The High Low Skirt: The Modern Day Princess Dress

Top: Free People Skirt: Brandy Melville Sandals: Chanel

So I have been fascinated by this concept of a skirt ever since I saw Carrie Underwood look absolutely fab in her video with Brad Paisley, “Remind Me.” I loved how it caught the wind, and gave elegance to something so simple.

Granted mine is not made of chiffon nor silk, but a cotton blend Brandi Melville high low floral print skirt is sufficient for those of us not walking through the desert for the purpose of filming a music video.

I think what draws me most to these skirts is how they catch the wind. When I was younger, everything had to pass the “twirl test.” A test in which a dress was only wearable if when twirled in, puffed out like a cupcake. Now that I’m older, I no longer impose this test on my wardrobe. But comparing something to a Carrie Underwood piece does add to the “must have” factor for a piece.

Carrie Underwood wore a  $1200 Gomez-Gracia dress for her video.

Needless to say, the second I saw this skirt and it reminded me of Carrie’s, I told the sales girl “wrap it up, put it in the bag! My search is over.” And it only cost me about $30!
