Flash



.... ah ahh. Saviour of the Universe!  

Sorry, it's just when I say flash, the rest of that immortal line comes out. 

I did the school run in this outfit this morning and as I rounded the corner of the street, I was already regretting wearing this dratted skirt. Basically, it rides up. If it wasn't for the fact that I was pulling it down literally every two steps, I would have been flashing my front bits at the rest of the school brigade. I bet that's not something on the curriculum! Anyway, that was a pretty pants start to the morning considering I had such high hopes for the skirt as it reminded me a little of the Alexander Wang twist jersey skirts which I've always rather liked.

So I looked out for my friend who sometimes offers me a lift home when she sees me walking (she knows that walking and I are not at one) but she'd gone off like a shot this morning ... so I shuffled  slowly home. 

Anyway, you have been warned and I changed in to my joggy bots for the rest of the day as I was severely traumatised by the event. Basically, don't go there ... unless you're an exhibitionist and you've had a Brazilian.

  1. Funny!! I like the look of those skirts too, but now I know not to go there. Standing still you look great. x

    1. It might be just me but it just kept going up and up and up! I ended up pulling it down over my knees at one point to give me a bit of extra time before the next readjustment!

  2. So will we see a remodelled version of the skirt when you've had the sewing machine out or has it been consigned to the bin ;-)

    1. If I was in sunnier climes and not on the school run, it might be do-able. As it is, I think it's going to my god-daughter!

    1. I couldn't get the dratted thing off fast enough. When you're standing in front of the mirror, it looks fine. But a few metres down the road and its a different story. Pfft.

  6. Haha. I have a similar asymmetrical grey one from HoF which I only wear in autumn/winter with opaques and boots to avoid flashing ;).

    1. I don't think this skirt is going to stay - everyone says theirs have been a nightmare so I think that's telling me something. Shame as I love the design.

  7. This made me giggle! I had a similar style skirt from Mango, which safe to say I wore once and had exactly the same problem! Too much tugging down and it was consigned to the charity pile x

    1. Ha! Noted. It's not just me. I think mine will have to find a new home with someone who has better legs.

  8. You nutter! Yes I can see why the skirt may cause a problem or two! Got the Flash theme tune stuck in my head now (I was so in love with him when I was very young - just wanted to be Dale Arden!) x

    1. Do you know, I still remember an episode where there was some kind of vampire in it which could go through spaceship doors. That's how bad I can be affected by stuff like that. #wuss.

    1. Yup, I do. And they have been covered up again. I like skirts as much as you really Helen but I'm trying my best.

  10. Lol! Kind of glad I tried this and returned before it has the chance to ride up on me too Sue!! :0) xx

  11. I've had a skirt just like that and it went in the charity bag immediately! What a shame because it looks ace!

    1. Another one which went in the charity bag. Such a brilliant but bad design!

  12. Oh I hate that thing where you find something you really love, only to discover that when you actually try to move in it, it's a whole different kettle of fish. You look great standing still in it though! xx

    1. I can't believe how bad this was. It might be okay for a summer holiday when it feels better to get the legs out but not in my little village.
