I fell in-love with this skirt the very first time I laid eyes on it on Sara at You, Me & Anthropologie here. I knew right away, that I MUST have this skirt.
I love whimsical, unusual, different things. I love the look of Antique clock faces. I knew that I would be hard pressed to find another skirt like this, anywhere. So my mission began.
Knowing that I was going to be going to Seattle for the day, I called ahead to find out if they had the skirt and yes, indeed, they did. I got them to put it on hold for me so that I could try it on during my visit.
It was the very first thing I tried on yesterday and it didn't disappoint. It's stunning! It's fabulous! It's so me! I'm going to known as the girl with the clock skirt. People will say, hey, that's the girl with the clock skirt. I wonder where she got that fantastic skirt from. And I'll smile to myself because only you and I know exactly where it came from. Isn't it fabulous?
As far as fit is concerned, I normally wear between a size 4 or 6 at Anthropologie. In this Floreat skirt, I'm wearing a size 6 and the 6 fits like a glove. I tried the 4 on and it was a tad uncomfortable. So as to give you a better idea, I have a 29 inch waist (before eating, that is - for it expands exponentially after I eat). And since the skirt is full and poofy, there was no concern of fit in the hips.
The skirt is lined with a full hem topped with netting to give it extra poof. It also has a metal zipper. The waist band is 2" high and the skirt is gathered all around the waist. I like how the skirt is gathered. It's neither too full nor too flat. There's just the perfect amount of poof to bell-out the skirt and accentuate the waist.
I had originally thought that the clocks were printed on the skirt. They're not. They are actually embroidered on the skirt, together with the faces, numbers and hands.
It's darling! And at $118, I thought that it was priced well. I am normally a sale shopper - so for me to buy this skirt at full price is saying a lot about this skirt.
I love it! And I hope my awesome reader and newest friend Carly loves it too!
Since it hasn't shown up on the website, just in case anyone is looking for this skirt, the style number is: 18813535 (and that's for a size 4 - coz I'm reading it right off Carly's size 4 skirt that I had picked up for her yesterday). The size 6 style number is: 18813543.
Needless to say, it's come to live with me.... because I'm going to be known as the Girl with the Clock Skirt.
Have you tried this skirt on? What do you think of it?
