YesStyle crawling

I've browsed this site off and on for a couple of years, but have now dug more in-depth.

At first blush, YesStyle seems depressing, as many items are labelled "one size." The impression is an entire site comprised of "extra tiny," with a couple "xx-tiny" thrown into the mix, but this is actually untrue. There are just tons and tons of items, and many of them are sized in a range, or it turns out the "one size" is a bit stretchy and/or forgiving. After a while you get the hang of it.

This is a casual skirt, clearly, yet it's thoughtfully constructed. Check the arc shape at the front, instead of the usual straight tiers. It can also be worn as a dress:

...where it's shown over a little tee shirt, thus ending the bra strap/strapless bra quagmire, at least for this particular item.

This also looks useful:

I've had the notion to succumb to the lace skirt fad, but feel a well-made one could become a classic. Why not? I would prefer this off-white style to pure white, and its alternating lace stripes to a solid overlay of lace. The skirt is long enough to work for work, which is another huge bonus.
