I use a stat counter to obsessively check how many pageviews I have (what can I say, I’ve got an ego). It also records where the page view came from (ie: what page they were linked from). I was checking my stat counter tonight when I saw that a reader found my blog by searching “Will a houndstooth skirt make me look fat?”
No, mysterious reader in Kentucky, no it will not. Okay, I can’t guarantee that, but go for it. The worst that happens is, you try on the skirt, it does, and then you don’t buy it. Or, you buy it but return it.
In case you don’t have any in mind, I found this after a quick search and thought it was cute.
I’m also a big fan of this dress from Modcloth, although it’s a little pricey.
Or, if you’re really that timid about it, why not try a jacket?
The point, though, is that if you like this skirt enough to run a Google search on whether or not it will make you look fat, you should go for it. Chances are it won’t, and you’ll probably be so happy wearing it that it won’t even matter.
