Another Year, Another Lindy Bop New Year Outfit

Wearing Lindy Bop on New Year’s Eve is unintentionally becoming something of a tradition for me. When I saw this beauty, the ‘Adalene’ Green Alpine Swing Skirt (no longer available), in the boxing day sale for £13… I knew I’d found the one to say good riddance to 2016 in.

I love the print on this skirt, and the huge pockets on the front, but those lovely big pockets do have a tendency to sag at the opening as you can see in the picture above. As with all Lindy Bop stuff (especially the pieces with no stretch / a fixed waist) I sized up and am wearing a UK22 here.

The length is generous, it’s well below the knee for me so for most it will be a true midi length. This skirt is also lined very nicely which considering a) the price of it, and b) it’s a winter garment, is a thoughtful addition.

The Adalene skirt fastens with a row of covered buttons down the front and sadly these are the source of much frustration. Before I could wear the skirt I had to resew them, some of them looked like they were hanging on by the skin of their teeth even though the skirt was brand new. Similarly, when I posted about this skirt on Instagram the lovely Becky from The Very Hungry Faterpillar said she’d had issues with the buttons actually snapping.

I styled the skirt with an old BooHoo Plus bodysuit (similar here [affiliate link]), layering my new Vixen Curves harness underneath, and wearing my Grandmother’s brooch attached to an old velvet choker at my neck. As much as I’m a fan of a mininal décolletage, I really like the strappy-ness of the choker and harness here.

My makeup was pretty simple, I’m wearing my current favourite lip colour: Ellarie by Colourpop. I’m also using the Kat Von D tattoo liner [affiliate link] which I initially slagged off as overrated; however lately I’ve come back to it after my usual liner ran out, and I’m absolutely loving it as it’s ridiculously easy to use. I guess it’s more proof that you really should be prepared to try most things twice.

Oh, and for those who’d like more info about the harness: I’ll be reviewing and writing about it at length over on She Might Be very soon so keep an eye out.
