Dress-Tucker for Target/Jacket-Old Navy/Shoes-OTBT -via Lori's/Jewelry- JCrew,NY street vender, Target
Let me start by saying I love this outfit...very comfy. When I was about to leave this morning, I asked my husband if he liked my outfit...he shrugged his shoulders, scrunched up his nose and said it was not his favorite. Translated into "Brian Speak", which I am fluent in, that is i don't like it, it's not very flattering. I was offended for a fleeting moment, but then it passed. I don't dress for him, I dress for myself. The whole discussion made me think of a post by Jessica from What I Wore pertaining to dressing not always for what is most flattering...
"So instead of posting just “flattering” photos, I’m just posting what this outfit looks like. And while I do believe that wearing clothing to accentuate and highlight your assets is a great method to getting dressed, I still think there’s a place to just wear things that don’t make you look thinner than you are once and a while, even if you are a fashion blogger. "
I might not be a "fashion blogger" per say, but this is the way I feel about today's outfit. I usually try to dress to accentuate my waist and toned legs...things that are fitted, not baggy and take photos that are complimentary to me and my outfit. Today's dress is empire waist and that does not really flatter my waist. It is slightly loose and the jacket not as fitted as I usually wear. Plus, I love wearing my brogues...they remind me of when I was little and I wore them all the time. With skirts it is not the most flattering shoe, no heel to make the leg look longer...but I love them...and this dress...outfit...so I wore it today in all my glory. As I always say...my blog is real...about me!!
I ordered the Other Tucker for Target dress from the GO International Collection that just dropped and I cannot wait for it to arrive...I love those Tucker dresses...cannot you tell!
