Red shoes, No knickers



October 2011



Rolling, rolling, rolling…

{m&s shirt, vintage sequinned belt and pants, hobbs wedges}

Knowing your good points is all part of dressing well. Whether you’ve got a cracking pair of legs, a high tight ass or a fabulous rack, drawing attention to those samokin parts of your body is what will draw our eye away from where you don’t want us to look. 

My best feature is my waist.  It’s always in…GET IT IN!! {see here, here and here} and more often than not I will tuck all my t-shirts, blouses and shirts into my skirts and pants. {american style pants not my nix…}

Sometimes though, a simple tucking in just doesn’t work and I need to think of other ways to way my clothes.  I wasn’t feeling my best when getting ready for the work the other morning.  However I needed to have an outfit that looked good enough for work but was also comfortable enough to keep me going for the next 12 hours….

 {look at my tiny hand!}

This shirt is a men’s one from M&S that my old flatmate bought for fancy dress at her work….Mary Poppins theme, I think she went as a chimney sweep! I thought about customising it for such a long time – taking it in, chopping it up – but am so glad that I kept it as is as it’s made it so versatile.  Cinching the shirt in with a sequinned belt, showing that decollatage and rolling up the sleeves makes all the difference….

Rolling the bottom of my pants up too shows off other small parts of my body – ankles and wrists.  A small trick but it works my darlings, for the majority of us…get rolling and see the difference.

Adding a heel, tops the look off….

A comfortable oufit that still looks stylish…With the leopard print wedges and my colour blocking khaki clothing I felt like a dressed up safari guide in Africa…that and I called myself Indianna Donovan….
