September 29, 2010: I've Got A Long Skirt

Actually, what I really have is a a maxi dress disguised as a long skirt. I was inspired by other bloggers who make their clothes (mainly dresses) do double duty; whether it's a skirt as a dress, or a dress as a shirt, or some other cool thing that I couldn't come up with it's absolutely motivating but, I digress...

I honestly wasn't really sold on this fall trend... I'm still not sure how I feel about it... no, not yet... not now either... How about you? I just think that shorter skirts are more flattering on me and long skirts make me look oddly proportioned. But, as they (whoever they are) say: "you never know until you try" and I'm glad I did but, I'm not sure I would do it again. Are there any fall trends that you're not sure about?
  • Top: pink ruffle embellished t-shirt, LOFT (same shirt different color here)
  • Bottom: black maxi dress, New York and Company
  • Shoes & Accessories: silver cut-out flats, Merona for Target (similar and on sale here); silver bead earrings, Tiffany & Co.; black spy bag, Fendi

  2. I think it worked out well! I always like long skirts on other people and hate them on myself...
    I'm not totally sold on the return of the early 90s boots. Which is not to say that I don't want to try them (again), just that I'm not sure that they'll work with my aesthetic.
    Also, thanks for the shout out!

  3. great blog!! cute outfit!!

  4. Oh, I'm the same way with long skirts/dresses...but I would like one just to feel like a traditional woman! I know, that sounds weird...

  5. I typically avoid longer skirts you are right about the proportions being odd.
    I do love this top, the detailing and color are so pretty!

  6. I'm the same way! I found one of my mom's old longer length skirts and ended up pulling it up as a dress, haha. I'd wear it if I didn't get strange looks, maybe.. maybe with heels? But I think you pulled it off rather well. :) I think those crazy patterned ones are what pushes people away sometimes.


Thanks for your feedback! I really look forward to hearing from you...
