separated at birth

i had long forgotten about my velvet maxi skirt which i bought about twelve years ago.  i used to wear it a lot in college and for my first job here in America.  finally, the skirt had to retire.  it survived several moves and closet cleanings due to the beautiful fabric it's made out of.  i kept it thinking i could at least dress up as a witch for Halloween someday (which i actually did a year ago).  anyway, the skirt was retired...
that's until a few days ago i saw its twin on Reena Rai of Fashion Daydreams.  hers is from New Look:

  1. I am loving everything velvet at the moment. Topshop has some great pieces in. You look great, I love that it's plum and not the conventional black.


  2. I am sooooooooooooo glad for you!!!

  3. Oooh, I love it!! I had a feeling velvet was on its way with the 90's recycle. I LOVE velvet babydoll dresses, but that maxi skirt is great too!

  4. Ooooh hello! Thanks for the mention. Love your skirt, they are practically the same. Looks fab on u x

  5. love this long skirt on you! the fabric and colour is gorgeous! it's so funny how seeing something looking fresh on someone else can totally motivate you to pull it out and make it new! xx
