Check out Chanel's Fall 2011 haute couture collection. About a third into the show, you'll start seeing quite a few rather stylish outfits featuring slim-fitted skirts, with a flare below the knees. Even the final model wears a bridal outfit with a stride-impeding skirt. Notably, Chanel's current designer is Karl Lagerfield, who is no stranger to the hobble skirt.
Here's an example:
In addition to Chanel's site, you can also see the video via YouTube:

What is particularly great about the ASOS site is that they feature runway videos of all their products, so you can actually see how the garments look on a walking model. I highly recommend checking it out - you'll see why I included the pieces above. You can find several similar skirts and dresses by simply doing a search for "maxi." Also, I want to point out that the link here are to the US site, but ASOS has several other regional variations as well.

For most of you that don't speak Russian, the Google Translate plug-in does pretty well.
Also, mobile theme turned on for those of you browsing through a mobile device.

Unfortunately time constraints have forced me to shut down the old site. Even if you were a fan, I think you'd agree that spam took over the forum, and I wasn't updating much. But instead of abandoning it altogether, I decided to transition to a blog format. This will allow me to post relevant content quickly (I’ll slowly transition some of the old site to this space), avoid spam, and hopefully encourage occasional contributions from all of you (I encourage you to comment, especially on the open thread posts).
Few of us like change, but I hope you stick around and give it a chance. Please bare with me as I build this out. I started with a minimalist template, but will likely expand it in the future if there is enough of a response. Also, I welcome any suggestions as well.
