remember when skirts over pants / trousers were a thing? i’m not talking about last year or whenever when vogue tried to bring them back and we all ignored them. i mean in the late 90s when you used to be able to buy ‘skirts’ sewn on to pants. for, like, $15 in the ‘workwear’ department at kmart or something. eww, shudder, foul, I KNOW.
but also FOUL and FRUSTRATING is how it is nigh impossible to find dresses / skirts at any length other than that shown above. okay; i love these dresses, all of them. and if i could, i would totally wear them (you know i would). but i TOTALLY can’t. they are just WAY TOO SHORT, even that last one. even with leggings or, dare i say, trousers underneath. because i am quite tall – almost 5’10” – and er, quite un-gazelle / giselle like.
i also couldn’t wear any of those shoes; see the 5’10” bit and then multiply that by extreme clumsiness / uncoordination (yes, i know that’s not a real word), but that’s another story.
still: props to peter pilotto because despite my personal gripes this collection is ace.
