You are not a saint



Skirt, shoes and mini bag -& Other Stories // basic tee - ASOS // Fringe necklace- Forever21 // Pearl and turquoise necklace- Vintage  #teenvogue

Oh this skirt, what an epic love story. I saw it online but it was sold out in all sizes but the largest, so, the strategic stalking began. Finally, after a few weeks of obsessive shopping disorder one came back in so I dived on it. When it was delivered, what a good thing to come home to, I hugged it and loved it, then tried it on... Oh.. issue. Either my bum is disproportionately large or the zip in this skirt was too short. Regardless, the only way to get it on was over my head. Distraught, the love affair was over. I desperately tried to find it when I was in London, the shop assistant must have thought I had a problem as I explained my butt to waist ratio and cursed my genetics. No avail. By then I was way past my return date as well so I had two options, build a shrine to my once glorious love or get the scissors out. Scissors and a new zip later my faith in true love was restored.

Forever yours skirt,
(unless my bum increases again in size)

  2. I love these photos and your beautiful flippy skirt! My butt is definitely too big for my body so I can relate. I wish I had your sewing skills. ;)
