I was so excited when I read Kendra's Reader Submission for today because I have been wondering the EXACT same thing about this skirt. So, I can't wait to see what you guys say! Kendra is a smokin' hot mother of one and is one the most fun girls around. Believe me, I would know. I spent 12 hours a day with her in a 90 degree swimming pool for several months of my life. And no, we weren't just lounging-- we were dealing with screaming children-- and it is pretty hard to be fun in a situation like that. Take it away, Kendra!
Yesterday my husband asked me ever so politely if I had any skirts that were a little less...poochy. Who wants to hear that?! Since I am on the very thrifty side with my husband being in grad school, I get 99% of my fashion from consignment stores. You can't beat a skirt for $3.50! But with that price, I'm worried that I'm giving off a "grandma gertrude" vibe instead of "hey, this is cool vintage." Since having a baby 7 months ago, I am very conscious of my mid section. A pooch is the last thing I want.
So my question is, should these blast from the past skirts be left on the rack or can this momma still wear them without people awkwardly pondering if I have another baby in my womb?
Do my hips look like they're still in birthing mode? And, does the skirt need to be tapered at the bottom so it doesn't look like my hips run from my waist to my calf? [Sorry about the wrinkles. I swear it was all pressed that morning :)]
