Be inVESTed

I know, I know the fit of the bottom of the pants is way ugly! Im sorry I had to show you this fit-trocity but it was the only picture I had with the shoes (cause it ties in the vest) =[  And you're probably lookin and sayin "dayyyym, isn't that the same top from the last work outfit? "

I dont care! I LOVE THIS TOP!!! lol  Im showing you versatility......yes versatility =] haha
 Break up that mundane office attire and have fun by mix suit seperates!  The trick is always make it look intentional and that you didnt just wake up late and slapped some clothes on.  Color is  one of the easiest tricks to pull off mixed sepereates. Always pick colors that compliment or work well with each other. This idea is great for guys too.  mmmmMMMMmmmmm if there aint anything sexier then a guy in a suit, is a guy who know how to dress and can mix suiting seperates. 

 I figured since this top was meant to be a loose silhouette, I wanted to offer different shape by pairing it with a fitted tailored vest. It helps contain the volume and helps refine your silhouette for the office. What also makes this work is how it contrasts of a loose fit top with a fitted, tailored vest. 

And a lace back to soften the tailored look.

The length of the blouse can be beneficial or a curse in how we perceive your body proportions. For the most part, in most blouses if it's to short like the 1st picture, it shortens your torso, chops up your proportions to where its not very flattering (and girl, I'm sure you don't want your tummy hangin out  all willy nilly greeting the world when you reachin for somethin).  If the shirt is too long(hitting at the bottom of the crotch),  it can creates the illusion of a longer torso, which causes your legs to look shorter then they really are. Generally it should hit you around mid-hip to offer the best body proportion. 

 Try on clothes! you never know how things fit until you try them on. Whats the worse that can happen? it doesn't fit? then  put on something esle that will show off what you mama gave you.

Well Im pooped and ready to knock out, til the next outfit!
