Take a moment to think of those times when life just works and things go your way. Do you have something in mind? Well keep that feeling of warm fuzzy for a moment as you read about how this hot skirt came to be mine. It’s not a long story. But a necessary one. This Torrid denim, high waisted pencil skirt was sent to me on the arms of a blonde angel. A smiley, cheerful angel. New with tags. I could hear the chorus. The light at the end of the fashion tunnel.

I wanted it.

Luckily for me, friend and said angel Olivia from Wait Until the Sunset understood my pre-Christmas broke’ness and let me take it home with me from the Plus Size Clothes Market and pay her later. What a gem. A legend. A doll. And a saint. The only issue I have is that with the sleek, structure line of the skirt and the solid fit of the denim, I’m having trouble sitting down in this baby. Ask Hubby, it’s a bit of a sight, I’m sure.

Wiggle skirt would be an understatement. It seems a tad ridiculous to own a skirt that only really looks good standing up, but there are plenty of occasions you have to stand up at. Isn’t there? While writing this I can’t help but think of none. No occasions where it’s a requirement to stand the whole way through. Except maybe a BBQ or something…  So fingers crossed it gives a little or I just get better at sitting in it, because it’s just too cute to give up.

Check it ooooout.

  • Oh you little raspberry bombshell… LOVE

  • Life is better when you’re standing. Or something like that. x

    • It is, of course, unless it’s in uncomfortable heels, then not so much…. We have totally missed our calling as philosophers! Haha.

    It is a beautiful skirt!

    And yes; I own a beautiful blue dress from Carmakoma. I can sit in it alright.. But when I get up it’s all wrinkled. And it doesn’t look that nice. But the dress is beautiful.


    • It is, right!? So gorgeous, worth standing up for. Haha. YES! I get that too, darn the crinkle.

  • Amaaaaazing! I’d find a way to make it work, dont give up!

    • Thank you Naomi. I’m a stubborn little thing, I’m going to persist. 😉

  • It’s so cute! Most of my clothes look best when standing up, without the roll of tummy that appears over the edge as soon as I take a seat, haha!

    • Thank you. They do, right? Same thing happens here. Darn you belly, get out of the way of my clothes. Haha. 😉

  • hello_owl

    standing room only. you crack me up! Can Kevin Horn do a vlog of you trying to sit down 😛

    • Haha. Not a chance buddy! However, Amanda Claire and I hope to make some more vlogs to keep ourselves entertained. Maybe I’ll try and sit in it for one of those. 😛

  • It looks really gorgeous! ALmost ALL of my clothes used to be standing room only. Until I realized I had to stop torturing myself. So now, I don’t, or at least I don’t wear them anymore if I can’t sit in them.

    • Thank you Vera. Surely, for this baby, you would make an exception! Haha. I hear you, loud and clear, mostly I have the same rule for myself. Mostly. 😉

  • Melissa Mitchell

    Oh. I want that skirt!
