runway to my way


Ann Demeulemeester S/S 2011 skirt.

Skirt on the runway and on Harper Bazaar Australia's Christine Centenera

Although I cannot imagine a situation where I would let the train drag behind me (that is until I buy my marble-floored mansion and hire a team of minions to keep it dust-free) I still wanted to keep that option open. I saw these snaps-on-a-strip at the sewing supply store and tried them out, sewing the strip along the edge of the skirt and at the tips of the train. It works very well and because the snaps are an inch apart I can actually adjust the length for different heel heights. This skirt is currently my favorite "not-so-basic" basic. It looks great with a plain white tank top in the summertime and I plan on using it as a layering piece when cooler weather rolls around.

  1. It looks so chic and effortless with the sweatshirt! Not really a fan of how Christine is wearing it, the tights ruin the delicate quality of the skirt! Must see the legs!

  2. Somehow it ends up being much more sexy than a miniskirt. I imagine it to be just as breezy
