Max Factor

They say if you keep something long enough it will come back into fashion - and here's proof.
I bought this skirt in 2004 from Dorothy Perkins.
Today I went into Dorothy Perkins and saw an almost identical version - take a look here.
I have around three of these long tiered skirts - one in pink and another in black.
And as you can see I have worn them when they weren't bang on trend.
I feel like one of those sad runners who gets lapped in a race.
Depending on how you look at it they are so far behind they're ahead!

Today I wore:
Shoe s- Clarks
Skirt - Dorothy Perkins
Vest - Gap
Scarf - Betty Jackson


  1. Hi there-a perfect outfit for the weather we're having, so stylish and certainly bang on trend! Have a great Sunday!

  2. I love outifts like this: not fussy yet put together. Great scarf, too! :)

  3. skirt looks great, good that you kept hold of it! I regret selling many things on ebay!

  4. You look fabulous today!

  5. Great looking outfit on a great looking person.... love this look friend.

  6. Hahah, I love your analogy!
    I guess that is the benefit of being a pack rat, and the sad truth of fashion.

    The only thing that is new is what has been forgotten.

    Chic on the Cheap

  7. And sadly I remember buying something very similar in about 1987. That makes me a very sad, old runner.

  8. Hahaha, cute analogy. You look gorgeous in all white, might I add...


  9. may the blessing be always with you!! ...............................

  10. I LOVE this look - and in all white?! Even better! You look spot on trend, now :)

  11. I really think these long skirts have become a classic. Yes, sometimes more in the news than other times but never totally out of style in warm climates.


  12. This is so true...
    Loved the comparison ! I am one of those way in the back.
    Skirt looks lovely ....... I have a THING for white !

  13. I keep loads of my clothes and still wear them (like you said even when there not bang on trend anymore) and am wearing a skirt similar to the one you are wearing here, today, from when the whole gypsy theme was in around 2003!

    Great look on you btw!
