Top: Gap and Banana Republic
Cardi: N/A and Gap
Pants: Banana Republic and Aeropostale
Shoes: ? and Blowfish
Belt: Came with the tan jacket I've been mixing and came with a black dress I haven't been mixing
These were my "I'm out of ideas, let's try something new" outfits. 23 made me feel like the female lead in Indiana Jones, which I liked rather a lot. The pants don't have belt loops, so I had to adjust the belt fairly often, but aside from that, it was a great outfit. 24 I attribute to Eliza for two reasons: 1) I think she shared an inspiration pic of someone wearing this sort of cardi belted over a dress in this way and 2) she loves to wear a belt at her natural waistline. I have to say, both outfits compliment my figure much better than I ever thought they would. I have such narrow hips that my thighs look wide and all the low-slung pants I wear make them look even wider. I feel like raising the belt and pant-line make me look miniature, not short and squat. Mental note made!
John and I went shopping the other day and I got a couple new shirts based on what I've learned so far. I was looking for buttoned blouses in particular and didn't find any, but I know to keep looking, so that's exciting! Now I see I need to think about jeans and pants too, perhaps. We have loads more coupons to use this and next month, so I can't wait!
No FO Friday today, but if you want to see others', head over to Tami's Amis. I'll see you tomorrow!
