Taylor Swift's Glitter Pleated Skirt Is Perfect... And Expensive, So Here Are Some More Affordable Dupes
Taylor Swift is having a major moment: She's kind of created the perfect storm of media attention to promote her newest album, the ubiquitous 1989. There's her eyebrow-raising Harry Styles-inspired tunes, her summer catwalk to-and-from the gym, a veritable explosion of interviews, live performances and magazine covers, her ultra-high profile friendships (she was spotted at a basketball game with bestie Karlie Kloss just last night, and Lena Dunham — along with just about every celebrity, ever — can't stop tweeting her support), all topped off by some light trolling on her infamous, brand new Tumblr account.
Whew. Girl has been busy. Luckily for us, in true Taylor Swift fashion, she's been doing it all... well, quite fashionably! I loved her gold and navy blue sailor-inspired outfit on Good Morning America (it was fetchingly retro and glittery, of course), and her all-black ensemble she wore to the Knicks game Wednesday night with Karlie was adorably NYC chic. Best of all, however, is her glittery rainbow pleated skirt. Yep, you read that right: Taylor Swift officially wore the most Swiftian garment ever, in the form of an absolutely gorgeous lamé skirt (which she wore to her interview with Sirius XM radio yesterday). Check it out:
So shiny! So colorful! So preeeetty! And here it is in action:
Sure is envy-inducing, isn't it? Well, luckily after some heavy-duty sleuthing, I managed to find it:

Unfortunately, it's very expensive... but if you happen to have a thousand or so dollars lying around, you could always spring for it!
