Oh this skirt, this skirt!! It's pieces like this that make me believe in love at first site. It compounds that intimate feeling you have when you know something is right, that a relationship is meant to be, that you belong together. So it is with me and this By Malene Birger sequin Poliio skirt. It's not just the sequin sparkle that makes this skirt so effective though, the longer length lends added elegance and lady like appeal to the silhouette. The material under the sequins contains elastane so it stretches and moves with you (making it easy to walk) while retaining its shape.
Stylists often talk about transitional pieces, what they mean is that by styling an item well it can be worn across the seasons. In autumn I'll be dressing this skirt down with long sleeved breton tops, a denim shirt and trainers then switching to a sweater and knee-length boots when the cold starts to bite. For the winter party season I'll pair it with a classic black silk vest and accessorise with extra diamonds. So you can expect to see this skirt on repeat on the blog. If you want to get your hands on one you're going to have to act fast, it's sold out almost everywhere and I know for a fact that By Malene Birger have sold out, which means it's going to be near impossible for retailers to re-order. Feather & Stitch have limited stock in store and online now. My advice is to size down, the XS is a UK size 10.
The thing I really love about this skirt though... when the light hits it just right, I look like I'm farting sparkles. Parp.
