It's a couple of weeks since I took these photos of my new vest in action. Then today Karen, Of a Certain Age, posted about pulling menswear looks into real life, and I thought it was time for me to chime in.
Except for a bracelet, a simple large-link silver chain, and silver ball earrings, I didn't do much to feminize the outfit, but I enjoyed the slouchy polish I felt I achieved (and I know, combining slouch and polish might seem oxymoronic, but I was convinced, at least!). Funnily enough, of all the shoes I wore during the first two weeks of school, these low Converse were the ones that drew the compliments.
I could easily understand if Imogen or Karen or another Image Consultant pops in and suggests the proportions here aren't the best for me, but once again I want to say that I sometimes want to dress from the inside out, to express myself without always thinking about what makes me look taller and thinner and longer-waisted, etc. While I value learning how to best flatter my features and minimize my "flaws," sometimes this girl just wants to have fun!
