This skirt surprised the heck out of me when it rocked up in LTS's latest mail-out. I've always, in the back of my mind, wanted a skirt that is so screamingly bright I could use it as a source of lighting in dark pubs. And lo, here it is.
I know I keep coming back to Long Tall Sally on DS, but that's because, for all its faults, it's the only shop on the high street that really makes an effort with tall girls, and doesn't just tack on a few inches to normal-sized clothing (*cough* TOPSHOP *cough*)
I asked Twitter if there was any particular reason not to buy a midi skirt entirely covered in sequins. "HELLO! NONE!" came the reply from the girls. "What the f&$%'s a midi skirt?" asked the boys.
I duly bought the skirt.
It looks so incredibly silvery in the picture that I was a bit worried about looking like a disco ball, but on arrival, it turns out to be a very striking gun metal grey. It's fun, distilled into clothing. It's also incredibly long, even for a midi skirt, and even on a very long-limbed girl like me, so better to wear it with heels unless you want to look like you are walking on hams.
I got my skirt at a discount (£56 rather than £70) using a code from the LTS newsletter. Bang.
