Some of you already know that thanks to previous reviews in this wonderful community I discovered In The Starlight and immediately fell for this skirt:ITS Gingham Skirt
Of course I bought it immediately per PayPal (on 01/011/07), as US$55 including shipping is really a good price.
For some reason PayPal put in my old address so I had to send an e-mail with the correct one *sigh*.
Leah replied the same day saying she would make sure to send this to the right addres and contact me again once the skirt was on its way, which she estimated to take about a week. That e-mail arrived on 09/11/07 and the skirt itself arrived today.
As already mentioned here before by other reviewers, my skirt also arrived folded in a box but since the box itself was sturdy I didn't mind that there was no extra bag or "stuffing". After all those things just add to the final price and are thrown away anyway.
The material of the skirt is lightweight and a bit see-through (without making a cheap impression), but nothing a good petticoat cannot fix. It also does not feel like Ill have to iron the hell out of it. I love the shape, it is exactly what I have been looking for and looks decent even with my half-assed petticoat. I have decided to get a better one though. Maybe from ITS ^__^. Only points of criticism: the waistband. It could have done with some kind of reinforcement, it keeps folding over/ rolling down. And some loops to put the skirt on a hanger would have been nice.
I'll definitely buy from Leah again though once I see something I really like.
According to the website the skirt is 19" long but mine is actually 18" including the waistband... might have to do with my size though (24" waist) and you can order a different length free of charge (Oh yeah? How about floor length then? :-P).
I did not take a picture of the box or the skirt in the box because I trust everyone can imagine what that looks like. However, since there are quite a few pictures coming here's a nice little cut:( Collapse )
That's all folks, thanks for being awesome!
Oh, I think somebody's got a mirror to clean! *blush*
