I really do have greater plans for these shoes than black and white outfits, but honestly, I am a bright color person, so I don't wear B&W all that much. I planned for red pants this morning, and I didn't like the combo so much, but this was easy.
I've realized that on me, I can't wear pants that say "SKINNY" pants because my legs look like wrapped drumsticks, but with a little experimentation, I've discovered that structured pants with a bit of stretch that are marked as "Straight leg" look the way I always want skinnies to look - so perhaps with this new knowledge, I can shop for some skinny jeans in the fall and have better luck. I need some cropped straight legs, because these shoes are begging to be worn with jeans.
Anyways, this is one of my fave jackets because it has a tiny lapel, and one hook that's at the narrow part of my waist. The shirt is pleated and a bit flowy, but has a wide black waist band that stops right above my hips. I think the amount of fluidity and movement is just enough to make me not seem huge up top.
Anyway - I am the worst poser in the history of posing...which sucks since I'm a photographer. I should be better *slinking off to go *Vogue* in the bathroom mirror or something...*
