The little black skirt
August 16, 2009 § 21 Comments
We’ve all heard about the importance of a ’little black dress’ but for me the ‘little black skirt’ is just equally important. Think about the things you could pair it with; a plain white shirt for a sleek, streamlined look, a sheer, black blouse for a sexy, vampy look, or a sequined tank for a more of a fun look. I’ve been playing with ’LBS’ designs for quite some time now and could never really settle for a silhouette or fabric. I finally settled on making two skirts!
This is a petticoat style skirt. It’s kinda fun, youthful for the dreaded summer.
This I’ve had in my head for ages! It’s a 80s/90s ‘double skirt’. I never thought I could pull the tighter style off but I look better than I imagined. It’s a little ‘snug’ but I’m using it as ‘thinsipration’, so I can wear this and bend down without fear of the seam bursting or zipper coming undone (BTW the zipper’s actually white for contrast and a bit of fun)
So, have you got a ‘little black skirt’?
PS. Sorry about the quality of the first picture, I was trying to sharpen it up on photoshop because it was very blurry. If any of you know how to focus a picture while it’s on self timer, please, do share!
