The most important feature I look for in a skirt, and here girls I think you will agree with me, are pockets. Color, shape, length, fabric... etc are only secondary. I think all skirts, or dresses for that matter, should have pockets. OK, maybe you don't fully agree, but think of the last time you tried on a skirt and discovered it had pockets. Didn't that come as a nice surprise, and didn't that skirt instantly gain some extra points on your scale? For me this skirt was love at first sight. I love the fact that the pockets are placed in the front, not on the sides, the midi length is high in my preferences and the neoprene fabric makes it so versatile, it can be dressed up or down easily. Moving on to another subject, my hair is finally long enough for milkmaid braids. I haven't worn it like this in ages. And I think it looks even more interesting now with my lavender tips.
