I found this little gem while digging through the bargains at the Barney’s Warehouse Sale in Los Angeles over the weekend. I had never tried anything from Rag & Bone before, but when I found this high waisted pencil skirt in size 24, it looked like it ran really small. Sure enough, this skirt fits like a glove!
This skirt fits perfectly everywhere, but of course it’s meant to be knee length, so it’s quite a bit too long on me. I prefer skirts that hit at the knee. The best part about this skirt is the details. The fabric is a soft, thin wool blend and it is fully lined. A look on the inside of the skirt reveals beautiful construction. And just look at those great pocket and back slit details! Swoon!
This makes me very excited! I’ve always enjoyed the menswear and equestrian influences in the Rag & Bone women’s RTW. If Rag & Bone tends to run small, this may very well be my new favorite designer brand! I will be investigating this further!
So, now my next adventure is to get the skirt hemmed to fit knee length, and hopefully without ruining the fun pleat details along the bottom hem. Wish me luck!
