The Full Skirt

full skirt gold black

I am forever a fan of a full a-line skirt.  I love a slightly high waist – to accentuate my own waistline – and a bold flair hem.

If I’m going to wear a skirt, I want to be able to twirl in it — is that so much to ask?

Also, I’m all for the bandage or super-fitted skirt on everyone else, but I’m just not a tube-sock-worn-as-skirt kind of girl; plus, I like carbs.  The full skirt offers a skinny-day version and a fat-day version.  Multi-use clothing is my fave.  (That is, until I one day have a wardrobe to wear outfits only once, a la the Kardashian sisters.)

The “I woke up with a flat stomach and utter willpower” day:  full skirt paired with tucked in blouse, thin belt, and highest of heels

The “‘I feel like such a heifer. I had two bowls of Special K, 3 pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, 5 peanut butter M&M’s and like 3 pieces of licorice.'”-channeling-Cher-of-Clueless” day:   full skirt, lace crop top, no belt, cardigan, snacks in your purse

    Full skirts are so much fun! I need to add more to my wardrobe. I have one, but it’s too short and my butt makes it really full looking in the back. Tight skirts are tough to pull off on most days. If I only have to wear it for an hour or two, ok, maybe, but I too like the carbs.

  2. hahahahahah the definitions are what makes this post.
    also love the first metallic skirt.

    “….cardigan, snacks in your purse”.

    Oh my gosh, I love all of them! And I totally agree, high waist skirts are Devine ways to show off a tiny waist.

    I love that first skirt with the different textures and gold! Greetings from Atlanta. 😉

    I always wanted to wear full skirts but they don’t look that great on me. I love the look though.
