Let’s talk about the wrap effect. Recently I’ve been drawn to every wrap skirt on the planet. I blame it completely on Isabel Marant’s Kim wrap-effect skirt that I tried on in her London store a couple of weeks ago. It is literally perfection in a skirt. The knot detail on the front 😍, the subtle Prince of Wales check in grey and red 😍 and of course that wrap effect 😍 got me 😍😍😍. Not obsessing at all, right?
However, the wrap effect story doesn’t end with me walking out of the shop with the skirt but without it. I decided to be disciplined and control myself as I’m currently saving for a big fashion investment that will hopefully happen near Christmas time. Plus, I decided to comfort myself with the thought that sooner or later Zara, H&M, Topshop or Mango would come up with a pretty nice version of Marant’s design. That day came pretty quickly when I saw the version I’m sporting here on Storets‘ site. Verdict? I’m in love with this little number. It’s very Marant, the quality is great and I can still see my big fashion investment waiting for me at the end of the tunnel.
