The Sell Out Skirt


Every get one of those moments where you go to check and see if something is online, when you know it won't be in stock but you just go and look anyway, and then find out that it is in fact in stock, and it's never been in stock when you've checked before, and you know it's about to sell out any second now, so you just buy it there and then without even thinking? No? Just me?




Well, as you've probably already guessed, that's what happened with me and this skirt. I came across it on Instagram earlier this year and I knew it was sold out but I was also a bit apprehensive on the price as, to be quite honest, I don't usually spend a large amount on clothing. At £140 (plus shipping and tax), this was a bit of a splurge for me. But I knew it was something I would get a lot of wear out of and I knew I'd regret it if I didn't get it and it sold out again.

Upon arrival I was surprised to see how minimal the skirt was. I would even go as far as to say I was sliiiiiightly disappointed. The cut on the waist seems a little odd and it's VERY simple. I mean, there's no zip it's just an elastic band waistline and no lining at all, but I guess that's the Realisation Par vibe and the 100% silk does the talking really. I went for a size M, being a usual 10/12 and it fits perfectly (which I was glad to find as I was not looking forward to sending it back to the USA). Although I do need to put it on over my head rather than pulling it up...

  1. I love it too! It was a struggle to buy, it kept selling out so fast but I was glad to finally get one. I wish it had a zip too. I have it in XS and while it fits perfectly, I slip it on over my head to get it on.

  2. This skirt is my favourite! I would love to add this one to my wardrobe but I think I'll have to just stick with something similar for the moment, so many good suggestions!
