Lola Skirt

Lola - Filipino word for Grandmother

Last January, I obtained what I call a lola skirt when I was in a post-holiday shopping state. I actually had second thoughts on buying it as I was afraid it might make me look shorter, but once I tried it on, I just couldn't let go of it anymore. I first wore the skirt on the first day of classes on our second semester. Clad in a long conservative skirt, I heard teasing from my friends that I look like a grandma. Also, they kept on giving me gestures for respecting the elder just for fun (like mano po, etc.) Instead of being sensitive about it, I laughed as well and teased myself too because they had a point about my look and it was kinda funny. Some people loved it on me but the funny comments kinda bothered me and got me thinking about the skirt.

I figured that maybe it's not the skirt that had a problem. It was probably me and the way I styled it so I thought of better ways to style it. When a friend of mine insisted on a photoshoot, this look popped into my head and that's when I made my lola skirt look young.
