Trick or Treat?

The perfect party skirt has to be the jewel in the crown this party-hopping season, acting like a human Christmas tree, catching the sparkle and reflecting back the smiles and giddy moments.  In the haute spot is Burberry with their mermaid inspired work of art – enough to make the most bah-humbug joy-squasher gimlet eyed with misty desire..


Also working in the skirt corner is the ability to mix the well-heeled refined with the everyday low: tactile jumpers or denim or even t-shirts on top….contrasting the glittering below..cocktail mixes of opposites that create a long drink of inherently cool pleasure..


Sequins just too eighties? How about the pared back elegance that is metallic leather? Easily teamed with white when the sun comes out again, this Maje skirt will even carry you on a silver ray of light all the way through to summer..

And don’t forget the high street  – if red wine and dancing on the tables are your party tricks of choice, maybe fake is the way to go..

But faux or real, trick or treat..the choice is yours..

    I saw the first skirt when I was noodling around for a post I am writing about Burberry. Gorgeous, isn’t it! The second skirt is as lovely and perhaps more versatile. LOVE!

      Each season I think how could I just choose one item? And then something materialises..for me, it’s this skirt..and Peter Pilotto..the cape coat..I’m going to watch the sales in Jan…just in case… xxx

    Each year I promiss myself to make a ‘Christmes special’ skirt or dress .. these are great ideas. I think I will start already in January – maybe then I finish it on time 😉
