I know you wouldn't think so to look at it, but this outfit was sooo uncomfortable. First of all, the skirt is a pencil skirt with no back slit, and though I wore it before and enjoyed it, today I had to do a lot of getting up and down from sitting on the floor, and it was way too restrictive.
The major disappointment about this outfit, however, were the undergarments. I wore these brand new maroon We Love Colors tights along with a pair of Luvees, and the experience was awful. The We Love Colors site doesn't mention anything specific about the difference between the $5 and the $15 plus size tights, so I went ahead and got three pairs of the $5. Big mistake. These were already starting to bag when I got out of the car this morning, and at the end of the day you can see how they turned out (if you can't, just click on the image for the larger version).
I wore the Luvees over the tights, hoping to eliminate that "swish swish" in addition to getting rid of pain from my thighs rubbing together. Well, I don't know if I need to go down a size or if it was because of the baggy tights or my pencil skirt being too tight, but the Luvees rode up between my thighs just like any old pair of shorts and exposed my thighs to rubbing.
I was really disappointed, because several bloggers have sung the praises of Luvees, including Lilli, whose style I greatly admire. I was so excited to get my WLC tights and my Luvees because I thought it was going to be cute skirts from here on out. Boy, was I wrong!
The tunic/shirt is actually soft and super comfortable, but maybe I will belt it next time. Any other suggestions on how I can improve this outfit?
