River Island gold embroidered skater skirts

River Island skirts River Island have been doing a great line in skater skirts this season. We featured some of their scuba skirts in our neoprene roundup last week, but it’s this gold textured number that really has our fingers hovering over the “buy now” button. The basic shape of these skirts is, as we’ve mentioned numerous times now, an all-time favourite of ours, being one of those easy-to-wear shapes which you can dress up, dress down, dress any way you want, basically. We wouldn’t go so far as to say it will work for everyone (We don’t think there are many items of clothing THAT good), but River Island have certainly done their bit to make this skirt work…

GALLERY |Topshop Unique A/W 2013 collection

The autumn/winter 2013 Topshop Unique collection hit stores and sites this morning, and already some of the key items have started to sell out (If you have your heart set on one of those pink coats that are oh-so-trendy this season, then we’re afraid you’re going to have to look elsewhere: the version by Unique was gorgeous, but it was gone within hours, sadly…), so we figured we’d better take a quick look at the collection before it’s gone for good.

We think we’ll just stick with “Macey”, though, if it’s all the same with you. As you’ve probably guessed from the first part of that mouthful of a name, Macey here is an environmentally friendly soul. To quote Net-a-Porter: “As conscientious as it is chic, Erdem’s duchesse-satin dress is crafted from an eco-friendlyNewlife™ fabric, blended with a touch of silk. This elegant, full-skirted style is hand-finished with OEKO-TEX® approved lace and fully lined for comfort. We love the delicate floral embroidery.” We particularly liked that last line. They’re all, “Save the world, the environment is important, blah blah, OOH! FLORALS!” And don’t…
