Style-challenged

The day after my last post, I mistakenly thought it was going to be a similarly nice day (ha! Boy, was I fooled...) so I wore a summery green empire-line t-shirt to work. Just for some minimal cover, I added a long-sleeved teal cropped cardy - you know, the kind that ties just under the bust. So I was walking to the office, mentally congratulating myself for mixing my colours for a change, when I caught a glimpse of my reflection in the shop window. My first impression was - Cheryl West *. And my next one was - looking pregnant.

I guess reading all those fashion magazines hasn't helped me after all.


* She looks good for her age but dresses a bit slutty. She is a Westie, after all.

That's always a problem with empire waisted shirts and dressed unless you are built like a stick. I think they're adorable, but then I try them on or worse, buy without trying them on.

Not exactly a wardrobe malfunction, more of a wardrobe mishap.

aprilbapryll: the t-shirt would've looked fine without the little cardy. But the cardy just kinda sent it over the line...

nigel: or, maybe it's just a consequence of getting dressed in the semi-dark.
