I treated myself to a new skirt at the weekend. Nothing unusual there, except for the fact that this particular skirt is the first maxi skirt I have bought since about 1994. This time, I won't be wearing it with fake Dr Martens and chunky socks, though. It's not something I'd normally go for, but I couldn't resist the pattern (to me it looks like insect legs, which appeals to the biologist in me) and I was also so surprised that something in a "normal" range was long enough for me that I just couldn't leave it on the shelf for someone else to snap up!
I got it in the Dorothy Perkins sale and it cost £10 - a bargain, I think you'll agree. I'm wearing it now with a loose-fitting pussy bow top from Gap and my favourite long navy Topshop cardigan. I love it.
