Top - Chico's
Skirt - Love Culture
Shoes - Born O Concept
When I purchased this skirt I initially couldn't put it on, as my hips were too wide. I don't wear large hips pads, but I always wear them. In the dressing room it occurred to me that I could take them out, revolutionary! I was then barely able to get the skirt up and get Jules to zip it.
I took a step back in the mirror and realized that I still had a bit of curve to me even without them and further more that this skirt helps to show it off. Obviously, I bought it. Surprisingly, being as it is so small, it is still quite comfy. It is denim, but with a bit of stretch.
In the pictures I don't have any hip pads on, which is a total first for me, and I also have no inserts for breast. It is an extremely well padded bra, but nothing actually in it besides me. Which I do on occasion, especially if it is going to be hot; it was 100 degrees outside on this day.
An interesting thing for me is the sizing of the top. I had never shopped in a Chico's before. They size their clothes by number, like 1, 2, or 3. I think the top I have on is a 3. Which is a large. It was interesting walking through the store and not having any idea what sizes to try on. I just picked up whatever and went for it.
I wore this outfit when Jules and I went and saw Maleficent. It was great. We both really enjoyed it. I also liked the after discussion between my wife and I and Google about the history behind some fairy tales. Fascinating stuff actually.
Oh and on a side note, have you noticed how much I have been wearing these same shoes? Lots! They are comfy.
