Crime of Fashion? Elliot Atkinson layered ruffle pirate skirt

Those pesky kids! They’ve gone and TP’d a model again! That SO wasn’t in her contract, you guys…

This wispy pink skirt is by Elliot Atkinson, and if we were being tactful, we would say that it’s feminine and etheral: you know, the kind of thing a woodland nymph, say, might wear.

If we were just being honest, though, we’d say it looks a bit like one of those awful moments when you walk out of the bathroom and stride across the restaurant, totally oblivious to the fact that you’re trailing half a roll of toilet paper after you. Some people pay to look like that, folks. They pay $665 for it. We’re not joking.

Which side are you on: woodland nymph or bathroom accident?

    It’s an accident waiting to happen. Can’t you just imagine catching it on almost anything. And under the abbreviated fisherman knit sweater? Homeless mental patient chic.

      Nah, I’ve never seen a homeless person or a mentally ill patient wearing anything as impractical as this. Runway models or C-grade “stars”, on the other hand…

    It looks like she lost a fight with a cat, a very ticked-off one.

    And what self respecting pirate queen would wear this? Just give your enemies a handle to grab, why don’t cha?
