I love skirts. I prefer them much more to pants that's for sure, not that I don't like pants, but skirts are, well, lovely and the two above are very lovely. The first one fits well with my brocade obsession. It takes a sophisticated approach to texture and pattern. Speaking of sophisticated, feast your eyes on the Erin Fetherston skirt. I adore it! The champagned hued satin, the sculptured folds--it's a work of art.
