Marc Jacobs Elaborate "Bustle" Tie Skirt size 4
This is a Marc Jacobs silk/cotton skirt that you can really play with in many ways. I bought it at the Marc Jacobs boutique on Greene Street thinking that I would get more wear out of it than I have. It's made of a silver cotton/silk fabric with a matte sheen (can't remember the name for this kind of fabric) and it ties through an elaborate set of loops to create the unexpected fishtail bustle in the back.
-full lined/full slip in muslin
-two hidden slit pockets in front
-labeled size 4 but because of tie-waist design, can accommodate from 24"-28" waist (my dress form is a 26" waist, which is the ideal size)
-would fit up to 36" hip measurement
-skirt length in front 25", 25.5" in back
Styling notes: I dressed my form in a short sleeve button up shirt, but I would wear it next summer with a super baggy Alexander Wang racer-back tank -- a white one or a striped one -- for a gamine look. Wearing it this winter with a boat neck marine sweater (like the one nevermind posted today) would be really cute, too.
I don't feel any particular need to sell this, but I thought I would post it in case someone has been looking for something like this. I'll take trades for this, too.
Made in the US.
Condition: perfect condition. I've worn it twice, exactly -- once to dinner, once to an afternoon reception. I'll press it before sending it out.
Original price: $1100. I paid $450.
Asking: $100 including shipping.
Listing end: December 6, but, very casually, whenever, even if its after December 6. Leave email in comments.
