A week or so ago, I was asked to participate in a blogger affiliate program with Sugarlips, a brand that sells women's fashion and was started in L.A. ten years ago. They have some really great pieces, and the prices are totally reasonable! I picked out this Blooming Gardenias skirt to try for a couple of reasons.
- I don't have anything with the high-low hem trend yet, and I wanted to try it out.
- I don't have a lot of florals and want to fill that void in my wardrobe. Two birds with one
Their website and another blogger paired the skirt with a black bustier for a more dressed up look. I think that would look great for a night out! I decided to do something a little more casual/work appropriate. I paired it with my all-too-common plain tee in mint and added some gold jewelry. I think I'd like it better with a white tee, but my only one is too big. There are a lot of colors in the skirt, but I didn't want it to come off too matchy-matchy, so I just picked something that coordinated with the colors in the skirt. How did I do?!

i'm just glad that beam was sturdy
That's my model pose. I'm a total pro! (sarcasm, in case you didn't catch that.) Ok, back to the skirt. I'm really happy with it, and I'm so glad that's what they sent me. The material kind of reminds me of skirts I used to wear to church as a kid, but it's a fond memory, so I don't mind. It's sort of like chiffon...but it's polyester and not as soft. It does have good movement though, and the colors really pop! I would definitely encourage you to look through their selection. I honestly think there's something for everyone there.
