Skirt problem: Solved!

I found a pseudo-solution to the F21 skirts/dresses problem. Get a larger size and wear them on your hips! Genious... (*flips hair*)

Skirt: F21 pink ruffles skirt (here)
Top: Limited black short sleeved turtleneck
Sweater: Juicy Couture ivory cardigan
Belt: Anthro's tea rose (here)
Necklace: strand of pearls from ?
Shoes: Steve Madden slouch boots

I didn't have time to take a full shot this morning, so it's hard to see the whole thing... but you're smart and you get the idea.

Another solution for skirts is always a slip or slip skirt underneath... I am a little sad that this one from Sock Dreams is so short, or else it would be mine in a splity.

How cute would that lace be sticking out from a simple A-line black skirt? Ohhhh love. Maybe a tailor could add length at the top... or maybe I'll just buy it to look at it. Sigh. :)


  1. Oh! That cardigan + belt is such a nice touch to that whole outfit. I need more interesting cardy's. All I have are button up one's that shout all sorts of boring.

  2. You are so right about the larger size I do this a lot for f21 because I love the skirt it is way too short. Cute outfit!

  3. That is a great idea because I have been thinking that if the skirts weren't so short, I would buy some. However, I am a size 6 and already wear the largest size they carry (which is a Large) UGH.

  4. Ummm that is RIDICULOUS that a size 6 is a large! Geez! Guess they really mean business about that forever TWENTY ONE thing... yeah, I'm a 0-2 and I got the medium to fit on my hips. You have to wonder who wears their XS skirts!

  5. Thanks! I wasn't sure it worked, but I think it does. This cardi is so great, I can wear it with just about anything. I rarely buy Juicy because of the prices, but I got a discount with my dad's job... works for me! :)

  6. thank you thank you! I just wish they added a little length so I could wear it higher.

  7. You look absolutely adorable today Justine - Love the whole outfit, and I do the same thing with Forever 21's skirts - size up and wear low! It works everytime. I got so sick of never being able to wear their cute skirts because I looked like a hooker!

  8. Thanks girl! Haha, I thought about this as I was putting it on, "This is a very Kim outfit." :)

  9. Hahaha, what a great idea. And it cracks me up, because I've totally worn skirts from American Apparel as short dresses before. Here I thought I was the only genius... ;)

    And I totally gave in and ordered the Newport News shoes. IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME.
