This is my new skirt from Collectif, which I got in their recent 50% sale. I’m really glad I got it for 50% off. First off, it’s too big. Collectif don’t have size charts on a lot of their stuff, so I just took a chance and got the size I usually get (size 20 UK/18 NZ/16 US). I even checked out one of their other skirts that does have a size chart, and that size seemed to be the way to go. But no, the waist is far too big. In fact, I probably could have gone a whole size smaller, since it is quite stretchy.
Second of all, it has a side zipper which, like side zippers on dresses, I think should be outright banished. It’s bulgy and makes the skirt hang weirdly, but luckily a belt and cardigan cover that up. Still, urgh.
However, the saving grace of this skirt is the flamingo - so fucking cute! Really, all things should come with embroidery flamingoes, in my humble opinion.
