I used to be a bit wary about wearing midi skirts because I was told it will make me look stumpy but in the last several years I can’t get enough of them.

Tip: Make sure your skirt is high-waisted and paired with heels.

I think mid-length skirts are universally flattering that instantly evoke a retro vibe and a stylish element that can be classy, funky, or dramatic. Don’t get me wrong, I love showing my legs with the mini, but there’s a quiet sex appeal with the mid length that’s so much more alluring when less skin is shown.I know it’s a style that’s not for all. I’m curious what you think about the midi and why you prefer not to wear it..?

As the weather heats up for summer, I can’t help but embrace (translation: be obsessed with) flirty and playful skirts, prints and patterns. Lucky for me, one of my favorite print is a classic… Those Pretty Polka Dots…This flirty, retro and whimsical trend is timeless and when it’s on a fun flirty skirt like this pleated little number, it exudes an undeniably youthful flair that’s incredibly timeless.

I wasn’t going to customized skirts for a while but I kept coming across amazing fabric, prints and colors (more will be coming soon). It’s hard juggling a full time career and a full time passion…I just need more hours in a day or 2-3 more hands. :)

You can purchase this Pretty Little Polka Dots skirt HERE which can be customized to fit your waist and your desired length (16″ – 20″).

As much as I love to make a statement with loud colors and bold prints, sometimes less is more. I like pairing fitted basics usually in a dark shade like these slim fitting high waisted jeans with a cohesive basic black tank and a pair of simple heels…but how do you make a simple outfit stand out? The trick is with key accessories like a fun printed bag or a pop of color from your heels or jewelry. With the right accessories, I think being minimal makes just as big of a statement as an extravagant outfit. :)

If there is one word I cannot remember for the life of me to spell, it would be juxtapose. I don’t even know why, but somehow I always find myself spell checking to make sure it’s spelled correctly. Well, even if I don’t pass the spelling bee contest because of it, I’m still very much infatuated with juxtaposing outfits. In my opinion, some of the most interesting outfits usually come from mixing different elements of color and ordinary, classic and trendy, edgy and sweet…breaking up the expected and pairing it with the unexpected. Oh, I also hate the word hors d’oeuvres. Who came up with these words? :)

Shop this skirt HERE on Sunday, June 23rd

As you can probably guess, I’m a huge fan of all things girly… Flowy, check. Twirly, check. Bows, check. Pleats, check. Fun, feminine skirts, double checks! I started making these double bow skirts a little over a year ago when I couldn’t find a certain look that I had envisioned. I wanted the bows to be structured, boxy, over-sized and rather unique compared to the typical princess bows that’s pinched in the middle (like these).

A few tries later and this was what I came up with and I’ve been in love ever since! I’m so excited that I’ll be able to share one of my favorite creations when my online store launches this Sunday! It has been a long, sleepless and hectic process getting a small business up and running but it’s all worth it knowing I can share what I love.

The available colors for purchase will be red, pink and purple. I’m excited and hope you will love these as much as I do!

Please note: the length of the skirt I’m wearing is 16 inches but the ones available for purchase will be as follow: Size Small and Medium – 17″ long. Size Large – 18″ long.

If you have a certain color that you love, please leave let me know in the comment below!
