How do you wear Skirts???

Yeeeaaaah!Its Thursday, just one more day and we can say We Made It!!!
Another week down, that’s a real blessing don’t you think???
That’s right.
As I’ve said a ton of times on this blog, I do really think I need fashion help.
Jeans and t-shirts ain’t cutting it!!Especially in a world where fashion is the in-thing..
I might just be the lost one here but I sure do hope there are others like me…

Anyway, in my attempt to cut myself from my self-created fashion rut, I have been thinking about adding some skirts to my closet. I have some but I rarely wear them so once I buy some more, I hope to take it to the next level and actually wear them..
I once wore a skirt suit and my hubby’s friend asked me why I was stealing my sister’s clothing..He even pointed out that he can only talk seriously to me if am back to my jeans routine.
Insert very sad face here…..
I digress, my main point here was, am trying to be more fashionable, or more specifically fantasizing about it.
Anyway, here are some of my latest skirt finds and I do hope they make their way to my closet while am asleep and then I can begin the process of thinking how I will wear them

Skirt Fever

The ones in the first row are called skater skirts (which I didn’t know). By the way, am always surprised by these names. Where do they come from??Who names skirts?? I’ll stop there since it is getting kinda weird.
Anyway, I love all these skirts. The colors=awesome.
If I wore that maxi skirt, I would totally look weird rock it, coz am a wee bit tiny.
Have yourselves a pretty awesome Thursday!

Lemon Inspired

Hello Friday!!!Am in love with you already. Anyway people, am so happy its Friday. Before I go any further, I would love to thank all of you for all the comments am getting these days. I love reading them so much and replying and chatting with all of ya. So, thank you.

Now, as usual, its Friday. That can only mean one thing, Friday Fancies. This week, {av} set the stage for a fruit inspired outfit. I was certainly torn between all the fruits that I like. At first, I wanted to base my outfit on the watermelon, two minutes later, the orange, ten minutes later, the mango. But something was not right, because lemons are one of my favorite fruits and part of my favorite colors. So, I just had to go with lemons. (sorry all other fruits, no hard feelings!)
So, lets see what I came up with:

The skirt was the first thing I saw and I fell in love. If only I was much of a skirt wearer, I would buy that skirt. The sheer blouse was meant to break all the color and make the outfit, kind of peaceful and not screamy (is that a word??). Hope you like it and I cannot wait to see what your fruit inspired outfits look like.

High-Low Skirts

I did not know what I was going to write about today. In fact, I was thinking of just letting the whole posting energy go to waste. However, at the back of my mind, I knew I wanted to write about something that am loving right now, but I did not know what exactly that was.
So, I decided to hop on over to Polyvore and see whether there was something that I really liked. And then I typed ‘h’. Suddenly, the suggestion of a high-low skirt came up but I did not know what that is. Innocently, I clicked, just so I could know what a high-low skirt was and so that I would not be the dumb girl who gets passed on by popular trends. Let me just say that this was magic at its best.
Two weeks ago, I went home. My cousin (more like a sister coz our dads are twins), mum to my beautiful niece Crystal, gave me one of her skirts that does not fit anymore. Funny enough, its a high-low skirt, but I did not know that’s what they are called.
{For those like me, a high-low skirt is one which the hemline is not even. Some parts are shorter than others.} 
Now, I have to tell you that I love that skirt that my cousin gave me and I just wanna show you the beauty in these skirts, so you can understand why am crushing really hard.
