One of the things I did when I started this blog was subscribe to a BOATLOAD of other people’s fashion blogs. I started reading them to get ideas, and in the process discovered that I do, in fact, have something of a personal style.
Still, I like to try new things. So tonight I went to Lane Bryant (mostly to pick up some underwear) and tried a few things on. In the process I confirmed for myself a few things:
- I don’t like the way I look in a pencil skirt. I know other girls love them, even a lot of plus-sized girls do. I’m not one of those. (And the ankle socks aren’t helping *grin*)
- Even a really blousy peplum-style top seems to catch me at just the wrong place. I need to stick with empire waists instead.
- Drape neck tops are touchy; they can be lovely, or they can look like they are pulling across your chest, despite being loose around.
- It’s hard to take a decent picture in a dressing room *shrug*
