STRIPES, SHAPE AND VOLUME


Jacket - Jenny Hällström
Skirt - my Mother's old, modified by me
Shoes - Sixtyseven You


I love the volume of this skirt. And the fact that it has huuuge pockets that can fit most of what my handbag does (ok, I'm referring to a quite small handbag here but anyway). My mom re-discovered it in her closet at our summerplace last year and figured I'd like it. Originally a bit longer, I've taken the hem up a bit but sewn it with loose stiches quite far from each other to make the hem all fluffy and puffy. The skirt has an elastic lace belt in the waist that gives it a great shape and a rounded hip. And a big behind. Which is great. Booty, hell yeah!

You sew it up quite recently, right (or since after last summer)? I remember it was longer. I think it fits you actually even better now.

I love the way you mix elements old and new, to create such a stunning look. But what I love most are the shoes. Love that red!

lovely as hell! I'm trying to avoid everything that gives a bigger behind, I wish I had a tiny small ass. Yours looks great, though :)

Sariti : thank you dear

Anna : I actualy have quiite much of a derrière already and I tried to "dress it away" and wished it was smaller for years and years. But now I just realized it's better the way it is, phew, what a relief!
