Bodyline Review: Costume Skirt

This is the third in my series of reviews of a bunch of new items I
bought from Bodyline recently for my birthday. I plan to do rather in
depth accounts of each so I thought it best not to lump the ridiculous
amount of detail pictures into one post.

 I decided to pick up a plaid skirt from the costume section of Bodyline, sue me. It’s actually a really nice skirt and I can see it being used a lot! Plus it was insanely cheap for the quality.


Title: COSTUME537
Colour-way: Red
Size: 4L (Which was a bit too big for me.)
Fabric: Heavy fabric, very thick.

  •  I kind of freaked out when I took this skirt out of the package. The bottom of the pleats were completely hemmed. It was easy to cut away though. I was talking to my mother about it and apparently some stores do this to keep the pleats nice and straight. I had no idea, but I don’t doubt that’s the reason.

  •  Along with the hem I cut away for the pleats I’ve found a bunch of stray red threads all over all of the clothing I bought.
  •  The hook of the skirt is really sturdy plus it’s movable.

  •  You can remove the eye of the hook and slide it along this little bar to tighten the fit. I thought it was really awesome and smart! A little unnecessary but pretty awesome.
  •  I had no idea what this was at first. I thought it was a pocket but couldn’t find any opening.
  •  Until I found the pocket! It’s hidden in the zipper of the skirt. That’s another pretty awesome thing, considering I never have pockets in my skirts.

 Even though this is a costume skirt I think it has the quality of an everyday skirt. I really like it. The red is so bright plus the awesome closure. Plus the hidden pocket. It’s a lot longer than most of my skirts, but they tend to be bordering a slutty length, so I don’t mind the change.

Best wishes,

    That skirt is very pretty! And I think the secret pocket is extremely handy. I had one little mysterious inside pocket in a short tulle skirt, that I use when I was clubbing. Lipstick, powder and a credit card fit there nicely and I did not need a bag. 😀

    My grandmother gave an old one she used to wear. It's wool or something and sort of heavy, but I love it! ^_^

    Thank you so much for talking about the hem because I freaked out over my skirt as well LOL. I thought got a defective skirt.
