Love It Or Leave It: The Midi Skirt

One of the biggest trends heading into this fall is the midi skirt. (Get it? Not maxi, not mini, but mid-length--took me a while to figure that one out.)

Fred Flare Skirt Beats Anthropologie Style At Half The Price

We've had a thing for this Anthropologie skirt (left) for a while now. The bright colors are alluring, the shape is flattering, and we just want it, dammit. A rather unattractive price tag, however, has held us back. That, after all, is not the sort of skirt you can wear all the time…

Dear Topshop: Skirt Slits Are Awesome

Dearest Topshop, We have a problem. Lately, I have purchased several skirts and dresses from your store. I love them. They are all adorable, fit perfectly, and have quickly become go-to items.
