I grabbed these two skirts right before going into the dressing room. They weren’t really on my radar for purchasing but I want to share how these look IRL on me.

~ Laser-Cut Skirt, Dusty Alabaster, size 6 ~
The style of this skirt is similar to a favorite of mine, the Pleated Lattice Skirt. The front wide waist area does not have the lattice-work on it though. The pleating on the lower section is similar as well as the fit. The skirt does fit in the size 6 but I would feel more comfortable in the size 8 (not one to try on). The color isn’t all that great for me either. I’m not really a pink fan but I loved the Distressed Quartz of the Pleated Lattice Skirt since it was little darker pink and still flattering on my skin tone.  

The laser-cut looks more like perforations than laser-cuts to me. I think the laser-cuts should have been made to look like diamonds or another shape instead of dots all over. The material is poly, though from a distance I thought it was pleather.

~ Metallic Pleated Midi Skirt, Navy, size 8 ~
I wanted to love the Metallic Pleated Midi Skirt. But without or with “heels” I just can’t get the hemline to raise just a little. I just don’t think Midi Skirts are flattering on me. I feel dumpy and really short in them, even when I have heels on. So I just stay away from them altogether. This is one of those trends that doesn’t want my participation. 

Another foot of material and this would be a maxi skirt for me. The size 8 was the best fit for me. I vary between a 6 and 8 depending on the style of the skirt and the waistband. This one has no give so a size 8 works. If you are between sizes, go with your larger size.

Shiny with the flash but not as much IRL.

If you can wear a Midi Skirt, Yay for you! I recommend this one. I think it will go with a lot of items and the metallic is a different sheen to play with.

Have a Great Evening!
