We were all ready to arch an eyebrow, purse our lips, and say, Girl, That is NOT Your Skirt, but we’re starting to reconsider.

Mainly because it’s a really cute skirt. Thing is, she’s got this thing yanked up to provide maximum thigh uncoverage and we don’t think that’s the way to go, especially when you wear a shapeless, untucked blouse over it. The result: a whole bunch of horizontal lines placed exactly – and only – at the hips, surrounded by alternating patches of blackness that cause the rest of her body to recede in pictures. In essence, she took a cute skirt and turned it into a “THESE ARE MY HIPS” neon sign.
Mind you, there’s not a thing wrong with her hips, but since the rest of her body is obscured, all you see are her hips. Proportionally speaking, this isn’t working.
Girl, you need to yank that thing down a good 3 inches, where God intended it to sit. Then you need to find a pair of matte tights in a dark color that isn’t black but that picks up on some of the rich colors in the skirt; a rich burgundy, maybe. You need to burn that horrible blouse, find a crisp, white, fitted oxford-style blouse, tuck it in, slap on a belt and roll up the sleeves. Or, if you’re feeling chilly, put on a fitted jacket over it that comes in at the waist and flares out ever so slightly at the hips. Then you’ll be shapely and colorful and we would stop bothering you and registering our disapproval at the sight of you and your poor styling choices.
Oh, and your lashes are freaking us the hell out. Stop doing that to them.
