as well, and it's a good length on me. Enjoy smile

GeekInThePink Tue 31-Dec-13 19:03:33

Heck I thought I was too old at 30 for them! I'm a 5,5ft size 8.
I'm taking the plunge.
How short is it? Could you wear it in an office environment?

Also where are you buying your boyfriend slouchy jumpers?
