Alaskagirl's 5 silhouette challenge has been the BEST thing so far this winter for my fashion life! Thank you, Una!!
This week I really enjoyed myself; it helps that I am feeling better overall, I guess. Plus I had a few new items to play with, thanks to the Black Friday Zara sale. ;)
Day 1: Slouchy skinnies (Gap Original Fit selvedge, taken from DD's donate pile), fluid pullover. Easy peasy for work-at-home.
Day 2: Appointment at school. Wide legs (Theory Emory), cropped sweater (it is navy, BTW, not black), and gingham tux shirt. I liked the proportions here! Score! Also wore my new Danier coat, already a workhorse.
Day 3: The new Zara skirt, which cost me all of $13. Vince Camuto quality it is not...this is a real tube cut totally straight -- no WAY I am wearing it without a long top, especially considering what a month of enforced bed rest has done to my tummy. I am starting to have apple tendencies!! But the colours are fun, fun, fun, and I'm going to love having this in the closet. DH and stepdaughter loved it.
Day 4: BF jeans and plaid shirt. Claire, I confess -- I'm a lemming!! My pockets are arguably far more problematic than the ones on Claire's shirt, but being so flat chested it doesn't really bother me to draw attention to that spot; it feels like a bit of whimsy, actually. And the soft white is super flattering. Wearing this with a fitted cashmere hoodie for another silhouette switcheroo.
Day 5: Sparkly sweater dressed down -- for an at home date night with Mr. Suz, finishing season 3 of Borgen, best TV show ever!
Thanks for looking and suggestions welcome.
