I have two great shopping regrets in my life. One is a pair of beautiful teal suede booties that I let a friend (a MALE friend, it goes without saying!!!) talk me out of buying in Chicago when I was in college, and the other is the black and white striped Jenny skirt. I knew that I wanted the skirt from the beginning, but for some reason I kept putting it off and putting it off…until it was too late.
So though I had come to Ains & Elke StyleHaus seeking out Christmas joy, there was no way I could resist this skirt!
Working on my Jack Skellington creepy Christmas realness – how’d I do?
I was most familiar with Ains & Elke StyleHaus from the stunning vintage reproduction sweaters I’d seen all over Instagram. The sweaters are a bit out of my price range (though I hope to save up for one next year!), but I couldn’t miss the Black Friday opportunity to pick up some custom skirts.
Ordering was super easy – all I needed to do was include my waist measurement and preferred length, and we were off! At $65, the custom Trixie skirts are an amazing deal; I also really appreciated that there’s no up charge for plus sizes, which always leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
The shop info predicted a 3-4 week turnaround time, and I received my skirts 3 weeks and a handful of days later.
The Trixie skirt has lovely deep pockets and closes with a back zip and two cute buttons. I have no complaints about the construction…everything looks sharp and super high quality! I’ll definitely plan on ordering more pieces from Ains & Elke StyleHaus, and I highly recommend checking the shop out.
I got lots of compliments on this skirt, and I know it’ll be a year-round staple for me. I can’t wait to show off the Christmas skirt I picked up…expect to see that on my Instagram next week!
