ACE OF SPADES



Metallics are a big thing this A/W, whatever high street store I'm in I can instantly find a metallic item of clothing that I lust after (even Primark are killing it!). But I would never have dreamt of buying any of the metallic items that I loved, until I saw this pleated midi skirt... At first I loved it but wouldn't even try it on because it wasn't my thing. But a few weeks later I returned and thought 'you know what, I'll give it a go!' and I instantly fell in love with it. 

I also instantly knew what I would pair with this skirt, a band tee. I did picture it with a dark grey or black tee but after wandering around for a while I found this beautiful Motorhead tee, I also have the same one but with a Black Sabbath print on it, and it suited it so well. I thought with a choker and some form of chunky boot would give it a 'rough around the edge' look. 


Overall, I love this look. I felt quite self conscious when I first went out in public with it, but everybody loved it. I know with this skirt I can dress it up for special occasions too. I only have one problem with this skirt, the elastic around the waist is quite small. So despite me sizing up I have to put it on over my head, instead of the usual way!
