I blame jola for this, because she's been posting clicky-links of awesome skirts, but I am starting to think about adding some long skirts back into wardrobe rotation. (If you listen, you can hear the Stroppy One cheering, because he thinks my long skirts are far more elegant than my usual knee-length ones. He thinks the knee-length skirts are cute, but long ones are elegant, and he loves elegant.)
So! When the weather becomes a bit more autumnal, I may pull some of my long skirts (and petticoats!) out of retirement. Plus I can wear my knee-length skirts *over* the longer skirts, for extra flounce! However, the new skirts I'm ogling:
The "Tigris" skirt and the "Petticoat Asinina" from Somnia Romantica. Actually, I want everything from this store. EVERYTHING.
The Gloria di Notte skirt by kambriel. Look at that fabric! ::swoons::
The Gothic Aristocrat chiffon skirt from Retroscope Fashions.
I would wear this over another skirt, of course. But it's too small for my hips, and Dark Fusion Boutique doesn't offer it in a larger size. Woe!
Oh, and fellow Eldergoths: remember those long black lace skirts we all had in the 90s? The broomstick skirts that were full enough to wear over a petticoat (if you removed the inner liner/slip)? They live in the "vintage" section on Etsy, and almost all of them are tagged with the "grunge" keyword. Some with descriptions of Can be worn as a strapless minidress!!! ;) This pains me.
