Bringing The Mini Skirt Back

Wearing: Topshop Top, Free People Denim Mini Skirt, Moschino Belt, Chloe Platform Sandals, Valentino Clutch Purse, and Tom Ford Sunglasses

Location: Catch LA, West Hollywood, California, USA

Denim has really made a comeback since the times where Britney and Justin's denim overload ensemble made magazine covers. I've been all in with this comeback, stocking up on denim jackets, ripped denim pants, high waisted denim shorts. You get the idea. But, my closet was missing one thing: the denim mini skirt. So when I found this Free People one I knew I had to press "add to cart" ASAP. 

Truthfully the skirt didn't look soooo mini online. I thought okay if it's relatively short on a 5'10"+ model, it won't be too long on me. And then the skirt came in the mail. 

Boy, this skirt is MINI. Like so mini. Mini on me and I'm only 5'2". I have no clue how it even fit on a model. Also, like most Free People items, it's made for people with wide hips. So on me, it's snug on my thighs but loose on my hips, which makes for a bit of a weird fit. 

However, I always say "no pain, no gain" when it comes to fashion. So I sucked it up, ignored the cons of this skirt and focused on the pros. Pro: IT'S REALLY CUTE. haha. And yes, it's short but it hits right below my butt and is longer than most of my shorts. So acceptable? Absolutely yes. Another pro is that because the mini skirt is actually a MINI skirt, it makes me look tall! 

So for my birthday I wore this outfit out to dinner at Catch. Adding the Moschino belt and the Chloe platforms shoes dressed it up a little without going overboard. I wanted it to still look casual since here in LA we're still burning in the summer heat.
