This is basically my uniform. Here is one of my elastic-waist skirts with a DKNY Cozy. It is not a slimming outfit but I don’t subscribe to dressing to look thinner as the be-all end-all of style. If I wore something that took off 10 lbs would my day suddenly be better? Sometimes I like a skirt that hugs my curves but some days I want to be free. This was one of those days.
This is my Garden Party dress. I get compliments every time I wear it.
My Steinaway dress. It was a gorgeous day and this dress is like a nightgown. So flowy and comfortable. I don’t know why I haven’t made it a second time. Next time I would take it in at the hips and take some width out of the neckline. It is a little gapey.
Here is the uniform again. Elastic-waist skirt and DKNY Cozy. This was on the weekend and included a trip to the library. One of the books I picked up was Overdressed. It is about over-consumerism in fashion in the US. But obviously relates to Canada as well. It is a book I have wanted to read for a while but was scared it was going to change me. And I didn’t know if I was ready. So far so good. I will let you know if I am changed.
Have you read Overdressed? Do you think as a nation (Canada, US) we over-consume? Is sewing our own clothes one of the answers to this problem, if it is a problem?
