I’ve been after a A-Line Button Front Skirt for SO long. I just couldn’t find any which fit my awkward hips well enough… Until now. This little number from Glamorous was purchased in the Affleck Palace branch of my favourite Manchester shop-of-kitsch, Thunderegg. I’d not been in Thunderegg for ages because every time I pop in I end up splurging needlessly. This time was no different. I casually spotted this mustard colour, cord effect, button up skirt; tried it on, parted with £24.50.
The material is slightly stretchy, which makes it a touch more forgiving than the other, more rigid, button up skirts I’ve tried on. I am a bit ‘aware’ that the buttons are ‘popper’ style, much like those mint trackies you used to wear back in t’day. So I am sitting down with caution incase they decide to do a bit of a stripped move on me and reveal my pants.
Teamed with these surprisingly good quality over the knee boots from ‘Sammydress’ (here) for £12 it would have been hard to complain even if they were rubbish – but they’re actually really comfortable and just as good quality as my other knee high boots I got from Primark last year. Okay, maybe Primark isn’t the best comparison for quality of footwear, as it can be hit and miss. But they’re good quality Primark quality, you know what I mean.
Thrown on with the skirt and simple £4 top from Primark, I’ve got myself my new favourite outfit.
