I definitely got busted by several different people whilst doing this outfit photo shoot. I can only imagine how strange I must have looked to them. Me alone with a camera and a tripod…walking around a parking lot taking pictures of myself. But, despite my embarrassment, I realized something. I’ve always been a little weird. A little different than most people around me. I’ve gotten a bit used to not fitting in, and in some ways, if I weren’t weird, well, I wouldn’t be normal. If that makes sense.
Anywho, I decided to try out a high skirt with a button down top look. When styled this way, it’s what I call the “saggy b**b” (typo’ed on purpose to try to ward off weird searches pulling this post) look. Because, well…look at it. (Is it just me who has had this thought recently?)
Here’s another example. I dunno, it may be sorta SB-ish, but I think she still looks cute. (image found via google search and used for explanation/education – if you’re the owner and you want me to take it down, please contact me at thechiclife at gmail dot com and I will remove it asap)
I’ve seen this in several magazines and on various fashion blogs, and the look has baffled me. I can’t understand why it’s so popular. I can understand that sometimes you need to tuck your top in and you don’t want it to be tucked in too tightly or too loosely. Perhaps this is just the result?
I tried to tuck my top in a little extra in an attempt to ward off the offending frontal vibe, but this may just not be the look for me? It doesn’t seem to be as noticeable when the top is a non-button-down, though. Who knows?!
And here I am spinning around in an empty parking lot to show movement of the fabrics in my outfit. Because this is what normal people do every day. Right? Right.
