Hey Everyone, I hope you have had a good weekend and are looking forward to the week ahead. If you have been reading my blog for a while you will remember this skirt back in August 2016, when I picked it up from Zara. I thought this would be a good illustration to show what works for your body shape, aaannnd what doesn’t. I love Maxi skirts, FACT- Maxi skirts do not love me. I know its sad, but if you look at the difference from my last blog post HERE you will see how wearing different styles can and cannot suit you. I am a Emotional dresser. When I wake up in the morning, I decide what I am going to wear to how I am feeling that day. I first realized I was like this when I was 19 years old. Back then I was working at TOPSHOP and part of being a Brand Manager, you had to work at other Stores to help out. I was sent to Manchester Trafford Center store, where I met Sophie. She was 26 years old and had a eccentric sense of dress. One day she was a Skater girl, next day she was Posh spice, then Boho chick with braided locks and a pair of Birken stocks to boot!! I just thought, ‘that is how I like to dress’ and from then on I have carried on being a Chameleon with my dress sense, not really following trends, but on what suits my body shape and how I feel on the day. Which is very detrimental to my bank balance, but hey I enjoy it.
So back to the outfit at hand, today I was feeling slightly Boho with a sniff of Biker chick with my boots and leather Jacket. Oh and the snugly Jumper cause its FREEZING!! As you can see Maxi skirts instantly add width to the hips and the thick long Jumper hides my curves and makes my shoulders look larger. Do I care? Not a jot, because I was feeling it at the time, but it may be the last time I wear it…for now!
