The next Bloggers Do It Better challenge is maxi skirt. I’ve chickened out of the maxi Everybody Everywear challenge a couple of months ago, but since then I’ve been more and more interested in trying this out, and now I’ve got no excuse! Of course it means I had to break my shopping ban, but it’s been broken a long time ago so it doesn’t really matter 😛
I tried out a couple of skirts at my local thrift store just so see what shape I like, and in the end decided that I prefer the fuller silhouette (I always do.) Also because I’ve pinned this look (by Starr Crow of A Though Is The Blossom – doesn’t she have the coolest name ever?), plus it reminds me of something Frida Kahlo would wear. The only setback is that the full skirt looks much more casual than the straight one so I can’t wear it to work.
So yeah, I’ve finally broken the ice with the maxi!
T-shirt: thrifted, remixed
Cardigan: Wet Seal, thrifted
you’ve done such a great job with this challenge! I was wondering what you would come up! I’ve never seen you wear a maxi before but clearly its a good look for you! I like the material too, its kind of satiny!
Oh, I really like this! If I had this skirt, I would spend all day imagining I was a princess. No lie. Internally I’m six years old. Full skirts are fun!
If I finally give in to this trend, Imma blame you!! =P Hehehe. Kidding, no blaming, but I’m certainly wanting to try this now! 😀 I prefer the fuller skirts too! Twirl-worthy!
I love the way you interpreted this look! I feel like Maxi skirts can be intimidating, but you look lovely 🙂
I am checking out different submissions for this BDIB challenge. I love the color of the maxi. And double cool that it is thrifted. I’m never disappointed at my thrift store. You always find something. Have a nice weekend.
I love the color of your skirt!
