Fashion trend or fashion victim?

I am seeing them everywhere. I am ok with the skirts but with the belts I no likey. Is it me?

FrenchGirl Tue 12-Jul-05 15:25:05

no we must stop this trend!!!! looks nice on youngish girls, but not on older rounder laydeees IMO. Have seen hundreds already today, let's be different!

I've got the browny gypsy skirt with no belt. Am quite happy.

northerner Tue 12-Jul-05 15:26:42

I have brown and white gypsy skirts. Must confess to wearing them with a belt and a strappy vest top.

gingerbear Tue 12-Jul-05 15:27:03

Especially if like me your 'arse is the size of a small country'

FrenchGirl Tue 12-Jul-05 15:27:27

ah you see brown no belt sounds good to me, it's all that david hamilton virginal white gipsy skirt big belt stuff I am beginning to hate!!!
sure you look great in brown

lunavix Tue 12-Jul-05 15:27:50

Mine's the size of a 'small county' hence the skirt in brown as white is most definately unflattering.

FrenchGirl Tue 12-Jul-05 15:27:56

oops northerner.....

ninah Tue 12-Jul-05 15:28:18

it's not you, it's nasty

I love the skists but i am short so i dont think they suit me, i have one chunky belt but its not a circly one i pair it with my 3/4 length jeans i think it looks good for summer, i may be wrong but i dont give a monkeys, i love the gypsie look though howere being short and slightly podgy i doesnt work for me

northerner Tue 12-Jul-05 15:29:19

Went to a BBQ on Sunday wearing my white one. Dh's step Gran (she's 91) retorted 'what are you wearing? - looks like the petticoat I wore under my wedding dress'

gingerbear Tue 12-Jul-05 15:29:31

lunavix, only a county? mine is heading towards a sub-continent - Australasia perhaps.

northerner Tue 12-Jul-05 15:30:37

Well I like the look. I will continue to wear the gypsey look with pride.

dillydally Tue 12-Jul-05 15:32:20

The combination of specifically the white skirts and those belts is starting to be a Londontown uniform and I am standing out like an old fart refusing to conform.
My arse is the size of Monaco.

charleepeters - yes, at 5 ft 3 and ahem a bit over the 8 stone weightwatchers tell me I'm meant to be I think I am the wrong shape for the look

gingerbear - yes, I'd say my arse is the size of a small county hence I think I can get away with the brown gypsy skirt, but not the white!!!

dillydally Tue 12-Jul-05 15:33:52

My DD has one in bright green - we team it with fake birkenstocks and no belt.

compo Tue 12-Jul-05 15:34:02

I was just about to ask if people meant the Saskia look from BB!!!

it's the belt that does it ... eeuhw
I've got a v pale beige gypsy skirt and a big pregnant belly for my barefoot in the kitchen look

aloha Tue 12-Jul-05 15:39:16

Given away all my tiered gypsy skirts to charity shop! Not only did I look the size of small planet in them, I do think they are too ubiquitous now, sadly.

oliveoil Tue 12-Jul-05 15:41:41

i have a drop waisted one fom asda, so not quite gypsy.

no caps, eating magnum icecream mmmmmm, typing 1 handed

dramaqueen72 Tue 12-Jul-05 15:42:18

I've got a black maternity one, also good for my barefoot and pg look ninah . not keen on the white ones +circley belt thingy tho tbh.

lilibet Tue 12-Jul-05 15:42:27

I do feel that I am the only person under the age of 60 who doesn't own a white skirt!

oliveoil Tue 12-Jul-05 15:43:06
