Vintage Inspired Outfit Post: Navy Au Lait

Sunday, November 11, 2012

There must be a blue moon out because I'm doing an outfit post! Haha! Okay, cheesey jokes aside, I was really quite excited to finally find something in my closet to wear with this pleated skirt from Sugarlips. Of course when I looked back on my outfit photos I realized I wore the skirt sideways the entire day, but I still like how it looked, so it's kind of cool that you can wear this vintage inspired skirt two different ways!

Did I do all right? LOL.

One of the biggest complaints I have about modern day skirts is that they very rarely fit me at the actual waist and I am quite happy to say that this skirt from Sugarlips fits so well! I really hate when skirts hit low on the waist, I like my waist bands to fit me right AT the waist (I have this theory that women that wear clothes at their actual waist bands have slimmer waists) so it was a nice surprise that this fit so well as most contemporary sized clothing when marked as an XS or a size 0 never actually are (I'm talking to you Anthropologie!!!)

And on the topic of skirts, I bought a skirt yesterday at a consignment shop in downtown LA by a French brand and it's marked a size 6 with a 24" waist. Augh, modern day sizing is so baffling to me. I do wish that clothes for women were sized like men's clothes. 30", 32", 34". It would make dressing so much easier!
