#OOTD: How to Style A Pink #Pencilskirt?!

Rhianna's Studio Pink Midi Pencil Skirt
Hello Everyone! I hope you are doing well! I am taking a break from all the work I have to do. So I thought I would share with you something I've recently made. When I am stressed or feeling overwhelmed I work on a quick sewing project to alleviate the stress. 

This time I actually attempted a challenge I gave myself. The challenge was to make a skirt before class and wear  it to class. I've had this outfit in my mind for a while and I finally was able to put my hot pink fabric I ordered from Girl Charlee last year to use! 
As I always say, a pencil skirt is the best compliment to a woman's curves. This is my favorite skirt to make and to wear. So you will see more and more of these from me. I've got an idea of one brewing in my head now :-) I think blogger, Karla DeRass of Karla's Closet, does a great job styling her pencil skirts and they look really cute on her. They definitely compliment her curves. She is perfect example of curves come in all sizes. Below are the some selfies of me in the skirt paired with my Michael Jackson tee that I made (sewed the shirt and added the iron on) The pattern for the t-shirt was hand drafted using measurements (not a store bought tee).

I've noticed some women wearing shoes without the platform front, when walking have their toes hanging over the front of their shoes. Do you have any suggestions to correct this issue?

LOL! Yes, I've seen this too. Shoe stores and possibly the shoe sections of Wal-Mart and Target carry insoles that can help with that if the issue is that their feet are sliding forward as they walk which makes their toes hang over their shoes. Otherwise the show may not be the correct size. I generally go up a 1/2 size for sandals just because the way they are cut. They often narrow near the toe area and that can cause some hang over especially with the pinky toe :-) I hoe this helps.
