What I Wore Today

Once again shopping my closet, I pulled out a white skirt that has also been sitting around collecting dust. I purchased this skirt because the subtle pattern drew my eye to it, but it's about two sizes too big and (I think Rumi's to blame for this one), it's just slightly too long. By too long I mean just above the knee, but these days I'm just really craving miniskirts. I pushed the skirt higher up and belted it around my waist. It looks a bit like a puffy marshmallow in the back (not the most flattering thing), and my grandmother offered to take it in and make it shorter for me so I don't have to walk around having marshmallow butt. I personally didn't think the bunching up at the back was so bad, but she insisted.

Gorgeous skirt, the subtle pattern is very nice indeed (so is that pleated top).
Marshmellow bum HAHAHA that sounds hilarious, but paints the picture (however I doubt you could ever have marshmellow butt)

Very cute! Sorry you missed VFW :( We might have a blogger get together before I leave for Japan.

Gorgeous skirt, I like the way you made it work! And yeahhh I honestly don't have anything knee length in my closet...I just feel awkward, I've tried!

I love the way you fold the top of your skirt, you did it with the leather skirt and I loved it too!

Anonymous: My favourite outfits come from lighthearted experimenting. I find that as soon as I think about things too much it takes forever to put a good outfit together. I'm very inspired by interesting color combinations.
