I Dream In Colors

When I saw this skirt at H&M, I tried to resist but the vibrancy of the fuchsia color and interesting fanned-out pleats made of a random sporty material kept calling me back. Yup, I have no self control. I love the way the pleats hold its shape and the length is so ladylike. Plus it’s the perfect mate to my teal blouse (last worn here)…So here it is, hung in my room next to the many colors that are dominating my closet these days.

Opposites may not always attract, but when it comes to color-blocking, colors on the opposite side of the spectrum can create a beautiful unity. Mixing colors is nothing new but it’s one of my favorite trend that I’ll never get tired off and will rock until I am gray and wrinkled.

What about you, are you tired of this trend yet?

Connect The Dots

I don’t just have a crush on full girly skirts, I’m kinda obsessed with them.

Since I’m a huge fan of those fun, full and flirty skirts, I decided why not add them to my little KTRcollection. This skirt is so much fun and I felt like a total girly girl when I wore it this weekend. The bold polka dots against the bright white fabric really pop. I can’t wait to pair it with a floral top or a loose cotton purple top tucked snugly in the waist.

I think people tend to shy away from full skirts because of added unwanted pounds, but it actually wouldn’t if the cut was right. The waistband has to be perfectly situated on the smallest of the waist and the pleats has to start out at the right place with enough volume for that added flare. If you’re slender, these skirts will give you shape, and if you’re thick and beautiful, these skirt will accentuate your curves.

What are your thoughts on full skirts?
