Waisted

Saturday, August 11, 2012 156 0

Dress: Topshop. Sweater: Old Navy. Clutch: Marc by Marc Jacobs. Shoes: Nine West. Necklace: Forever 21. Rings: Kate Spade, H&M. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

The last time I wore a sweater around my waist was probably in the 90’s.  It’s a look I never thought I would wear again.  I snapped these photos in a hurry (to minimize the awkward stares from the many people outside on this beautiful day), so I regretfully forgot to take any side or back view photos.  If I had, you would have seen that this sweater looks as though it was actually made to be worn with this dress this way.  I think you would have agreed that I really had no choice but to relive my teenage years by wearing it around my waist.

    Jenny!! I kid you not, I tied a sweater around my waist yesterday and my husband said “really?” but I took photos anyway. I get in my car and Ace of Base “I saw the sign” starts blaring. Pure 90s music at its best. Meant to be? I think so 🙂 I love this color on you!

    Super cute. That shape of dress looks very flattering on you Jenny, plus love the colour combo, such mood lifters, as worn in my last post as well :-). Love your hair slightly curled, very pretty. Have a wonderful satuday.

    PS: Iam wonderin why you always get up so early at the weekends? My bf would still be sleeping in the USA and its 6 hours back right? 😉

      Oh thank you so much Ani! Ha ha, I schedule my posts in advance but I am actually up pretty early on weekends. I think my body has adjusted to waking up at 5:30am everyday for work so it’s hard for me to sleep in on weekends! 🙂

    Wow. That color blue is amazing. I can’t believe how brilliant it is. I love the dress–The fit and length are very flattering on you. This might be one of my favorite outfits on you.

    PS. I can just picture you saying, “Hurry up and take the picture!” I always feel like a goof standing there waiting for my husband to focus. 🙂

    So cute Jenny! Yeah I haven’t tied anything around my waist in some time. Too bad you didn’t have time to take a pic from the back. You actually look really tall in these and your hair looks spectacular. New cut or color? or just curled? 😉

    wonder if you feel comfortable in these ultra short dresses and skirts you always wear.why don’t you try something a more decent length?

      Thanks so much Amy! I like my hair curly, but I don’t have a proper curling iron, so I have to do it with my flat iron. I usually do a horrible job so I don’t do it this way often. I definitely need to get a curling iron!
