Here’s my observation (and I’m sure I’m not alone) about personal style…”fashionable” and “flattering” might not always be one and the same!!
For example, the resurgence in popularity of high-waisted jeans: I don’t care what anyone else says; in my opinion, they do not create the illusion of longer legs, just a bigger bum…which may or may not be a good thing!! 🙂
That being said, I think all of us sometimes want to look picture-perfect (with our perceived figure flaws nicely camouflaged) while at other times, we just want to have fun with our style and say to heck! with all those supposed rules about proportion and fit and colour!!
I am not tall, nor do I have anything close to a model’s legs…so wearing this sort of midi skirt is probably not the most flattering option for me. But today I wasn’t thinking about that; it was simply the look that I was in the mood for!! And my star-spangled sweater and new wedge booties (yep, here they are again!) make up for a multitude of sins, don’t you think??
