Cockle Shell Skirt
Can't wait to wear it!!!
I just received my skirt last night and it blew me away! It's so much more than I expected. It's beautiful in the photos, but the combination of colour and texture and the little bit of shimmer have to be seen in real life, the photos don't do it justice at all. It is absolutely perfect and I can't wait to wear it!
The fabric is stiffer than I expected from the photos, giving it what I can only describe as 'float'. There's so much movement and the subtle sparkle of the fabric just makes it that much prettier.
I'm 5'7" 165lbs and the size 10 fits perfectly!

My cockle shell skirt arrived not so long ago and it blew me away! It's surprisingly heavy and more poofy than I'd guessed from the pictures, but it's beautiful and has a very floaty gait to it when move around which has bride written all over it.
I'm 5"3 and around 115-20 pounds so I ordered a 4, but could easily have gotten away with a 2. It's longer on me than on the model, skimming an inch or so over the tops of my ankles, but it looks absolutely fine paired up with the right shoes. I'm undecided on whether I'll have it shortened yet but it seems like it'd be easy enough to raise the hem up a few inches.
Better in the flesh than in pictures!

There has never been a skirt like this!
Form fitting yet elegantly full. Cotton casual yet sparkly formal. Perfect.

Photos can't do this beautiful skirt justice. The colors are so subtle yet there is a lot of variety in them; the creamy gray edging, the silver line of sparkle in each stripe of lace, the ivory random lace pattern. This alone is enough to fall in love with. But add that the fit is so flattering and fun to wear. So comfortable. So practical. It would be easy to shorten if you needed to. Even the lining is gorgeous and comfortable.
I'm 5'5", 135 lb.s, the size 8 fits absolutely perfect, just like the model's fits her, even in length which is unusual for my height. NOTHING needs fixing. I'm smitten.
