System Skirts

System skirts must be worn very carefully.

*You must trim your butt.

*You must try to keep your legs together at all times.

It can be done. I saw this one over at Shai and noticed something a little different. The designer understands the weaknesses of the system skirt.

Textures can be a pain in the rear with system skirts but Shai Delacroix has gone out of her way to make this as painless as possible. Take a look at the black trim along the hemline. You can see the tight little corner as it goes up. This means a much trimmer look as you stand/walk. This is how a system skirt can work.

Of course the rest of the dress is absolutely stunning - from the beautiful tube top with it's clean molded look to the sash which has detailed little folds that accent the waist.

I sort of went with the Mrs. Robinson look in the Graduate. I searched for a sophisticated makeup and beehive hairdo. 1967 - Oh NOOOO...Anne Bancroft was only 36 when she made that film! CRUD - makes me feel ....old.

On the otherhand - this outfit smokes!!
