Work Your Curves
What's the best way to flatter curves? Answer is pretty simple to me: high rise pants.
I'm so glad high-waisted everything is back in style. Where would I be without it?
I don't know why, but talk of curve-flattering styles brings up some feelings for me. So I can I get a little real with you for a second? The truth is, I find it hard to dress in a flattering manner for this blog sometimes. Clothes that I love and am dying to wear, or think will look good on me, show up looking completely different in pictures.
A lot of people say that they wish they had my curves. And I'm not dissing them! But it's aggravating that companies are generally not concerned with making clothing for my body type. In fact, most clothes are made with a thinner, straighter-looking wearer in mind. Those bodies are beautiful too, and deserve to look good. All body types deserve to have options. So it is frustrating to "make it work" all the time with clothes that are clearly not made for me.
Just had to share that little rant with you, before I tell you how badass I think I look in this outfit. And it was pieced together with clothing whose makers totally had my body type in mind when they made it. Win!
This is little vintage shirt is one that I don't think I can ever get rid of. I bought it for $3. Solid investment. And the pants... I've worn them before, and I think they speak for themselves.
