Topshop: Have You Seen This Skirt?

topshop skirt model

Dear Topshop. Or anyone, for that matter. Have you seen this skirt? It’s a houndstooth check “tulip” skirt and I want it. I need it. Why the hell I didn’t buy it when I actually tried it on, and liked it enough to take a photo of it, and tweet about it, and tell everyone I was going to buy it, I HAVE NO IDEA. Forgive me, for ’twas a moment of retail foolishness.

Anyway, Topshop (or anyone): can you help me? I need a size 10 and have trawled eBay to no avail. You must have one in a cupboard somewhere, surely? Can I come and have a root around? (Joke.) But seriously – I’ll pay over the odds for it. And if you can magically make my skin look as beautifully golden as it did in this picture then I shall love you forever. (Where an earth had I been? Whatta tan!)

I want this skirt, I want it times a thousand. I also really want the t-shirt too – that was one of the best tops I have ever owned. Soft, flattering, extremely attractive to moths. Therefore it is no longer. Dear Banana Republic…

  1. LOL! That skirt looks amazing on you… why in the world didn’t you buy it at the time?!?! And goodness… I wish I had your legs! Gorgeous as always :D

  2. There is a really similar one on ebay, but I think its a bit lighter than the one you have in the picture: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Topshop-Grey-Tulip-Skirt-Size-10-New-Tags-BNWT-/220985775080?pt=UK_Women_s_Skirts&hash=item3373c753e8#ht_500wt_1202

    I know how annoying it is to look back and say “why the hell didn’t i buy that??” haha xxx

  3. Ah, the one that got away, story of my life. Good luck with search.

    • @Angela ah, I got excited then! No, it’s got a chequered pattern on the fabric! I didn’t take a close-up unfortunately! x

  4. Phew – I want that skirt too now ;) Sorry, Ruth, but I’ve sadly not seen or heard of this one. Good luck.

  5. I want your body! Where do they sell those?!

  6. Dear Ruth,
    I like the skirt just fine. But I really want is to see more pictures of Mr. Bear!! I love cats of all shapes, colors, sizes, and ages! (I volunteer many hours at a no-kill cat shelter in Denver, Colorado.) I don’t have a Facebook account, though, is that where you post more info/photos of him? Sorry about this since it’s so off-topic, but every time I open one of your posts, I hope to see more news of him.
    Thanks, Shelley

  7. You do look amazing in this photo! And it makes your boobs look huge! :D

  8. Hi Ruth,
    I have this skirt in a bright blue houndstooth pattern. Am pretty sure its a 10…either way its really too short on me so goes unworn.

  9. UUUUUUUUUUUUUgh I hate when you pass on something and then regret it later.
