Sophistique Noir's Monthly Theme : Maxi Skirts

                                                


This month's theme for Sophistique Noir is Maxi Skirts and I don't own too many long skirts any more, but this Lip Service skirt does the trick!


I paired the black twill skirt with another Lip Service item, the ruffled long sleeve top from their Blacklist collection. I love the ruffled blouse, it's cotton and versatile, which is reminding me that I need to wear this top more often! My black and white striped jacket is one of my most favorite pieces, it was a lucky find at Forever 21 3-4 years ago, Derek is very jealous of this striped wonder.


I wanted to break up all the black with an elastic belt to draw in my waist and add some visual interest. I love those ruffles!


The skirt is nice that it zips down into a trump style, but it came with this horrible lace insert that I cut out, I thought the skirt was too casual with the twill and the lace made it look tacky. The strap is also a weird detail sitting right under my bum, but I liked it so I decided not to snip it off. Oh fussy nonsense details, you annoy me. *Wink* I don't quite understand why alternative clothing comes with these extra bells and whistles that (in my opinion) tend to make the garment look cheap. Good thing I have really sharp scissors!

Thanks for reading!!!

  1. I love their Blacklist line. I'm glad you had at least one long skirt to feature today! :) That jacket is so awesome, too. I'm not too into stripes unless they are done *just right* which that jacket definitely is!

  2. Lovely outfit! :) It is very well put together and the belt certainly adds visual interest to it.

    1. I'm a big fan of belts, I think it adds more curve to my figure since I am 'pear shaped'.

  3. I can understand that the lace insert might have look unneccesary and unpractical. The skirt is very nice and it reminds me of a maxiskirt I have in my closet that I weigh to much to be able to wear. I need to loose weight.

    1. You look great the way you are, but if the skirt is a healthy motivator, then good luck! <3
