Aztec Skirt

 
Became obsessed with Aztec sequin skirts when I spotted this picture on pinterest (not to mention the Balenciaga clutch in the perfect peach tone!). I still haven't been able to id the skirt. Anybody know who makes it?
So some quick googling led to the All Saints version, which is even more stunning than the one from pinterest. But at $275, it was a little steep for such a fun, trendy item.

 
 Some further searching led me to this. Express (of all places!) has an adorable option for $59. I called the stores around me and all of them were sold out in the smaller sizes so I went online and they had it! I ordered both the xs and s and the xs ended up fitting perfectly. I read reviews that it runs a little big. Anywhoo, if you're in the market for a fun, flirty mini, check this one out for sure!! 

Btw...Express needs MAJOR help with their styling department. The styling in their ads are horrendous. They paired all their sequin skirts with a bunch of plaid shirts and western inspired jewelry. Not a fan!

I like! I saw some really fun aztec maxi dresses at Target and thought it would be such a fun summer wear. The All Saints one is gorgeous!

Such a fun, detailed mini. You can't go wrong with the $60 Express version! I'm with you though, I typically don't even look at their promo emails simply because the styling does need some help!

My friend just bought the Express version for her engagement party this Saturday! She told me she loves it. I think it looks great with minimal jewelry, definitely not any of the western variety ;)

Omigosh, the All Saints version is GORGEOUS. But the Express one is a great dupe too... love it!

xo, alison*elle

I absolutely LOVE that skirt...oh to fit into normal size clothes again. :(

LOL - thanks for pointing me in the right direction! This skirt is amazing - I remember seeing something similar at F21 a couple months ago, but it definitely didn't have the sparkly sequins. So glad to have found your main page!

When I saw the top of your post I was thinking it looked like a skirt I recently saw in Express :) And I agree about the styling...the plaid looked silly with it!

I was going to direct you to Zara - a few weeks ago they had a sim sequin but I think it was like $100 - you scored a deal with that Express version!

I love that! But as I'm having bambino no2 I can't really justify buying it :-( but I agree the styling is horrendous. I wouldn't feel inspired to buy from them. If a brand markets like that it gives me the impression that they don't really know the market and if clothes aren't worn correctly, it doesn't matter how gorgeous they are! Fickle? Me?!

Lovely skirt idea. It has a unique look. Instead of light colours, dark coloured skirts look more attractive.
