throwing shapes


Running short on time this morning I threw on the most basic of outfits, inspired simply by shape and the silky texture of the shirt. To counter the streamlined effect of the black skinny legs with my new Aldo heels (on sale for 50 bucks - SCORE!), I tucked the shirt at the front to create a "nice" tent effect. I'm sure Trinny and Susanah would massively dissaprove. But at least the bottom half is slimming. Wearing pants just makes me feel so... competent.

    Either everyone at your work said "wow, heather, you look so competent!!" or "...um, this is not what we hired you for...."
    Haha ;-) xx

  19. No no no! Tucking in the shirt at the front but not the back is totally IT - and looks GREAT on you! (I've stocked up on silk shirts, too).
