Layers : A Skirt Over a Dress


I had sort of a "eureka!" movement as I was pulling out skirts from my closet this morning and pondering how to deal with this pesky and problematic skater crossbones skirt....I'm going to layer it over a skater dress. I was happy when my experiment worked! Yippie!


Problems with the crossbones skirt; slightly too big on me, very short, cotton and clingy, not to mention that fact that the skirt is strangely not cut like a circle. So, over a lace skater dress it went which created a layered effect that I quite enjoy. All those years of layering and styling my neo-Victorian club outfits helped me with this brainstorm! 

Need to wash my hair=hat day. Hehe!

Not all problematic pieces can be solved, but when it comes to something that I really like, then I try to work with it. Luckily this skirt made a use for itself as I was going to send it to Madame Guillotine (aka my scissors) to be repurposed into something else. You're lucky skirt, real lucky. *Wink*

Thank you for reading!

  3. Thank you for posting this! I love layering and I have a inverted cross skirt just like your bones skirt. Clingy and way too short. I had no idea how to wear it and if I did wear it I feared the risk of the world seeing my bottom. And I also have a hat just like yours! I think it is Children of the Corn chic.

    1. Glad I could give you some inspiration as your skirt sounds too cute not to wear (but I totally understand wanting your bottom covered!). Hahahaha, Children of the Corn chic, I LOVE IT!!!

  6. I love doing this, because I have sooo many lovely little skirts, but I'm far too self conscious to really wear them without layering them, heh.
    There are off chances I actually do... but very rarely.

    Anyway. I completely love the look!

  10. Perfect solution! And it makes a fabulous outfit!
    I often pass up cute skirts because they're too short. I need to keep layering in mind!
