I was really hesitant to even post these, because I do think I missed the mark on this one. A little too tight, a little too short. Body-con is right! I felt so self-conscious that after seeing the photos, I took a trip upstairs to change into a more suitable outfit. I got a couple of immature remarks, which didn’t help. But a big thank you to the kind lady who said I was “pretty as hell” – that made me smile:)
I bought this skirt at a thrift store (it was only $1!) and I figured I would give it a go. I’m trying to be more comfortable with my body and let go of the silly hangups I have. I just don’t know if this was the proper route…maybe I should take baby steps? I’m the kind of girl who won’t even wear a bikini to the beach, for crying out loud. Yet here I am pretending I’m Kelly Bundy, when I’m clearly more of a Kelly Kapowski*.

*In my dreams.
Outfit Details:
shirt – H&M
skirt – thrifted
shoes – dots
bandaids – hello kitty, courtesy of these shoes (I’ve broken them in since then)
lipstick – MAC Pink Poodle
Love love,
Keiko Lynn

    you're gorgeous! don't let any immature remarks make you think otherwise. and i really adore your outfit.

  2. Jenna says: May 8, 20101:05 am

    I agree with the lady on the street, you are rocking that skirt! I also really admire your move to be more comfortable in your own skin, we should all do more of that.

  3. jenny says: May 8, 20101:05 am

    Ow ow! Love the outfit. :)

  4. Verhext says: May 8, 20101:06 am

    Ummm, basically you look PERFECT?

    It's hard to wear things like this, there's just too much culturally and socially wrapped up in the icon of a tiny black mini – yes, Kelly Bundy, etc.

  5. tina says: May 8, 20101:08 am

    The lady's right; you are pretty as hell! Smokin' is more like it : D That skirt looks like it was made for you.

  10. Liv says: May 8, 20101:16 am

    Wow. I'm with that lady on the street too.

    I definitely get where you're coming from though and agree with Verhext's comment. I've finally let most my hang-ups go (by the time I hit 30 it was pretty much it's now or never!) but my progress definitely gets derailed now and then.

    And I gotta say you are absolutely stunning.

  14. bloody says: May 8, 20101:31 am

    girl, you're trippin. you look amazing, you have no reason to be self conscious in this outfit. you are young, have a great figure, and really are "pretty as hell", so enjoy it because when you look back at these photos when you're older, you're gonna wonder why you didn't wear stuff like this more often!
    if i had legs like yours i'd wear skirts like that all the time! hell, i DON'T have legs like yours and i wear skirts like that all the time, hahaha.

  15. Elissa says: May 8, 20101:39 am

    Well, at least you have a smokin hot bod, and I say that with all due respect. That said, Being hot doesn't necessarily mean that you "owe" it to somebody to showcase it in a way that makes you uncomfortable! It's only fun if you're having fun.

  16. EVA says: May 8, 20101:40 am

    woohoo! yowza

  17. lpkitten says: May 8, 20101:40 am

    ummm, i concur. you look awesome. but i can also see why you might be uncomfortable because i can only imagine how many more unwanted comments you would get wearing that out. probably better wearing it for your boyfriend later! than again, i could just be a prude!

  18. Nora Southall says: May 8, 20101:42 am

    I LOVE THIS OUTFIT, you shouldn't have changed this looks AWESOME. however I do get what you mean, that looks like one of those american-apparely skirts where you take a step and a skirt that was a good length is suddenly up around your waist

  19. Anonymous says: May 8, 20101:47 am

    Your figure is definitely to drop dead for gorgeous, so whether it's too tight or just not suitable I know no such thing. Seriously, you are flawless. Don't let anyone tell you any different! I promise. <3

  20. L. says: May 8, 20101:48 am

    damn girl, look at those stems! you do look "pretty as hell" but I can see what you mean by bein' a little self conscious in this one (even though you have no reason to be). it's a very different look for you, and even though it is very body-con, it's still classy with the drapey top and your hair pulled up.

    you look gorgeous tho, maybe more appropriate for a night out than a day running around. kudos for stepping outside your safety zone though!

    with love,
    Betty Noir

  21. ittybittykitty says: May 8, 20101:49 am

    You look awesome but I can relate about the hangups. Even at my thinnest there are things I never wore because I thought I couldn't pull it off. I look back I always think "I should of worn it!" (white vintage capris in 96 when I was 17 come to mind). Rock it girl!

  22. kelly ann says: May 8, 20101:49 am

    i can see why you would be uncomfortable, and i totally understand what you're saying… because i'm the same way about my body. BUT… you look absolutely incredible! you are gorgeous, dear, and holy hell your legs look amazing! 😉

    You're undoubtedly stunning from head to toe in this outfit Keiko! I'm surprised you only received one compliment! i agree with that kind lady, you are pretty as hell and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise :)

  30. LuTaNiA says: May 8, 20102:18 am

    At least you look nice from the side. 😉

  31. boatx2 says: May 8, 20102:21 am

    (Laughs) Oh, Keiko!

    You even look self-conscious in these photos! That's the most self-aware I think we've ever seen you.

    I think you offset the outfit correctly, however. Loose on the top, tight on the bottom. Maybe try that skirt with something blue and royal?? Thanks for being brave.

  32. sincerelyangela says: May 8, 20102:25 am

    you are absolutely gorgeous keiko.
    you have a body that any girl would kill to have! just stunning!

    oh keiko…you look fabulous!

  38. Shannon Lambert says: May 8, 20102:54 am

    I think one size bigger and two inches longer would be better. Not to say that this isn't beautiful, but I can see what you mean. The seams are puckering on the skirt a little and I think a size up would solve that plus you'd feel comfortable in public and sexy. I like the idea of a chunky bangle or bracelet with this outfit.

  39. Jolie says: May 8, 20103:06 am

    I think we all have these crazy idea of how we look and are perceived. You my darling are stunning and have an amazing figure. Show it off now while you're young and stylish!
    Love your makeup, especially pink poodle, one of my faves!

  40. Jenni says: May 8, 20103:26 am

    I will echo the sentiments of your other commenters in saying you have nothing at all to worry about. You're basically the best looking person alive, and you're rocking the hell out of the skirt. It looks amazing with the top. However, I understand where you're coming from. When you're not used to wearing something, it doesn't matter how good you look in it. Maybe when it gets cold again you could try it out with some tights. 😀

  41. Ebony says: May 8, 20103:40 am

    You look fabulous!!!
    I love this outfit, so neutral so it makes your lips pop. Your skin tone looks so good with that 'shade of nude' and I love that you are showing off your amazing figure.

    Honestly, fuck people with comments like that. You are one of THE prettiest WOMEN I know. This is perfect.

  42. kittycat says: May 8, 20103:42 am

    I think you look fabulous in these shots! Body con is hard to pull off, but you totally can do it! Looking stunning!

  49. treeathie says: May 8, 20104:27 am

    I agree that it's a bit too short and tight, but not because you don't have the body for it. The side shot is pretty hot!

  50. Kate Rose says: May 8, 20104:34 am

    pretty, simple, sleek
    ooh, it would look so cool with dark retro makeup.
    It's a different look, but I like :)
    The skirt is short, but the proportions look so RIGHT

  51. revital says: May 8, 20104:39 am

    wow! what a great outfit! you look hotttt!
    I really liked the side shot, the skirt is just wonderful!! (:

  52. Charmalade says: May 8, 20104:44 am

    Poor Keiko; I personally think you're pretty as hell AND heaven and everywhere in between, but if you're not confident in it, then that's not cool.

    But you know what IS really cool? That you'd say that you're a Kelly Kapowski. And oh, I also don't wear bikinis. Covered midriffs– unite? x)

    I wouldn't feel worried at all! And immature remarks are stupid and silly, you always get some douche bag who says something like that..

    PLUS! I actually love the nude colours together! If I could, I'd totally try that outfit :)

  56. Sharon says: May 8, 20106:53 am

    I'm with the lady on the street and all the other people here – you look fabulous and you shouldn't worry about anything! (:

    But I know what you're talking about. I'm also trying to be more comfortable with my body and tried to wear some nice tight, short, sexy clothing so many times. But then again I feel not confident enough to really wear it and change in the end…

    Anyways, you we're very brave and this encourages me to be as well! Thank you!

    Don't know if I would have gone with shoes that high, but there's nothing wrong with your outfit!
    It seems comfortable and casual. You're young, go ahead and be sexy and enjoy your body. Dudes are always going to be immature creeps no matter what you wear, seriously!
    I think you are one of the prettiest girls on the blog circuit, you have a unique style and look, and you are always yourself. But everyone needs to take their time to find a way to be comfortable with what they see in the mirror and how they feel in their own skin. I'm glad you're getting there!

  88. OmgLia says: May 8, 20109:20 pm

    i think it looks cute, though it may have worked better (and been less uncomfortable) with a large belt at the top of the skirt, or with the shirt untucked over top of the skirt.

  89. malori says: May 8, 20109:39 pm

    I think that skirt looks amazing on you! You've got a great figure for pieces like this – and it looks just right not immodest or too tight at all. I know exactly what you mean about "hangups" though – we've all got ours (i'm terrified of showing even the littlest bit of cleavage). As for immature comments – jackasses are jackasses – i always see it as a backhanded compliment.

    Thanks everyone, for all of the supportive comments!

    Shannon – I agree, a little longer and a little bigger would have been better. Maybe I'll try again when I find a proper fitting skirt!

    To those who asked about Bobby: I was in Florida for about a month and a half, which is why he hasn't been on here. And why Kim hasn't been on here, either (she is bothered by that). I'll make sure to post more pictures.

    I have trouble wearing body con clothes, but with age I seem to get more comfortable. You look great! Kelly Kapowski, for sure.

    Giiiirl! Your body is bangin'! The loose top balances out the tight skirt and I think this look is perfection. I hear you though, sometimes I feel uncomfortable in things too tight, but it looks so good on you!

    i would take your body any time!
    you can be nothing but proud of it, you look stunning!

  114. Lianna J says: May 10, 20102:32 am

    you look amazing. i love your skirt!

  115. Sarah says: May 10, 20103:03 am

    You look absolutely stunning!! I agree that the loose top balances very well with the skirt! But I totally understand about the body hang ups! I know we all have those. But I say wear what makes you feel beautiful, and who cares what anyone else thinks! You rock! :)

    I would pay an OBSCENE amount of money to have a body like yours Keiko! And if you've got it…flaunt it!!! :-)

    you really are pretty as hell 😀

    love your style & blog

    All I have to say, is "HOT"!!!!!!

    So tight is so right… esp for you, Keiko! 😉

    I agree, you are pretty as hell but I totally understand how it sometimes feels strange to put on a certain outfit that you're not used to or might not be comfortable in and have to walk around the whole day in it. What if you tried something like this outfit with flats or sandals instead first so the height and leg length doesn't feel so aggressive? Then move onto the heels once you feel 100% about it!

    wow!!!! this is so simple and yet gorgeous!!!! i love the contrast of the loose top and tight skirt!!! plus your heels are totally to die for! 😀

    Hey keiko,

    My labtop has been in the repair shop for a while and haven't been able to check on your blog.Today I finally checked in, I do have to say you lost a heck of a lot of weight! But to me you always look great! (okay i promise i didn't intend for that to rhyme)

  122. Ash says: May 10, 20106:33 pm

    Your face is beautiful and you have a bangin' body. I know how it feels to have the weight of being self-conscious on your shoulders. But please don't, you are a gorgeous girl with great style.

  123. Ruxandra says: May 11, 20106:19 am

    Hello Keiko!
    First of all, i wanted to tell you that your blog, i mean, you are so inspiring.Now, about this outfit…i think that lady was right!You look amazing, yet different from the style i'm used to seeing on your blog.Nevertheless, you should try making those baby steps…as i will try doing mine when it comes to personal style rather than blending in the crowd.
    Have a llovely week!

  124. Gela says: May 11, 201010:28 am

    you're sexy & beautiful & very classy, & whoever says otherwise is probably just crazy jealous!

    You really look beautiful here!
    You shouldn't bother about what other people say as long as you feel good in your clothes!
    But I do understand the feeling of not being comfortable in the clothes I'm wearing (especially when wearing short skirts/dresses)! 😉
    But really – you shouldn't worry at all because you look stunning! And you should definitely give it a go again! :)

  126. vintagerubbish says: May 11, 20108:19 pm

    GIRLLLLLLLLL you look like a KNOCKOUT!!!!! your BF must be going crazy with you looking like such a pinup girl hottie! werk it!!!

  127. origami says: May 11, 20108:40 pm

    You definitely look gorgeous! And yes, the skirt is uber-tight. But you paired it with such demure shoes and that lovely floaty top that it really works.

    Given how you were uncomfortable in this outfit you might perhaps try baby steps as you thought and slowly work your way up to a skirt like this!

  128. Anonymous says: May 12, 20105:31 pm

    I agree with the lady! You have a perfect body and I'm pretty sure you can wear anything you like :)

  129. Kelly says: May 12, 20107:25 pm

    This looks great on you!!

  130. Melissa says: May 12, 201011:11 pm

    I have to say upon first seeing these pictures I was a little shocked because I'm so used to you wearing such homely but lovely clothing..but you look amazing! It's funny cause so many other girls wear that type of outfit all the time and I don't see it as .. scandalous, or whatever haha.. but with you, like I said, it's out of the ordinary. Nevertheless, you look incredible! And it's nice to change it up sometimes :)

  131. Marie McGrath (The Joy of Fashion) says: May 13, 20101:26 am

    I know how you feel. I usually feel really self conscious in tight clothes as well. That's actually the reason why I never wear pants, because I rather have skirts and dresses that float away from my body! lol

    isn't it crazy how we can never really see ourselves as others do. i don't see a single flaw on you, and i think the outfit is just adorable! with that said i'm sure you have trouble seeing yourself that way. we've been trained to see the negatives and it's tough tough work to let that go!

  133. home made girl. says: May 13, 20102:55 pm

    two things: you look incredible and i need that lipstick

  134. Ario Achda says: May 13, 20103:08 pm

    u and ur great shape!!!

    y would shy??? this is gorgeous!

  135. soychild. says: May 14, 20103:00 am

    that outfit looks spectacular on you!!!

    do you exercise or work out, or anything?!

    i would love to know, so I can motivate myself to pull a skirt like that off!

  136. Bibi King says: May 14, 20104:45 pm

    i really love those picture. it looks so clean. i don´t think you look nacked. more like "less is more". gorgeous!

  137. The Jilted Lovers says: May 14, 20109:09 pm

    you look hot!! and you got some booty! :)

  138. Chrissi says: May 17, 20104:49 am

    You are honestly almost so pretty that it makes me mad. Hence the immature remarks, I guess.

    Seriously, though you are that totally crazy mix of fabulous and adorable. Amazing!

  139. Bright Smile says: May 17, 20105:31 pm

    You look stunning. Just stunning! You're makeup and shoes keep the outfit pretty, and not slutty. If you get up the nerve, wear it out!

  140. hk says: May 20, 201012:13 am

    it works! (and obviously i'm not the only one who thinks so.) i don't always love every little thing you wear but you always look just a drop-dead gorgeous little tornado of sweetness and light. so there.

    Sorry this is a bit late! I know how you feel. Often I'm not so confident about what I'm wearing and how it looks on my body,etc. I wish I didn't do that! And you certainly shouldn't! Great for you, I'm glad you're working on it! Because this outfit is absolutley GORGEOUS, and you hardly look scandalous. Being comfortable's overrated.

  145. amber xiong says: December 11, 20103:59 am

    I LOVE your outfit! It's totally something I would wear. As long as you're wearing it with class, who cares what anyone thinks, and you do look hella good in it. take care.
