Lovely Mistakes

Skirt? c/o eShakti  Shoes? L.A.M.B. (similar but more walkable here and here...
Sweater? BCBG (old and worn backwards) Necklace? Vintage Clutch? My Oma's


Of course, I make an off hand comment about not wanting to see chevron again for a very long time and then I look down mid day sometime this weekend and realize I have a chevron skirt on. In my defense, I see this skirt more as having a diamond pattern, not a chevron pattern; it's all about the interpretation...
I guess the interpretation of this skirt was a little up in the air when I ordered it as well. I have to be honest and say that while I actually ended up loving this skirt, it was not exactly what I ordered. eShakti offers the possibility of customizing their products and when they offered me a customized item, I chose to add a few inches to the length of this skirt and remove the black ribbon trim around the hem.  I got the extra length... and I still got the trim as well. The hem is also wavy (note: second last picture) because it is a full circle skirt and the pattern makers obviously didn't take into account that the cross grain on a full circle skirt will often drop a few inches. And I like the trim, I even like the wavy hem and the skirt is super flattering (if we are going on the number of real life compliments... #humblebrag, #ughiusedahashtaginapost) but it's not how it is supposed to be. Especially the wavy hem (a big production mistake) is not one you would expect from a company that sells a plethora of full skirts.
So that's my honest review. Not exactly what I ordered and expected but a pretty accident none-the-less... Especially on a windy day...

It's too bad they effed the skirt up, but you made it look lovely anyway! And I'm totally digging the surprise of the backless (backward) sweater.

can you actually walk in those shoes in real life? or just for this photo shoot? they make me actually cringe in imagined pain! props.

Seriously amazing outfit!!

My Edit said...

Sarah vP- These shoes are the worst purchase ever. All fashion, no function... I will never be this dumb again. They don't hurt but they aren't so stable for the old ankles so I always keep a pair of extra shoes on hand for distances:) Again, not such a wise purchase...

gorgeous skirt! but yeah I agree, it's frustrating when things are not as advertised. Love the backwards sweater.

I AM DYING OVER HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS THAT I SOUND LIKE A SORORITY GIRL. This is such a sexy outfit without being hooker-like, you've achieved the impossible! I like the extra length of the skirt, great choice even though they didn't really deliver what you ordered, it is so cute nonetheless and it looks perfect on you.
