Sometimes I get fashion inspiration from blogs, magazines and clothing stores, but a lot of the time I also see girls around the city who are doing it so right and get ideas from them. Last week at work another manager and I helped a young woman who was wearing a light denim skirt, which we both proceeded to lust over.
When I really want an item like that on a whim, I usually try to first think of what I already have at home that can achieve a similar look. In this case, I have neither a denim skirt nor dress, so I set out to see if I could find a good deal on one I loved. As per usual Forever 21 came to the rescue.
Initially I wasn’t sure about the snaps in the front, but once I tried it on I actually liked the addition. It really reminds me of something I would have had as a kid, and is a nice 90’s revival. Plus it is soft and has a nice bit of elastic at the back so the waistband isn’t uncomfortable.
