16 ways to annoy people:

1. Specify that your drive-thru order is “to go.”

2. If you have a glass eye, tap on it occasionally with your pen while talking to others.

3. Start each meal by conspicuously licking all your food, and announce that this is so no one will “swipe your grub.”

5. Insist on keeping your car windshield wipers running in all weather conditions “to keep them tuned up.”

6. Reply to everything someone says with “that’s what you think.”

8. Follow a few paces behind someone, spraying everything they touch with a can of Lysol.

9. Make beeping noises when a large person backs up.

10. Do not add any inflection to the end of your sentences, producing awkward silences with the impression that you’ll be saying more any moment.

13. Leave the copy machine set to reduce 200%, extra dark, 17 inch paper, 99 copies.

3 ways to wear a skirt:

Look 1: by the hour… glass
I took Dave Matthews seriously when he said, “hike up your skirt a little more.” You can pull long skirts up to your chest and sport them as a dress instead. Try belting it to add a little more shape.

Sally Scott skirt (gift from Marlena [thankies, Marlena! I love it xD])
vintage glasses and brooch
LeTigre cardigan sweater
hot pink belt (swapped with Lydia)
nylon socks from ebay
Melissa shoes

Look 2: trapeze swinger
Same skirt-worn-as-a-dress trick, except in a trapeze silhouette—it’s most forgiving on days when you’re feeling bloated. Also, did somebody say all you can eat buffet? Bring it on.

Mickey Mouse watch (gift from my mom)
Slow and Steady wins the Race oxfords
thrifted Polo brown leather belt
straw boater hat from ebay

Look 3: skirting the issue
Of course, sometimes a skirt is best worn as such. I like the idea of balancing out the demure length and fancy style of this one by pairing it with a casual cropped sweatshirt.

I love how playful this shoot was and how you styled each photo. I really love the quirky charm of the print. Each of the three looks seems to be very, very comfortable and wearable but with a good fashion flair. I honestly think, though, that the two first silhouettes would not work with my frame. I have short legs and skinny arms, but big boobs. Those two looks would make me look fat. 🙁

I honestly love the last look best, but not because it’s a skirt being a skirt, but I guess because it would be the most wearable and flattering on my frame.

You look so great! I love all your photos. So profesh.

Mae Lu, thereafterish.

i love the way you styled this skirt! if i had to pick a favorite, i’d go with look #1. i really like how you added a belt to accent the natural waist.

(plus the print on this skirt is awesome!!)
