Good news: my camera tripod came in this week! No more balancing acts involving the laundry hamper and a box!
Bad news: something's amiss with the camera battery and/or charger, so I don't have enough juice to take photos.
Bad news #2: the point-and-shoot is having the same problems.Sigh.
So, these photos are even blurrier than usual. My apologies.
Anyhow, on to the outfit ...
I am shaped like a Snickers bar (translation: not much of a waist) and short-waisted as well, so I was excited to find Kelly's guide to successful tucking-in for short-waisted petites.
I didn't have a belt to match my top, so I chose one that went with my necklace. The ruffled top + the long sparkly necklace is a little out of my comfort zone. In my pre-style-blog-reading days, it would have seemed like way too much. But after I got used to it I kind of liked it.
I wore this to class with the cardigan open. However, after reviewing Kelly's directions I decided to belt over the cardigan. This cardigan is too slouchy to produce the coveted X-shape via buttoning.
I think this would look better with a different cardigan and belt, but it's not bad for a first try! I'm looking forward to experimenting more with this idea.
