shirt - lacoste, skirt - sisley, belt - vintage, shoes - primark
This outfit is brought to you by it's-too-cold-to-leave-the-house-itus. The skirt is another Sisley item I purchased online recently, and again it is just ever so slightly too big. After being too lazy to send it back and order the next size down I have decided that I am going to get it tailored so it fits my waist perfectly. I have way too many items that are nearly perfect but not quite in my wardrobe, and they always end up staying on the hanger.
It feels silly to spend probably a third as much again as the skirt cost in the first place, especially as I just should have really sent it back, but it's too late now and I'd rather a more expensive skirt that I wear all the time than a slightly less expensive one I hardly wear at all. My drycleaners has done some alterations and mending for me before, and they are rally good so I know my skirt will be in good hands.
Have you ever had an item of clothing tailored to you, and do you think it was worth it?
