Be bold, be bright!

Reiss Danielle IN THE PRESS...

Everyone, meet Danielle, Danielle, meet everyone.

Reiss has decided to name this fabulous skirt 'Danielle', so I thought it rude to not introduce her by name! 

This maxi skirt ticks my boxes for so many reasons. To name but a few:
  1. The colour. The rich reddy/corally shade is both utterly wearable and incredibly fashionable in equal measure. Bright colours swamped the S/S11 catwalks, and I can promise you that this skirt would have fitted right in alongside big names like Jil Sander and Christopher Kane. 
  2. The length. I stand at a (some would say measly) 5ft5, so I have to keep a close eye on skirt length. Too short and well, I just look trashy (but that applies at any height!) and anything that falls in the mid-calf region makes me look like a long-lost member of the seven dwarves! So for best results, I stick to either mid-thigh or down to the ground. Plus, maxi's hide a multitude of sins...
At £110 from Reiss, this skirt is a great find for the high street. The sizes do seem to come up a little large, I bought a size 6 and i'd usually plump for an 8. I wore it last weekend, when my boyfriend and I spent a sunny Sunday afternoon pottering around Bath. I kept the rest of the outfit super-simple. A plain black tee with a long, gold, geometric necklace and some black pumps with gold details. Oh, and of course, my fave Chanel sunnies!

Much love,
