Heeled Sandals

Hello Hello!! As of lately I have been looking for heeled sandals, I did buy a pair about a month ago but I kind of never stopped looking and never took them out of my wishlist… So I was setting myself up to failure from the beginning but I cannot say that I am actually upset.

Surprise surprise I did order one more pair of heeled sandals and they are amazing.  In the past week since I got them I have been trying to figure out how to wear these every day.  To work on business casual day, to work on casual Friday, bumming around and going out.

The ones on the left and in the middle are my new ones, which are amazingly comfortable given that they are high heeled and very strapy.  The outfit on the left I wore for a business casual day at work.  These are not the typical work shoes and I had hesitations about wearing them.  But it was going to be a stressful day and I needed a pick me up.  the ones in the middle I wore on casual Friday, it was a little bit busier of a day and these shoes made it all day and I was ready to wear them out at night.  The outfit on the right, I wore out bumming with a friend and seeing a movie.

New shoes new shores, I am in love with these shoes.  I debated about buying them for a very long time, I saw a woman wearing them out at the bar and had a long talk with her about them.  We agreed they were great shoes and looked amazing.  I wanted to know how comfy they were, she said they were ok.  We disagree on this point because now that I own them I know they are so comfortable.  And maybe everyone should take that with a grain of salt because I am very good in heels and can typically wear a good pair all night.

I would recommend these shoes to anyone, they do cost a little bit more then I typically spend on shoes but these went on sale and Amazon sent me a 20% off code.  So it was like they were begging me to buy them.

My Bootie Problem

Hello hello!!  I fully acknowledge my boots and bootie problem, I love them and I do not seem to be able to stop myself from buying them.  I tend to find a pair that I like, think about it for a bit and then buy them anyways. haha

This has happened on the last 2 pairs of boots that I purchased, and somehow I stumbled upon another pair that I really liked.  They are also by the same designer that I got my  pair of over the knee boots that I love.  I was doing really good convincing myself I didn’t need them, then they went on sale… These booties

How to create the illusion of a smaller waist

Hello hello!! Yes I know the first question, do you have to do this aren’t you already skinny?  So yes I am skinny but I am not curvy, my waist does not really curve in much.  If I wear a traditional bodycon dress, from the front I look like I don’t have a shape, where as from the side you can see I have curves.  (Pics below, I dug out my last bodycon dress and I tried it on for you).  So this is due to the fact that I do not have a large chest and I have small hips, so my waist curves in but not by a lot.

So this is a dress that is probably going to be given away the next time I clean out my closet.  The pic on the left is not as flattering as a typically bodycon dress.  But from the side you can see that I do have curves.  This dress was one I bought in college when all I really wanted was short and tight. Now that I am a little older I dress to highlight my figure better.

In order to make my waist stand out and appear smaller in dresses or skirts, I do one of two things.

  • I wear a top that is tight on top and on the bottom look for a skirt that flares out from the body at least a little bit.
  • Or I wear a skirt that is tight and pair it with a shirt that is loose.

I picked this dress to use for this because it is similar to the other one in color and shape.  I like this one a lot more then the other one because it flatters my figure better.  This dress fits into the first category, it has a tight top and even though the bottom appears tight in the pic on the right you see it is only tight right at the waist.  The dress highlights my waist because the top of the dress appears to float and the skirt portion is tight at the waist creating a very flattering silhouette.

These outfits fit into the second category- tight skirt paired with a loose top.  This is typically an outfit I wear to work using my pencil skirts for the bottom.  These are both examples I wore last week, these skirts are staples in my work wardrobe.  On top I usually use a sheer top with a cami underneath, I own a good variety of these tops to be worn with my pencil skirts.  The silhouette is created by the skirt with is doing all the work, the loose top being tucked into the skirt highlights the waist.

Here are a few more examples-
