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!!!!!!!!

    HAHA, I love Stacy and Clinton! I also really like "How do I look?"
    You will figure it out, though....I forget that my body could change shapes. I always think I'll just be the same hourglass/pear shape, just....smaller!

    Yup - I need to send us in! Only problem is, I don't want to spend $5K on a wardrobe that will only fit for a few months.
