Blue Vanilla Giovana Double Layer Skirt

Wednesday, November 12, 2014
A couple of weeks ago I received this gorgeous skirt in the post from Blue Vanilla via EtailPR and I love it! I hadn't heard of Blue Vanilla until their samples showed up on the EtailPR website. I am not usually a skirt kind of girl, probably because I was forced to wear them for PE in a freezing gym hall, however this skirt has changed my mind!

The *Blue Vanilla Giovana Double Layer Skirt (£24) is like nothing else I have in my wardrobe, it is so girly, floral and delicate! I don't know when I would wear this skirt, as in my opinion, it isn't an everyday skirt but it is so pretty. I love the double layer - there is a sheer section at the hem of the skirt which looks gorgeous! I also love the monochrome/grey toned colour scheme, it makes it more wearable and easier to pair with shoes/tops. I paired the skirt with a sheer stripy black top from Forever21 and chunky black heels from Pretty Small Shoes, as I like the combination of the delicate, feminine skirt with the edgier top and chunky heels. 

I have a size small and it fits really  well, it is a great length even though I am very petite (4ft 10") and it feels well made. The only thing I don't like about the skirt is that you can see the tag and stitching through the sheer layer which makes it looks a little bit cheap in my opinion, although the tag can be cut out. The skirt despite looking ornate and delicate is very comfortable to wear due to the elasticated waist band. 

Overall, I love the design, print and colour scheme of this skirt but my favourite part is the double layer, with the sheer panel at the hem which looks so pretty. I may wear this to our new year fancy dress party but I don't know what character it would be - suggestions in the comments please! I would definitely recommend the brand Blue Vanilla based on this item. Also the prices seem very reasonable and they have quite a wide range of clothes. Overall rating: ★★★★, 5/5.

What do you think of this skirt? Have you bought anything from Blue Vanilla?
