Thursday, November 20, 2014

Welcome to Fashion Friday!

This week I am sharing layering tips for short waisted women

I found this fun black and white polka dot blouse at H&M and the black Jeweled T-Shirt at Banana outlet. I just loved the jeweled look and no need for a necklace!

As usual the T-shirt is too long on me because of my short waist

If I left it alone I would look like one big rectangle...no curves

So I add a skinny belt...see how the lower half accentuates my hip area? NOT A GOOD LOOK...me no likey the thick rectangle action going on here
Camouflage! I pull the polka dot blouse out from underneath the t-shirt to break up the solid red and black, then I slightly pull both of the shirts up and over the belt for the blouson look. Notice how the blouse goes up on the sides?..it creates an upwards angle to camouflage the thick waist and hip.

I was never good at geometry in school but I feel like I know how to use angles to camoflague the areas of my body to look softer or more feminine.

Next week I will show you a few different looks with just the polka dot blouse!

Fashion Friday- Black and Gold

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Black and Gold is one of my favorite go to color combinations...it just always looks good together. When I found this yummy and so so soft infinity scarf from my friend Brittany's shop The Nest Boutique (that happens to be right in my neighborhood) I knew it would flow so well with my gold and black outfit.

Layering is the key for me to add interest, texture and color. I am wearing a white tank, gold cardigan, black fitted jacket with fun gold buttons and the gold and grey infinity scarf with a black and white striped maxi skirt.
