Style on Trial: Antipodium Don’t Sleeve Me Skirt

Shirt-skirt

These are tough financial times, folks. In fact, the economic situation is getting so dire we feel there’ll soon be no choice but to start tying a couple of shirts around our waists and calling them a “skirt”, in a bid to beat the credit crunch.

Or, of course, we could just forget that, and spend $320 on two shirts that have ALREADY been tied together to create a skirt. It won’t get you quite as many brownie points from the Frugal Fairies, of course, but it’ll save you getting the sewing machine out.

Then again, you COULD just save your money altogether, and not bother with the whole “shirts-as-skirt” scenario. Unless you like this look of course? Do you? And if so, do you like it enough to spend the $320 on it (you can buy it here, if so), or would you rather just steal the shirts from yr boyfriend and DIY?

    The skirt doesn’t really look that bad for me. But I wouldn’t buy it for two reasons:
    a) The belt reminds me too much to an old shirt.
    b) I wouldn’t spend $320 on THAT skirt.

    Reminds me of those fake long-sleeved shirts underneath t-shirts that were around in the 90s.

    Maybe… If we were in 1990. Nah! Not even back then. That “skirt” is just stupid.

    I could see the right girl pulling this skirt off, making it loot cute, hip, and clever. But paying $320 for it is just dumb.

    I’d raid my dad’s closet and make my own little crafty skirt if I wanted this look…but I don’t :).

    Two shirts sewn together makes a surprisingly cute hemline. But those shirts, with sleeves is ridiculous, and the price makes it more so.
    however DIY might be in my future. Because I love knee length cotton skirts.
    Also, why are my comments ‘center’ aligned? I’m not doing it on purpose.
