a post on DressADay for this statement about a featured skirt:
But the first person to mention that a horizontal seam at the hips may, possibly, conceivably, make you look slightly wider gets a resounding Bronx cheer in the comments. C'mon, live a little! You can't always worry about the width of your hips, sometimes you have to worry about where to put your wallet & cell phone! Or about why everyone under 30 seems to only wear a short tight skirt, a big floppy blouse, and four-inch nude-colored platform pumps! Worrying about looking wider fell off my worry-about list some time ago. (But zombies are still on my list. Oh, yes, those pesky zombies ...)
Erin expressed what I so often feel, that we (understandably) prioritize figure flattery over (unfortunately) enjoying styles that express our personalities in important ways. And finally, today, I've got around to a post of my own that seems to call out for her wisdom.
I loved these fine-wool, high-waisted, wide-legged pants (by Clemente, a European line) as soon as I spotted them. They're not terribly practical -- I'm going to have to clip them carefully before biking, so they don't get caught up in the chainguard.
Visible Monday is all about is expanding notions of What to Wear beyond simply those designed to make us look younger, slimmer, taller (not that I've abandoned the quest for that trifecta). Go check out my fellow participants and see if you agree.
