Remember that LOFT skirt I decided to keep from the Friends and Family sale? I finally got her back from my tailor, and she’s here to make her grand appearance. I’m really happy with it, and am glad I decided to keep and alter it.
Interestingly enough, I didn’t realize I had dressed almost entirely in LOFT until I started putting this post together. The shirt is my corsage button down, which I got altered in this post. The skirt only needed some slimming, which I’ll talk about more in a future post.
It’s all in the details with this skirt. I love the front pockets, and since I usually don’t know what to do with my hands, it’s nice having someplace to shove them. The pockets, however, can present their own problem. Because the front pockets open up a bit, it’s important they not add bulk to anyplace where bulk could be embarrassing. Placed too high, and I would look like I magically acquired a tummy pooch. Luckily, the pockets are low enough that it is clearly apparent that the pockets are pouffy, and not me. And just look at those back pleats! They are such a nice alternative to a traditional back slit, and much more stylish if you ask me.
I’m also really liking the length of this skirt on me. I’ve always been a bit self conscious of my knobby knees, and this length covers them, without being dowdy.
And it’s really strange, but I just can’t put together an outfit without adding my long necklaces these days. They have this weird lengthening effect that really pulls everything together.
