Today's post is all about my favorite midi skirt inspired by spring blossoms. Midi skirts are huge right now, and a UK brand called Chicwish has a great selection of them for incredibly reasonable prices. I love their clothes because they have some really unique items in different prints that you might not be able to find in the US. The only caveat is that as with most European brands, their clothes run extremely small. I made the mistake of ordering a medium and had to take it to a tailor to put in an extra panel of fabric for me. I'm normally about a size 6, and will definitely order a large skirt next time. Where our clothes are vanity sized to account for larger people, European brands tend to use traditional sizing. The quality of the fabric is great for the price, just make sure you size up from the size that you actually are.

Speaking of having items tailored, I've only ever had a few things sized to fit me exactly before, but man is it worth the money. After completely busting the zipper trying to make it work, I took my skirt to Gizzelle James in Midtown Atlanta. Gizzelle is really more than just a seamstress. She designs custom wedding gowns and bespoke pieces as well, but can she tailor a skirt. She did such a beautiful job that I'm sure I'll never take anything I care about to anyone but her. I also completely fell in love with her shop and would live on the antique sofa in her fitting room if she'd let me.

Have a great week!
