As so many of you liked the “Corporate Up” POTV ensemble from Monday’s post, I thought I’d actually wear to the office this week. I think it worked well and here’s the result. I carried my dark olive green Lancel bag, just to throw another color into the mix. Once again I’m feeling the need to apologize for a) the lousy photo quality, and b) mirror shot. (The contortions required to get all of me into this narrow mirror while holding the camera steady don’t make for great photography. I have “buy a tripod!” on my to-do list for the weekend. Yes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.)
I’ll also admit that after seeing this shot, I almost didn’t post it. I mean, those light colored, wide-legged pants aren’t doing me any favors, are they? My mother’s Prime Directive (“you shouldn’t wear that, it makes you look FAT!”) still echoes in my head.
But then I remembered my recent impassioned manifesto that we need to see more images of how clothing looks on women who aren’t 5’11” and 112 lbs, so I’m pouring myself another glass of wine and clicking Publish now.
Edited to add: Are you able to be objective about your own appearance, especially in pictures? If so, were you always or did it take some work?
