|Sisterhood Review: Eco-Friendly Handmade Skirt
||[Nov. 3rd, 2010|08:18 pm]
Yes folks, you read that right... me... in a skirt. And smiling, to boot! For those that know me, you know I only wear dresses or skirts maybe 2-3 times a year, but I'm trying really hard to bust out the girly side (heh, who knew one existed, right?) and wear them more frequently (baby steps. I'm still wearing shorts underneath them!)
Most skirts that you find in the stores look like they barely cover your undies, so I knew that wasn't the direction I wanted to go in. I finally found one that is long enough to leave me not blushing, and completely able to bend over, sit down, and do a mean hi-ya karate kick! Not to mention it is ridiculously comfy and since it's brown, it goes with almost anything! Kudos to Hip Mountain Mama (http://www.hipmountainmama.com/ecofrbrsk.html) for providing this amazing skirt. I'm planning on wearing this later this month when I give thanks to the mashed potatoes, and send a silent "I'm sorry" to all the turkeys (hey, vegetarians can enjoy T-Day, too, but I still feel guilty for others eating that silly looking bird). I think it will go great with my maroon tights and Toms shoes. Now what to wear on top!
It will last me through many seasons and many pairings, and I feel great wearing it because it's organic cotton and hemp, two of my favorite pairings. It's a little snug right now, but I'm hoping with a little lovin, it will stretch out a little bit. The waistband itself is pretty stretchy (and since I'm so short), I can wear it at my hip for extra length and coverage, or pulled up to my actual waist (that hasn't happened in about 15 years!) for some knee-length action. After all, knee caps are so hot!
