I need a fashion intervention
Wednesday, November 07, 2007
My body changed shape when I wasn't looking. My hips used to be bigger than my bustline. Bigger than my shoulders. Now the hips are smaller than either my shoulders or my bust. In fact, my bustline is smaller than my shoulders, too! I've walked off pounds and pounds (46, to be exact) - and now I have the thin (ish) thighs to prove it.
I knew how to dress for a pear-shaped figure. I knew to wear darks on the bottom, or dresses with a fitted top and flared skirt. And to always show my legs from the knee down, because I've always, even at my heaviest, had nice legs.
But I don't know what to do with this new figure. I still don't have much of a waist (and never did, I have kind of an athletic build rather than a curvacious hourglass figure) - but I don't know what to do with this inverted triangle. Colors, I'm fine. Line, I'm bordering on clueless.
Stacy and Clinton, I need you!!!!!!!!
