Sometimes a girl just wants to wear a loose shirt.  Sometimes a girl doesn’t want to walk around all day sucking in her stomach.  Sometimes a girl wants to eat a delicious, big dinner without looking like she’s pregnant afterwards in her fitted top.  But this girl has a hard time finding non-fitted clothing that doesn’t make her look huge because this girl is short and curvy.  Enter this girl’s hero shirt . . . the Saint James for Coach drawstring top.  This girl has finally found that perfect, cute-yet-casual, eat-all-you-want, wear-when-you’re-feeling-not-skinny, fitted-but-not-fitted shirt.


P.S. I’ve linked up with Jane from Toronto Shopoholic for her #waywewear series.  This month it’s all about print mixing!

As a child, I use to LOVE the Smurfs!  I watched that cartoon all of the time, and Smurfette was obviously my favourite.  I had nearly the entire collection of little collectible figurines (that I’m now kicking myself for not keeping), and would have so much fun playing with with my little brother.  So, you can understand why my reaction to Justin calling me a Smurf in this outfit would be both positive and negative.  He so gently stated that my blue socks made it appear like I had blue skin and therefore looked like I should be strolling through the Smurf Village instead of heading to the office.  I would have been much more annoyed than I was if I could have just stopped myself from laughing so much.  For the record, I liked this outfit, and not one other person at work that day called me a Smurf. I know this look isn’t for everyone but fashion is about having fun and taking risks, so that’s exactly what I did while staying true to my own style.

I haven’t worn glittery nail polish in years, but my heart melted when I saw this beautiful rosey-pink shade from Butter.  Glitter nail polish is just so fun to wear, but I quickly remembered how not fun it is to remove.  Wow, that stuff really sticks to your nails!  Two days later, I still had traces of glitter on my hands.  But I’d happily go through that hassle every time just to feel as girly and pretty as I did when wearing this nail polish.
