At five feet tall, it’s always been a challenge to find any kind of maxi skirt or dress that didn’t require hemming. So you can imagine my surprise and delight when I found this chiffon-pleated skirt at Uniqlo that hit right at my ankles, which makes me wonder whether this actually is a maxi skirt or it was supposed to hit at mid-calf for taller girls. Whatever the intention was, it works perfectly for me, and I bought two, one in this peach/orange color and one in light gray. Personally I think everyone ought to own chiffon-pleated maxi skirts because they make an outfit so dramatic and romantic, especially when you’re walking around and the skirt just kind of moves with your body, or when the wind is blowing and the fabric flows so fluidly. Also half the time, I feel like a character from some pre-1920s era, having to lift my skirt up whenever I walk up stairs or tuck it under my legs when I hop into a car or even sit down. The downside is that I’m sure the hem has collected dirt from all over whenever I sit down or in general am not level with the ground, which reminds me of the Pride and Prejudice quote used in the title of this post, a remark by one of the Bingley sisters (depending which version you’re watching) regarding Elizabeth’s dirty petticoat. Although I sincerely hope the hem of my skirt isn’t six inches deep in mud.
