Full skirts are one of my favorite things in the world. Before I had even the slightest interest in clothes, I recall seeing a photo of Dior’s “New Look”. I remember admiring how beautiful it was and how I wished I were one of the women who had been lucky enough to wear it. For a very long time I thought full skirts were something that didn’t suit my figure (mostly because I grew up feeling embarrassed of my legs, and full skirts only emphasized them), but I’m now seeking them out more and more.
This skirt is part of the new Miss Wu collection from Jason Wu. I loved the neutral color-blocking, full-silhouette, and of course…pockets! The presence of pockets is now a heavy consideration when I’m looking to purchase skirts and dresses. No pockets…no thanks.
Miss Wu is currently only available at Nordstrom, and many sizes, including most in this skirt, sold out the first day. I was lucky enough to snag this skirt before it sold out online, with the intention “just to see”, and am really glad I did! The construction and details are well done, and the fabric is thick and substantial. All and all, it’s a very well done piece and fun addition to my wardrobe. Added bonus…no alterations needed. =)
This skirt has since been restocked in most sizes & I’ve also seen them at my local Nordstrom store.
