Its a lovely teal colour and I did buy teal opaques. But should I just go with black opaques and black boots and black top. Or colour clash - or colour match??
ps only have black boots.

I think black tights black boots and a black top.....perhaps a necklace with a teal stone in? make the skirt the statement.

I love brown with teal, its v v lush! Just looks so much richer and less harsh than black with it I think

hmm - no brown boots though GB. I did order some brown boots from Oxygen - but they were too small.

Hmm if Id read your post properly I'd have known that.sorry!

Purple top or tights but not both and then black top or tights but again not both.

You could also do taupe/nude silky type blouse with purple/black tights.

where did you get that skirt?

PippiLongBottom Thu 08-Sep-11 13:57:48

There is a teal A-line mini in Primarni. It is woolly although I doubt it is actual wool.

MitchiestInge Thu 08-Sep-11 13:58:01

that sounds accusatory, am only asking because once had such a skirt many years ago and would like to replace it

not suggesting you stole it from me, wondering where I can buy one

MitchiestInge Thu 08-Sep-11 13:58:50

thanks pippi

AlfalfaMum Thu 08-Sep-11 14:00:50

I want a teal wool skirt envy

MitchiestInge Thu 08-Sep-11 14:04:26

well not actual wool is a selling point, my days of dry clean only or delicate handwashing are long gone

along with all my nice clothes

PippiLongBottom Thu 08-Sep-11 14:06:53

I think I might go and get it. I loved that shape skirt when I was 19, back in ninety something.

I held it against me and DDaged 9 was hmm

MitchiestInge Thu 08-Sep-11 14:15:21

Uh why can't you buy stuff from their website?

get one for me while you're there please

PippiLongBottom Thu 08-Sep-11 14:29:42

If I go this weekend I will have a proper look at them and tell you all about them.

Navy goes v nicely with teal too.
I'd quite like one too...

UterusUterusGhali Thu 08-Sep-11 14:35:06

Black boots & tights, fushia pink top or scarf.

MitchiestInge Thu 08-Sep-11 14:37:12

I like coral pink with teal but it probably doesn't look nice to the rest of the world

PippiLongBottom Thu 08-Sep-11 14:41:06

They might be shit though. I fear I may have built up the Primarni one as some kind of paragon of teal wool skirts. blush

TracyK Thu 08-Sep-11 15:27:35

Is Primarni the same as Primark?
Thats where I got mine - £12 - kind of mock wrap around with 2 little buckles at front/side. V nice material - much more expensive looking than it was.
Thanks for the ideas!

PippiLongBottom Thu 08-Sep-11 16:29:54

Yeah Primarni is Primark. I think the one I saw was plain.

TracyK Fri 09-Sep-11 07:28:16

They must be popular - there was only 2 left on the rail last weekend.
It also has a nice dark, dark brown leather (hmm) trim all round it.
