Time to Minimize It

Greetings Fashion Pad Readers,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! As I said on Saturday, I did a 'lil shopping with my mom and sister. It was fun.......actually, I really don't know a time I've been shopping and it hasn't been fun, lol!

However, I did notice one little item that seems almost nonexistent in my wardrobe.......the mini skirt. I have always had trouble picking up this essential staple. Part of the reason is that the styles have not been very flattering to my curvy shape....I mean, I really don't need my hips to be enhanced any more they they already are. Also, I cringe at the fact that one little wrong move and all my goodies are exposed to the public, lol! Silly thought since I ADORE mini dresses but it is what it is.

Well, I'm falling for the lovely styles and shapes of this season's skirts so I'm going to make an effort to incorporate them into my wardrobe. Take at look at some of the styles I'm feeling:

For Curvy Figures

These skirts skim over the hips, camoflauge large thighs, and create a defined waist (especially with an attached belt)

For an Athletic Build
It's best to obtain a skirt that "creates" a more feminine build through pleats or ruffles. A little volume never hurts either.
