Oh, how dramatic, how artsy, how…on earth would I wear this in everyday life?
TBH, I’m not sure I’d include the headpiece if I wore this to work, but I reckon the rest is all office-proof. The simplistic colour palette of black and red makes this look really striking, of course with a little help from all the drama the skirt is bringing. It’s got a lot going on with the ruffles, floor length nature, rose print AND smocked waist. As far as skirts go, it’s an over achiever for sure.
I’ve added hair extensions to the ponytail, hence the weird addition of a headscarf around the pony. I was trying to hide a multitude of sins… I should look for a subtler way of hiding the clips really! Online, the headband looked like it had blooms on each side rather than all the way around the head. That would have created a more interesting shape around my head, but with the flowers on top I do get a little extra height which should never be complained about!
