A woman’s dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view Sophia Loren.
This look i love because it made me feel sophisticated liked aged wine… old glam so to speak. It’s definitely a holiday party look/dinner party/wedding rehearsal dinner type outfit. As a curvy girl high waist skirts are your best friend, I have watched some plus size women and some of us might tend to lack outfits that accentuate our waists…hmm….ya’ll know what I mean. So a high waist will define your curves. Please lets not forget https://curvesaluscious.wordpress.com/2011/11/21/the-unmentionables/ . The Oldie outfits that proved to be Goodie is this high waist skirt I scored years ago in New Jersey before high waist trends from the 80’s and 90’s were back in style, glad I hang on to it ;-). The houndstooth sweater I was gifted by my mother years ago as well for a job interview, she bought it at Dressbarn and i have never worn it until today, unfortunately I did not appreciate a houndstooth print sweater right after high school. Sorry mama. Clearly fashion matures with age as well because I am loving it now. I’m sure we have all had the moment where we looked back at old pictures and thought “what was i thinking wearing that?” I’ve had a few of those moments with my Facebook pics. Check the pics out below (click on a pic for a slideshow) 🙂
I paired the skirt and sweater with sequined pumps rom Bakers that definitely sum up the party outfit with some spark and another oldie that proves quality does go along way because this Nine West wristlet is a staple in my day to day activities that has lasted me years.
It doesn’t matter which side of the fence you get off sometimes. What matters most is getting off. You cannot make progress without making decisions. Jim Rohn.
