I got this pencil skirt from Pinkyee (fyi mostly lingerie site), which is actually a corset skirt. I never knew these things existed. It isn’t steel boned, so it’s very comfortable to wear. It does tighten and/or loosen a bit, both in the front and in the back, to some extent. I like that the skirt is high waisted, which is really the reason why I got this skirt. The lace I just think of as mostly decoration. The quality is fair, but it is only $26!

I believe I now have two pairs of high waisted skirts that go below the knee and two high waisted pants. I think I want to slowly eliminate my low waist jeans and skirts when I can, because 1) it’s hard not to keep my back and undies from showing when I bend over, 2) high waisted bottoms make anyone look taller, and 3) they’re retro!

High waist anything doesn’t necessarily make you slender, so keep that in mind. It can play up existing curves but also make you look much bigger around the tush! Think of SNL’s “mom jeans.” It really is great for any body type, but it will make the pear shaped body look more pear shaped, which is not what most pears want. Although I am a pear myself, I still like high waist pants and skirts for the reasons I mentioned above.

On another note, have you all seen Ashton Kutcher’s speech at the teen choice award this year? It really took me by surprise. Since it didn’t win Video of the Day on Hannity’s show, I will put it up here. Listen and learn, young readers. Sexiness is about being smart.

    1 Peter 3:3-4
    King James Version (KJV)
    3 Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

    4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.

    It’s pretty clear you don’t have an understanding of actual modesty, according to the Bible and Christian principles. Modesty is not only about covering your skin, but also about the makeup, jewelry, and wardrobe you wear. I don’t know if you meant this, but that outfit is ENTIRELY SEXY. That outfit is sex on a stick. Your skin might be covered, but your modesty is not. Also, the makeup is really not modest at all either. I think that if you’re going to get preachy about modesty and go all Christian on your about page, you should at least get it straight. Modesty is about not showing any sex to the outside world, because it is your heart that matters and that is what God wants most. (But in this case, blogging about fashion would also be immodest.)

    Oh yes, that corset is sure sexy. I think corset really makes you feel sexy probably because it embodies the shape of your figure. And I think Ashton is living the life of Steve Jobs and it changed him in some way and I definitely agree with you, he looks and sounds hot in that video.

    Agreed on high waisted clothing :) it feels so much more comfortable too! This is a bit less practical than some everyday high waisted bottoms but then again, it looks quite va-va-voom :)
