Disaster in the Making
Last fall I purchased the In the Trees skirt because I thought it was super cute and a great fall piece. This skirt, however, is a disaster on me. My legs are way to wide for this. I have to take tiny mouse steps when I wear this skirt. Stairs are fairly impossible, so I take the elevator at work when I have this on. It also puckers at the top, making my belly look much much bigger than it is, due to the extra fabric gathered there. Too, after I sit, it completely bunches up in the back and I have to go into the restroom take it off entirely, adjust the lining, and put it back on. True story. I had to do this 3 times at work on Monday when I wore this. Seriously not worth it. WHY do I wear it? Alas, I continue to wear it because it was expensive (I did buy it on sale) and it is unique and cute. I'm sure it's a piece I'll only wear once MAYBE twice a year. of course, I could lose a few pounds and then not run into the issues mentioned above. I love chocolate cake too much, though, so I am not sure if that is a serious possibility.
