So, the skirt I ordered from American Apparel came - the first thing I've ever ordered online - and well, it was...perfect. The fabric, as expected, was not top-notch, but it wasn't as crap as I thought it could have been either. I got the size right (my biggest worry) - it's not too short and fit loosely enough at the hips, which I prefer. And the pockets are actually usable, not the shallow nonsense from which coins tumble out when you sit. Colour is good too, a dark, charcoal grey. Happy as a lark that my maiden attempt at online shopping worked out fine, after fretting about it in an earlier post.

I'm wearing it to work like this today -

The skirt also arrived in time for a friendly meeting with a shiny, spangle-y top I got from the Topshop sale over the weekend - surely one of the greatest bargains ever given it was discounted to S$35 from S$133 -

I think it's from more than a season ago, since it was marked down twice, but I like it for its Paulo Melim Andersson for Chloe vibe (circa his debut fall collection last year) -

While it seems that not many are going to miss his brief tenure at Chloe, I actually liked his collections, so it's nice to have something vaguely inspired by him since I'm unlikely to ever lay my hands on the real thing. I also like the clicking sounds the pailettes on the top make when I move, adding an aural element to a very visual item...
