Aloha! How are you today? I’m fine but I feel like I have nothing to wear. Ever. I do have clothes but hardly any of them can be pulled together in a coherent manner. Nightmare.
So I’ve been pouring over outfit posts by my favourite fashion bloggers to see if I can learn some lessons from what they’re wearing. Having done that, I think I now know the cause of my wardrobe calamity – a mega lack of easy-to-wear essentials.
While I have the black pants, the denim jacket, white tee and boyfriend blazer, I remain in desperate need of skirts and duh, duh, duh – the body suit! Yes, that bizarre looking number from the 80’s should be my friend. Many of my best-loved bloggers pair A-Line skirts with body suits and it's such a cute look. In summer, you can wear it with bare legs and in winter, you can warm it up with tights. Plus, mixing and matching block colours with prints is probably something even I can manage. Nice!
The reason this combo appeals to me so much is because I really struggle to find clothes that flatter my shape which is of the dreaded pear variety. I seem to live in denim pencil skirts with tees and I’m SO bored of this. I think one of the reasons we had A-line skirts as part of our school uniform was because not only are they practical but flattering as well. Team one with a body suit that sucks you in and smoothes out any bumps and you’re good to go.
Alrighty, let’s get dressed already! Well, not me I’m afraid. I can't find any cute A-line skirts or body suits in our local shops and yet the European chains are stocked to the brim with them. All the time. Tucking in a tightish tee is no good either. It wriggles up and who needs that. Not me, I tells ya.
So until I find some skirts, I think I’m going to ask my mom to sew me some. *Hi mom, please. Hee. I'll ring you later. Love you* A friend of mine is coming down from the UK in March so perhaps I can ask her to bring me a body suit or two.*Hi Kath! I'll email you. Mwah.* Body suit is a funny name. It’s not much of a suit is it? If you see any in the shops, please let me know! Or if you can sew me a skirt, that would be awesome as well. You’ll bring order to my wardrobe and that is a truly noble deed. Here are some skirts and body suits I found on Polyvore. What do you think of this look? Would you wear any of these? x
