I’ve always preferred a fitted waist, to work with broad shoulders and a long torso, but I may be ready now to trade that off for comfort. Breathe an actual sigh of relief; I’ve been sucking in my stomach for a decade now.
This will require some experimentation.
So, last week my middle sister, my brother and I exchanged presents, as our birthdays fall in August, October and September respectively. I asked my sister for a top that would be kind to my middle.
I wore it to the i2 conference, with pieces I already owned. Distressed narrow (but not quite skinny) white jeans (to balance the top’s volume), patent leather loafers, and progressive lenses so I could see to walk the city hills. Realities.
The deep vee of the tee addresses some of my concerns about volume. Of course, it makes me worry in turn about decolletage, but let’s make that sigh of relief global.
Pretty easy to layer under a biker jacket. As one does.
When trying out something new, I like to keep the rest of my outfit as minimal as possible. I figured that with black, white and transparent as a background, to say nothing of denim and flats, I could focus on silhouette. The outfit had just enough texture, what with biker ribbing and frayed knees. The shine of patent leather balanced glints from the earrings.
The shirt’s hem is lower in back. All kinds of experiments going on. As an aside, I know we call Paris the City of Light, but San Francisco gives her a run for the money, on a summer morning as the marine layer recedes.
I’d thought to recreate this photo but, I’d left my iPhone in my back pocket, Big flat rectangle seat alert. We’ll crop that right out, shall we, and do a detail shot of the biker ribbing instead? I like the way San Francisco gave me a red light accent, like an imaginary earring. Gifts from sisters and the universe, useful in change of any sort.
I might also try high-waisted pants, tackling the issue from another perspective, as it were. Small steps.
