You can’t believe my excitement when this collection finally arrived to our Sydney office!
I had never worn a suspender skirt and I was quite keen to try one. The most beautiful thing about the Kiss me Deadly DeVille skirt is the material: a stretch satin in a midnight blue with a black lace overlay on the waist. It feels and looks divine on!
The skirt has scalloped edges that split and overlap in the middle, revealing (if you wish to) a glimpse of your stockings top when you walk. In fact, attached from the inside are 6 garter straps. Metal clasps, sturdy and secure, like only Kiss me Deadly can do.
I found this is also a very versatile piece - paired with a black top and black heels, it makes a very glamorous evening outfit. But you can also wear it with lighter colors for day time. I’ve been experimenting with a fitted Breton top, nude seamed stockings and red heels. Very Bardot meets Lolita :)
So how do you wear your suspender skirt? What do you love most about it? I’d love to hear your comments!
If you like to know what happens behind the scenes..
The theme for the new Kiss me Deadly collection is women spies from WW2: this woman stole secrets from a naval office with the help of her lover (and some knock-out drops), and when caught, they took their clothes off and pretended to be in flagrante in order to explain why they were sneaking around the building!
The Blue DeVille skirt is available at Sweet Pins. This is a limited edition collection, only 300 sets have been made.
