High waisted skirt

High waisted skirt, a photo by mllegemaricaine on Flickr.

I feel very vain today. I wore a high-waisted skirt with a shirt tucked in and a cropped sheer cardigan. I knew heels would look better, but I wore flats for comfort. I don't generally think of myself as curvy, but today I feel very curvy. I tend to just see myself as a little overweight since I carry most of my weight in my stomach and face, rather than on my hips or in my chest. My hips are about the same as my waist, but I notice that messing with the proportions of outfits can make it look like I have more curves instead of a pot belly. I like it.

In other vain unimportant news, I finally got an appointment for my hair the day of the wedding (in 9 days!). I want to do something retro but definitely an updo. I ran it by Tara (the bride) and she gave me the go-ahead to do my hair any way I want. There are four bridesmaids and I am the shortest one. I thought I was the fattest but I think I'm about the same size as one and then the other two are skinny minnies and so I've been a little worried about looking squat in the photos. I shouldn't compare myself to them anyway, but of course I do.

I like the outfit, and the one you posted from your interview day too. It IS fun to play with proportions, textures, different looks.

I got some great online shopping finds while I was home recovering from surgery and have fallen in love with making real outfits (top/bottom/finishing piece/accessories). I realized, hey, I have beer and wine notes, why don't I have fashion notes? So I started jotting down things I wore that worked really well together and ideas for other combinations. It's been a great way to "shop in my own closet", and when I feel I have nothing to wear I have pages and pages of options proving otherwise.
