Graduation Attire: The Skirtsy Box Skirt

The Skirtsy Box Review, Three Thousand Miles Blog, African Print Skirts, Trisha Therese-1-3

Last week I attended my friend Sabine’s graduation from law school. It was such a beautiful occasion and I’m so glad I finally got to meet her sister. You may remember Sabine from my adventures in Culver City at The Culver Hotel. Well unfortunately, she won’t be making any more blog appearances soon since she’ll be moving in a couple of weeks to start her law career *cue tears here*. I was touched when Sabine sent a grad invite in the mail inviting me to her graduation. Sabine has been my road dog throughout my journey in LA. If I ever want to do something she’s always down for the adventure. I’ll admit, I am the worst person to plan things with. I’m a true homebody so leaving my house is almost always a chore. But somehow Sabine put up with me and my flaky introverted ways for all these years and I’m sad to see her time in LA come to an end. I’m sucks to see my friend go, but I’m excited to see where her journey takes her.

For her graduation gift, I took photos of her and her family at graduation. I made sure to capture all the shots, staged and candid, and that I always put her in the best light (gotta make sure you catch that highlight and contour!). I won’t post any of her graduation photos here because 1) privacy and 2) I still haven’t finished editing them yet (I HATE editing photos), but I did wanna share some highlighting my outfit from that day.

Originally I was planning on using Rent the Runway for a dress. I used Rent the Runway for my birthday dress, but as I mentioned in a previous post, I was sent The Skirtsy Box and I loved it so much I decided to wear it to Sabine’s graduation. If you click here, you’ll find my initial first impressions of the skirt when I opened my package. As promised I am sharing my thoughts after I finally wore the skirt out. However, if you follow me on instagram (@threethousandmiles) you’d already know that this skirt is a hit in my closet.

Overall I’m really impressed with my Skirtsy Box skirt. It fits perfectly and has a comfy elastic band that’s hidden in the back to give it a perfect fit. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that it has pockets, which were very handy for holding my cell phone and my lens cap throughout the day. It also was warm enough in the evening breeze but lightweight and cool enough for me to sit in the blazing sun throughout the graduation day. Also as you can see in the pictures below, I ended up wearing the necklace as is. I mentioned in my unboxing post how I wanted to remove the bling charm that was on it, however I was running late the day of the graduation and ended up leaving the charm on. I’m glad I did because it looked really cute in photos. Perhaps I may start getting a bit more adventurous with my accessories from now on… I guess a little sparkle now and then won’t hurt! Below is a close up of the necklace:

Since my last post, The Skirtsy Box website has been updated and they are now offering dresses, two piece outfits, and hair accessories. I really want a 2 piece outfit but I gotta get this body right before I take the plunge.

Anyways, I feel like I’m beating a dead horse. I obviously loved my skirt and 100% recommend it. Below are some pictures so you can see how it fit. (Note: I am 5’4″ and wearing wedges for all photos).

Side note: I look like a puppet here and my hands look awkward lol BUT I wanted to include this because I wanted to show more views of the skirt!

If you want one of your own be sure to check out The Skirtsy Box’s website.  Don’t forget to check out my initial impressions/ unboxing here. Also some of you messaged me asking about the prices. They recently updated their page with new pricing and subscription options. In my opinion, this is a worthwhile box to get. The skirt was flattering, the fabric selection and quality was great, and everything was well made. Plus getting accessories to match makes the box even more worthwhile to me.

I’m seriously obsessed. I’m contemplating getting a midi length one for when I’m in the hospital. Or maybe a shorter one for my days off… What do you think? Let me know in the comments below!

xo, Trisha
