Violette 10x30: The Unflattering Skirt

Top - H&M
Jacket - Dex
Skirt - Lapis via Winners
Tights - ???
Shoes - DKNY via Winners
Bracelet - Gift (merci Cat!)

Second extra item here. (Without the 3D cat, haha!) This brownish-grey skirt is something I bought last fall. I really felt in love with the texture, but it's hard to wear without looking like a gnome. It's a little bit on the longer side, it's not a midi skirt but it's just below the knee. This ain't flattering at all. I was once wearing it to work and then I went to Forever 21... boy did I feel like an old and frumpy woman. Oh well, what's ugly to some is beautiful to others, no?

So that's why I added this item to my 5 extra items. This time, I wore it with a somewhat short top and high heels to give me a few inches. And I also found out that my bracelet kind of matched the buttons of the jacket, I think I deserve bonus points for that!


  1. Tu mérites toujours des points bonis pour l'effort! Ça fait changement des mini-jupes, ton kit. Mais c'est très joli!

  2. Merci Rose! :)

    Mais attends de voir ma "maxi skirt" quand je vais enfin en avoir trouvé une! ;)

  3. Oh quel bel ensemble ! Les photos sont très jolies aussi. Tu as le tour, Violette, de te mettre en valeur ;)

  4. I think it's cute and classy, but you could always chop off a few inches to make it more wearable!

  5. Tu portes bien cette jupe. C'est l'habitude de la longueur qui n'est pas là. Ce n'est pas nécessaire de mesurer 6 pieds pour cette longueur, mais ça aide disons......

  6. You have the cutest hair!! It steals the skirt's spotlight!
