Not really a proper photo...

Sorry about that. 

But I do want to show this because it's one of my favorite shapes to manipulate. Everyone has a different body type and different trouble areas. Everyone also has assets to show off.

This is one of my favorite outfits because it shows off my waist and hides my stomach.



Shirt: Heart to Hips (Old)
Skirt: Gap (Thrifted from Buffalo Exchange for 12.00)



In addition, I found pairing a rather plain t-shit, with simple embellishments, and a skirt to be an incredibly easy way to go and dress business casual (leaning on the casual side). I need more throw-on shirts that look good.

  14. The mustard colour looks great on you and I love the twist in your skirt! That belt looks familiar, did it come with the skirt of from a Guess shirt? LOL Cause if it came with a Guess shirt then we might have the same sweater!

    This is also one of my favorite type of outfits, because it shows the waste. It is so feminine and sexy, yet chic and elegant!

    Sometimes I'm jealous of women's fashion, there's just so much more options for you guys than us guys.

  38. SewPetiteGal - My waist is my no means tiny, but it's a good trick!

    suki pooki - Thanks! I'm quite a fan of the mustard yellow color too! The skirt is actually Gap... I think. And the belt is from Forever.

    Lauren - I really like that shape as well.
