The Ted Baker skirt gets to party at last!


Welcome to my first post of 2020

Hello my dear friends. Have you had a lovely time over the festive period? I do hope so. I've had a super time, both at work and at home. Today I hosted a New Year's party at the Gallery giving me the perfect excuse to finally allow this gorgeous Ted Baker skirt time to shine. The skirt has featured twice on the blog before (here and here), as a Cinderella piece never quite making it to the party. Today however, it finally debuted. Not only that, this rebirth is, in my humble opinion, the best style version too.




I bought the skirt back in the summer of 2018 from TK Maxx when it was reduced from £200 to £50, proving to be too much of a bargain to be missed. But somehow that top line price meant I kept it for best, forever waiting for that special occasion to bring it out. The trouble with putting that invisible label of "special" onto something makes it well nigh impossible for the perfect event to come along. 




The robust wind played with the floaty tulle of the skirt.





Now that I've broken the spell, I can't wait to bring the skirt out again. It drew lots of compliments both for the pattern and shape and it felt such a feminine piece to wear. 






I came across these beautiful Italian courts when I was in Truro in the spring. From a charity shop and brand new, the £20 asking price was another bargain I found irresistible. The moment I saw them I knew how beautifully they would match with this skirt. Too matchy-matchy? I beg to differ.








The left hand ring was from an airport concession and the other is a pre-loved piece. Sunglasses are by Quay Australia. 




The chiffon blouse is a well worn favourite of mine (from TK Maxx) and the belt is a second hand buy.





I'd love to claim that this fabulous Ted Baker skirt was the star of the show today, but the truth is that the Tresco Choir stole that accolade. They performed at both of the parties held in the Gallery over the festive season as well as lots of other venues and were the highlight of every event. 





Fingers crossed that the video uploads!

  1. That is one gorgeous skirt, Anna, and don't you look utterly fabulous in it?? I adore the matchy shoes - I don't think "too matchy" is in my vocabulary, lol. I'd love to see the skirt styled with some trainers and a chunky sweater! Does it have pockets? Inquiring minds want to know - Ted Baker is a pretty chi-chi brand over here.

    Happy New Year!

    1. Sheila, I have to say you've shocked me with this styling proposal - skirt and trainers - why I thought you so didn't like that trend? Maybe I've missed something of late? Anyway, thanks for the lovely feedback. And no, sorry no pockets x

  4. What a fab skirt and glad it got to go to the party! With those shoes a marriage made in heaven. I wore a Ted Baker top on Christmas day. I got it at a charity swish party in the Autumn, perfect condition and it had a dry cleaning ticket attached.
    Well done to the choir.
    Have a good week, Tessa x
