During the after Christmas break I took some time to finish and make myself up a few new pieces for the new year. In my continuing saga of replacing my ready to wear shirts I whipped up this super soft bird print. I must admit I bought it online and didn't comprehend the part of the description that said, "light green background". It looked white in the pictures so it was quite a shock when I opened the box and my white looked yellowish. But I loved the print so I persevered and made the shirt. Once I had it on with my finally finished brown tank top and brown pants, I was in love.
|Up close and personal, this fabric really drapes well.
When I came upstairs wearing this outfit my Mom remarked how skinny I looked. I told her it was because: 1. I was wearing clothes that fit me in the depths of winter when I'm usually bundled up and 2. it was because my pants hit me at about the smallest part of my waist, so guess where the eye is drawn!
|Love creating optical illusions with what I wear. Long torso or tiny waist? Which do you prefer?
Do you try to create optical illusions when you dress? How do you incorporate prints into your dressing? My family thinks this shirt is pretty wild and I will agree it is a "less is more" shirt. It works great with the new wardrobe I am trying to build and when I throw my brown fuzzy vest over it I feel ready to go!
