Colors Blocks


The girlfriend ordered a skirt from a blogshop for me. She was a little upset about it because when it arrived, a portion of the stitching wasn't up to her standards. She said it outright that she didn't feel like giving it to me. So sweet the woman is. I saw it, and decided that it wasn't anything I hated. "I want it. Please. Thank you!!!"

The girlfriend's very adventurous lor. In terms of cut, this isn't the usual I'd wear. In fact, I avoid it for a simple reason- it's excruciatingly unforgiving to lovehandles and tummy rolls. That blue band, I love. The green, I'm not so sure. I don't own one article of clothing in this shade of green. The closest to green in the wardrobe is a dirty hue that's more brown than anything. I think the friends have decided that to make me wear colors, they'll just have to buy them for me. Muahahahhaha.

Another girlfriend suggested pairing it with a yellow top. My eyes widened. YELLOW. I don't own anything in yellow either! And I'm timid with color. Yellow, blue and green. AAHHHHH! Cannot! Putting on the skirt is already courageous, in my books. So, I paired it with black for a casual night out. Rubber flip flops were considered. But out of utmost respect to my stylish companion for the evening, I wore black flats.

So there you go. Whatever imperfections the skirt has, they don't matter. I don't care about it. They don't show up when I wear it. It falls fine on the hips; it feels right. But this, I will emphasize- the skirt is bloody unforgiving. I've to remind myself to consciously hold in the stomach and do that skirt proud.

Babe you don't have to worry about wearing slippers. If you give me advance notice, I'd wear them too. I love letting my toes see the world anyway. :p

Despite it being an unforgiving cut, you look GREAT! I would definitely have gone with heels to assist with the tummy-in, butt-out posture because I will need ALL the help I can get. *rubs buddha belly*

~5-Cat Style: thanks babe! :) i know what you mean! heels put you just on that edge to make you taller, more conscious of how one would walk. kekekekek. i like heels for that reason too. but comfort won!
