The H&M Carrie (sort of..) skirt

I saw this skirt glowing in a tired corner of an H&M store in Knightsbridge and immediately the Sex and the City opening credits flashed through my mind. Ok so it’s not a tutu like Carrie’s but it’s the closest I’ve seen the high street come to producing such a skirt. So obvs I bought it (I am a HUGE Carrie B fan).

Only problemo is the pinchy elasticated waistband. By pinchy I mean that unless you have the washboard abs of Kelly Holmes you will undoubtedly get severe love handles. (I have tried to stretch the elastic by pulling it several times, but to no avail – anyone got tips on how to help elastic lose its elasticity??)

I have come up with quite a good solution though – thick scarf round waist acts as a corset and minimises lumps and bumps.

  1. Love that skirt, and how you’re wearing it. H&M have quite a few gems at the moment!!

  2. Beautiful skirt and loving the scarf belt idea! This is a great time of year to look deep into the corners of the shops and pick up that late summer bargain!

  3. Clever use of scarf. Makes me wanna go buy a bunch of them now as they are so multi-useful!
