still seeing stripes, and I copied this skirt
a. they didn't notice or b. they've come to expect this sort of thing from me. Either way, this is why I have to blog my daily outfits; no one in the real world gives a shit about how much time and effort I put into getting dressed in the morning. I think it's just an automatic exercise and a tedious requirement for most people to put on clothing each day, and bloggers are among the small fraction of the population (along with celebrities, stylists, editors and high school girls) who really concentrate on important things like which belt or shoes would best compliment a certain skirt. I feel like the world would be a much more fabulous place if more people appreciated dressing up, and if we were all as forthcoming with compliments to real people as we are in the blogosphere. Look good, feel good, do good. All the world's problems: solved.
I digress, let's focus on the see-through striped skirt. If the print looks familiar it's because it is; I wore a shirt of the same material yesterday. This skirt was directly inspired by an image I saw on Kendi's pinterest board. This midi-length skirt from ASOS took my breath away and was the sole purpose for buying this fabric. I like the contradiction between the sheer quality of the fabric and the demure midi-length. In certain lighting I think the transparency is lost (which is not an all-together bad thing), but this skirt will always call for leggings, tights or a longer shirt or skirt underneath. I debated on whether it would even be appropriate for the office, but apparently no one notices anything I wear anyways so it doesn't matter.
