* I am rather sick of the empire waistline. When it began, I was all hurrah! and ooh, look how pretty! but weeks and months of wearing what looks a little like maternity wear is getting to me. How can you not look preggers in something that cinches right underneath your boobs and then billows outward? Even if you have the most beautiful toned stomach (which I don't), you're still going to look vaguely full. I tried to mix it up the other day, you know, look for things that had a straight cut as opposed to the sash-and-billow, but nyet. No go. So I have these masses of dresses which I will be able to, in all likelihood wear for every aspect of my life.
* I am also giving up on the Skinny Jeans phenomenon. I've tried them on over and over again and I cannot for the life of me figure out who these jeans are supposed to be flattering. I have extraordinarily skinny legs and an ass that is almost non-existant. These jeans skinnify my legs even more BUT push my ass out so I look.. well.. really weird. Pair that with an empire waist top and you know I've got some serious body issues.
Something I do like though is boy shorts, which, wouldn't you know it, is underwear. So much more comfortable than a thong, make my ass look VISIBLE (seriously!) and are kinda cool in a hipster sorta way. They're also good to wear under dresses when you don't want your pantyline to show and come in all sorts of awesome patterns. My two favourites right now are ones with cassettes on it with "Feel the beat" on the waistband and similiar ones with zebra faces on it and "Drive Me Wild". LOVE them. I wish they were outerwear too.
I think the reason I'm edging away from your sashes and skinnyfication is also coz I'm so bored with my closet right now. Oh, I have lots of awesome clothes, but here's the thing about me--I dislike accessorising with belts and tights and what-not and I'm always looking for something which no one else will be wearing. This leads me to buy prints that are a little away from the ordinary like an awesome skull print tube dress I love or an ikkat dress with tie up straps and a pocket at the rear. So, the dress featured in the picture above is NOT something I have in my wardrobe. I do have one similar to it, only mine has stars all over it and a poufy balloon skirt. My, I love the balloon skirt. Also pockets. I don't know why pockets on dresses fascinate me so much but you could pretty much slap a pocket on anything and I would be your customer. Girls don't get enough pockets. Penis envy? Fuck that. I'm all about pocket envy. Two of my favourite pieces of bottoms belong to boys--one's a pair of camoflage three-fourths and another is golf shorts. Both loose, yes, but with a belt and POCKETS. I love those clothes.
