Knee-length, cotton, chocolate brown/white pattern with big stylised flowers. I'm hoping chocolate brown + white means it goes with all my green and red shirts, and will be more wearable than the rust one I'm struggling with.
Actually, it was speed shopping, I tried on two skirts and a top, could see why they were at Bicester Village (ok, the top just wouldn't go around my biceps ), and then grabbed this one and bought it. I like it, it fits, it's a flarey simple knee-length thing.
I just almost never wear skirts, but am going to quite a few drinks things with DH these days, and would like to be going out more, but find myself with very few 'going out' clothes.
Hmmm, I might be curious about fancy knickers, although my thighs seem to have sorted themselves out for the moment. (I know I could wear bicycle shorts stylee things under skirts, but that wouldn't really be cool.)
I might wear it on Tuesday, I think it will work on the bike.
(Surely Frances buying a skirt would mean a thread title of 'I bought a skirt, again!'? Or words to that effect?)
I actually quite liked one of the skirts I didn't buy, well, I liked the print on it, but it was a very very strange skirt otherwise - no zipper, and I could only get it on over my head. Then, once on, I had two weird Japaneseish stylee belt things (different sizes), but no belt loops, and the skirt bulged weirdly with the belt on.
I quite like Bicester, though, everything is quite cheap, there are lots of interesting stores all next to each other, and I can just have a good look around and buy things low-risk. When still tubby from having DS2 I bought three trousers at Mexx for £5 each. When I was not tubby, I found only one of them suited me, but that was fine.
