Modern Vintage ~ Boat Neck and Tea Length


To say I love this skirt is an understatement. There is something so feminine and so perfect about a full, tea length or midi skirt that makes you want to twirl.  Once I slip it on, as Kenya from the Real Housewives of Atlanta puts it "I am gone with the wind fabulous!"  The possibilities of coordinating outfits with my new eShakti skirt are endless.  I am super excited to wear it with this boat neck top from Adea. The style and the feel of this luxurious, Italian micro fiber top completes my outfit which is reminiscent of a 1950's bombshell.

Tip for wearing a tea length skirt:  When it comes to what to wear on top of a full, midi-skirt or tea length skirt, choose something fitted so that you don't end up looking swamped in fabric. You can layer a simple tank top under a denim jacket, or tie a chambray top over a cami for a more casual vibe.  Checkout Adea for layering cami's and tops that keep you cool and comfy during these hot summer days. 

My skirt is from eShakti, a line of women's fashion clothing that sells beautiful dresses, tops, skirts and even jackets- the best part is, they customize them to your height, size, and style! Yay, for us who are not your typical standard sizes! For those of you who don't require customizing, they offer sizes 0-36W.

Whatever you choose, have fun twirling and being fabulous! I love that ladylike fashion is hot right now.  What do you think about tea length or midi skirts, yay or cray?

  12. Beautiful Monica! So very retro. Guess what, I'm right behind you with the tea-length skirt. I just had a golden yellow one made and plan on wearing it next week. It's such a feminine shape and length that dresses up or more casual. You look darling.

  29. That skirt is just PERFECTION!! I am such a fan of this length skirt, but have more of this style in my winter wardrobe than summer one. I want to rectify that but am on a spending ban at the moment, argh! Honestly, one of my favourite looks of yours - looking gorgeous x
