Thrift Inspiration, Carrie Style

As you all know, I'll be opening my Vintage Etsy shop very soon, I am hoping it will be within the next couple of weeks.

One of the main trends for summer is the Midi skirt and in this weeks Grazia they are showcasing the new Whistles version called Carrie which is already being offered on a restricted basis while stocks last-its the It skirt for 2011!!


Gemma Bunston, Whistles designer and creator of the Carrie skirt-the Midi version is £110

I am really pleased to see the pleated Midi in trend, as this skirt below will be featured in my Etsy shop. Its a vintage Frank Usher and the colourings of it will prove to be very versatile and stylish as it can be worn as a summer piece or with boots and a black sweater and jacket for winter:

Vintage Frank Usher Midi Pleated Skirt, £35

It just shows how trends come full cycle!!

The skirt is a modern size 10 and fits my model perfectly, who like me is a size 10 too!!

I so hope it will go to a new home-if anyone is genuinely interested in it before it goes in the shop, send me an email and you could be the lucky owner of this gorgeous skirt!!

Yours is way more fabulous than that Whistles one! Looks gorgeous with the belt, too.
Are you opening your shop before 23rd April? If so let me wish you loads of love and luck in advance. xxx

I love pleats skirts! I have a couple of them that I purchased about 10 years ago!
Best of luck with the opening of your store!!!!!!

I love that Carrie skirt, but it is quite a lot of money! Yours is the better deal by far xx

Oooh lovely, good luck! (I'll add you on etsy as soon as I have sorted it!)

Winnie said...

The Whistles one is lovely as is the one that you found too! I wish I could wear midi skirts, they're so lovely but not the right length on me at all!

Haute World said...

i saw some very stylish ladies rocking this trend today. Not sure if I could pull it off though (perhaps if I paired it with heels), but I adore the floral number you featured here!

Dear Sharon, what a lovely skirt. That style doesn't suit me unfortunately but I'm sure it'll be snapped up.

I'm looking forward to your shop, I think it's brilliant you're doing it. I still haven't got to the post office! I will though!! Time keeps running away with me. Have a good day, Love C xx

Please may I? said...

Wishing ou loads of luck for your shop launch. I know you will do great.

I have that Whistles skirt - the Topshop was not great after one wear! I've got it in taupe though xx

Pearl Westwood said...

The Carrie skirt is pretty, but who want the same skirt everyone else will have and it is so over priced! I would much rather have a vintage one anyday x

I'm quite enamoured with this trend and think both skirts are beautiful... but why do they call it the 'twitter fashion trend' I wonder.

WendyB said...

Yours looks great with the belt.

Kavery said...

I love Etsy so will certainly love visiting your shop. The skirt is a gorgeous piece.

Hi everyone-thanks so much for your support and fabulous comments, they are all so much appreciated!! xxxx

Long skirts are in trend right now, I wish I could wear them, but I'm too short to pull off a ankle length skirt. I like what you found, I think the pleats in the skirt makes it more interesting, then just a plain long maxi skirt.
