Or bloggers rather, that don't wear trousers?

I like to wear skirts or dresses. Every blog I have looked at features lovely slim girls in skinny jeans and a top. There must be someone out there who doesn't wear trousers, or am I the only one?

I've just started blogging and I don't always wear trousers (and am not slim!) - will PM you my blog link for what it's worth. (NB I am not a style icon! )

Rural can you pm me your blog link too? I love looking at blogs. Dollydowser have you looked at the agoraphobic fashionista, she usually has some lovely skirts featured.

Rural Mon 01-Oct-12 09:47:43

Stella - have done :-)

Dollydowser Mon 01-Oct-12 12:21:42

Thankyou Rural, your blog is great. Not sure about the no head photos though, your hair looks lovely in your main pic, I would prefer to see a whole person smile

Stella, thankyou for the recommendation, what a lovely blog. Great clear photos, and not a skinny jean or ballet pump in site grin

There is a theme running, just seen the thread females who don't wear trousers. That's what I'm after, a Nigella/Kirsty type grin

Rural, please PM me your blog too. I wear mostly skirts & dresses. Feel more feminine & disguises big bum & thighs for me.

Rural - could you send me your link too? I read lots of fashion blogs, but yes they all do wear skinny jeans, and while i do on a weekend, week days I'm always in a skirt or dress.

Thanks for reminding me about this great skirt website - I bookmarked it after finding out about it on S&B & now is the time to buy one:

Lovely Skirts

Rural would you please PM your blog too? I don't wear a lot of dresses and skirts, because I never know what to wear with them. thanks thanks

AgathaFusty Mon 01-Oct-12 15:50:23

Rural - another request for your blog please. I love blogs, I do grin

Rural Mon 01-Oct-12 16:02:44

Ach, Dolly I'm too shy to include heads in all the pics, but thank you for your kind comment!

I will PM those of you who asked... please keep your expectations low!

Me too me too!
Pretty please pm me your blog? TIA.

anon80 Mon 01-Oct-12 16:18:56

can you pm me your blog too please x x

Dollydowser Mon 01-Oct-12 16:45:36

Rural, I've seen some bloggers who hold the camera in front of their faces, so some anonymity remains, but it gives a better perspective on the photo and the overall look to the outfit (imo). I still prefer to see a whole person though!

Brickle Mon 01-Oct-12 20:41:12

Rural Thanks for PM with your blog. It's a great blog - be proud of it. Just popping off to Tesco's to look at the shoes!! smile

bigpants103 Mon 01-Oct-12 22:29:55

Can I have blogs names too please rural and wombat?

Dollydowser Mon 01-Oct-12 22:31:31

I don't mind that look Bonny, but it just doesn't suit me, I am not that shape and never would be even if I was a few stone lighter. Legs like 2 fat carrots, to coin a phrase from a MNetter (sorry can't remember who).
