Convention style wisdom tells us that we should always emphasize our waistline for the most figure-flattering look…but sometimes, I just don’t want to do what I’m told!! (And I’m not the only one, I’m sure!!)
Admittedly, it’s a tad more challenging to create a “linear” fashion statement when you don’t have a model’s height and silhouette; but I think this denim shirtdress falls just straight enough – and the hem is just short enough – to give me that slightly boxy look I was after without being overwhelming.
Some extra height in the footwear department helps, too…and I have to say, these Reaction Kenneth Cole peep-toe wedges have been the perfect “training wheels” for once again making me feel confident and comfortable with wearing a pair of heels.
Good thing I invested in them!! My latest ultrasound – which I had last week – indicates that my DVT has actually improved (yay!) but I’ve been cautioned once again by my doctor that the various symptoms I’m dealing with could still be an issue for months…or even years.
That’s a looong time to wait and see if so many of my other shoes will ever fit again!! I haven’t decided yet if replacing them is the way to go; but I guess the worst-case scenario is a whole lot of shoe shopping in my future, right?!
