I’ll admit, when I saw these longer skirts in the spring issues of my magazines, I was more than a little apprehensive. Long skirts? I thought. Eww, no thanks! But when I got past the hippie element, I began to love this new trend. Sure, I’ll always be partial to minis, but it’s good to mix it up, no? I think a basic one would look perfect with a lacy blouse and floppy hat to shield my eyes from the sun. The next challenge will be finding a skirt that won’t overpower my somewhat petite 5’4″ frame and finding an outfit that will compliment it perfectly. What do you think of this trend? Is it the loveliest thing you’ve ever seen or best left to the 1970’s?
See that mark on my left foot? That came from the Forever 21 opening in my town on Saturday. I was waiting in the very very long line (2 hours before it opened at 8 am, and some people even slept overnight!) and went to throw away my water bottle when I tripped over a tree stump- greaaat! I’m a bit of a klutz.
Even though I absolutely ADORE the fact that there’s a brand-spanking-new Forever 21 five minutes away from my school, It’s going to be hard to resist buying yet another cardigan, headband, or skirt when I actually need something like, let’s see, books?
Anyways. The outfit. This is basically the standard Shariki uniform: A top of some sort, floral skirt, cardigan, pearls, and a headband. Sometimes I like to mix it up with a dress- gasp! I’m trying to branch out with my style a little, but it’s very hard when there are so many pretty skirtsthat are now at my my fingertips, at Forever 21!
If you didn’t guess this already, Forever 21 is my favorite store.
I’ve decided to start a blog, yay! In the past year or so, I’ve attempted to create numerous blogs, but I suffered from lack of inspiration. I already have a tumblr and a polyvore but this will be more of a fashion journal. I’ll focus on my style, gush over some of the collections at Fashion Week, and basically blog about anything and everything fashion related. My goal in the next ten years is to live in a fabulous apartment in Manhattan and have started my career as a humble designer. Alas, I’m just fifteen years old and living in a almost too casual suburban town. A girl can dream, can’t she?
I love love love all things classy and girly, so let’s end with my favorite quote of all time:
“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
