I have coveted Jil Sander's maxi flourescent skirt ever since I saw it from its S/S 2011 collection for its minimalistic appeal. On the day that I planned to buy a fabric to DIY it, I guess luck has stirred me to visit a thrift shop and lo and behold, I saw a similar skirt on a rack for less than a dollar! And I guess I would have never finished sewing it myself, if I ever did one, because of my poor sewing skills hahaha. I see myself wearing this on an intimate party with friends and I'm loving the unexpected hint of leg because of its side slit.


How about you lovelies, what do you think of this trend? I would love to hear from you.

p.s my giveaway starts on my next post! stay tuned..


Thanks for reading and your sweet comments as always,
Cherie
