From the moment I saw this skirt online, I knew that it had to be mine. This is the Fanny skirt by Bettie Page Clothing. You could say I’m a big fan. It’s a deep emerald green with black flocked velvet fans printed on it. I love the mix of the classic 50′s swing skirt with the Art Deco style fan print. The skirt fits at the natural waist and you will want to follow the size chart exactly. If you’re between sizes, size up. The skirt has no stretch at the waist. It zips up the back and has a button closure (which is why there isn’t too much stretch). I went with the medium. My waist is 28″ which is the max measurement for the Medium and it fits snugly but not too tight.
I paired it with an off-shoulder jersey top from Pinup Girl Clothing. The top is really versatile and comfortable. It is perfect to wear with your high-waisted skirts and pants. The top is one-size fits all, but would do best for a size small to large. It sells out constantly so get yourself on the wait-list and snatch it up when it comes back in.
This skirt made me feel instantly girly and was very comfortable. And did I mention it has pockets? Yes, you heard me right. How awesome is that? I love dresses and skirts with pockets; sometimes though, you can get a little bulge or puffiness. Not in this one, without my hands in the pockets you’d never even notice they were there. Perfection. It’s got a nice weight to it so it’s good for colder weather. Also because of the weight, it looks great with a petticoat. I chose to wear it without, but will probably add one when I wear it for a more festive occasion. This is the first separate piece I’ve gotten from Bettie Page and I will definitely be getting more soon. I can’t say enough great things about this skirt. It retails for $90 at Bettie Page Clothing. You can buy it here online, or get it at one of their boutique locations.
