It photographs so beautifully.

This skirt was my favourite piece from the runway, there's something very cool and special about it. I love the weaved metallic fabric and the loose tulip shape, it's one of those pieces that are works of art.

I'm wearing the size 36 which is pretty huge- what I did is take in the buttons at the waist because I didn't wanna do a huge alteration (or rather, the very funny alterations lady firmly objected "This is fashion daaahling, it looks gaaaawgeous on you. The darts are perfectly placed I cannot alter them. If we hem it here you won't like it, see? It's not DRIES anymore! It's any other skirt!) Right. It's these kind of characters who convince you on an item, truly, they are so passionate it's contagious.

I really really want to wear please stop raining!! What kind of shoes would you guys wear with this? Other than the matching court shoes which look exquisite but are not practicable for day-to-day walking around town. I'm thinking something that looks edgy and contrasting but still good...Some kind of ankle boot I guess, I just don't know if I own anything suitable.

And no Dries is complete without my favourite dark red lip! Serious but soooo cool.

There's such a huge selection of metallic skirts right now- midi, pencil skirts, mirrored, nylon, metallic leather (so much of this!), jacquard metallic (my personal favourite).
