Marc Jacobs Elaborate "Bustle" Tie Skirt size 4






Hi all,

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.

Other details:

-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.
