[Advent] Take a Midi to the Max...

If there is one look that defined 2013 for me it's the midi skirt.  I never in a million years thought they would suit my short and stubby 5 foot 3 self, but I tested it out with a Topshop buy over the summer and have been hooked ever since. I spotted this Miu Miu skirt at work and it's exactly the kind of thing I want for 2014... 


I'll be pairing mine with simple wool jumpers in winter and tights, then tees for spring - it really is the most diverse fashion item in the world ever. After realising the style suits me, I'm keen to invest in one like the above - you just can't beat a quality fabric piece when it comes down to it. Either let the skirt do the talking and wear a printed/bright one, or buy one in a basic grey/neutral and team with something with a little more life to it.  They're super flattering from all shapes as they come in at the waists and skim over bums and tums... If you're still a bit unsure, test it out with this one from ASOS first for £20.


If you're struggling for something different to buy the girl who has everything, I'm very biased but Vestiaire Collective could be an answer for you.  Buy them a gift voucher and let them choose their own designer item, up to 70% off. This year I've sold loads of stuff (some bits still up for grabs here) and then invested the cash into buying a couple of things like Acne blazers, Kenzo tees and a pair of Louboutins.  Basically Vestiaire Collective is as useful for raising funds as it is my Achilles heel...
