Just to let you know that publishing this post proves once again that either I'm an idiot or as my friend says, a narcissist with low self esteem. I'm pretty sure i'm both. You can see what i'm really wearing this fall here.
In the above picture I'm wearing what my cyber-friend slim hopes to never be caught dead in. Mom jeans. I don't like mom jeans either but i looked high and low last year for a jean that Katherine or Marilyn would wear. Sort of a weekend at the cabin look. I found these jeans and the waistline comes to just above my naval and i thought they were perfect. Wrong, turns out they are just mom jeans, and quite unflattering. But I swear in the mirror, they looked good.
Next up is another disaster that I really loved. My chambray shirt and a pair of high-waisted, wide legged jeans. This outfit is so comfortable that i feel like I'm wearing pajamas. And it turns out that it looks like I'm wearing them too. The shirt is far too loose with the jeans and just looks sloppy and not the casual hipster i imagined.
Here are the same pants but with a more form fitting white shirt. In my eyes it still looks awful. At this point, I'm thinking it's the jeans. It couldn't possibly be me!
Because I wear all black at work, this would be something I would wear quite often. I would just take the jacket off when I began working. So these Theory pants and a black t or mock turtleneck for the fall would be a standard outfit. This is not bad with the jacket but look at how awful it is without...
Was anyone ever going to tell me how awful my bustline looks? I am so embarrassed that I've been traipsing around in this outfit for like 2 years now thinking i was looking good. That mirror lies I tell you.
This is not a fashion blunder but as long as I'm here exposing myself, I'd like to get this off my chest. You all know I'm a passionate vegan but you don't know that in my closet is my favorite piece of clothing and it's a vintage cashmere coat with a fur collar. There i said it, phew. And i plan to keep it.
