Reversible Pleats

Thursday, May 03, 2012

I saw this skirt hanging on a rack in my local vintage shop and thought it looked like something that I would love to wear.  With vintage I never really know what will fit me as sizing is just so off from todays sizing (for instance this skirt is labelled a size 16).  I usually just eye ball whatever I pick up and see if it looks like I would fit into it.  I have been wrong though, way wrong and sometimes it just doesn't work out when I put it on.  So remember when in a vintage store and trying on stuff just be PATIENT! This skirt is one of things that worked out perfectly for me.  The fit is really flattering and I love how in between the pleats it shows just a peek of a rose color.  The best part of the skirt is when I got it home I was checking it over closely as I usually always look for things that need to be fixed i.e. loose threads or the odd mark and I discovered that the skirt is reversible.  I couldn't be more pleased, I got two skirts in one! Definitely a score for me!  :)
