So I wear clothes. I know, hard to believe right? LOL
But I actually do. And when I do, I actually like to look good, doesn’t everybody?
Now I have to admit, that for me, its a delicate balance. On the one hand, I have to consider size, I am not a small lady, but I am not necessarily large either and I have to consider age because I want to dress very chic and on trend without looking like I am trying too hard.
I also have the unique gift of being somewhat petite, with long legs, a short torso, ample buttocks, and boobs, and a bit of a hip area. So there are curves everywhere in a very small amount of space. Even when I was very thin, dressing my body was a challenge because of the long legs and the larger butt, which I have always had. Short skirts and dresses are always shorter on me, and anything form fitting on me will inevitably accentuate my behind or my belly even when it is nearly flat.
So honey, dressing this body is a challenge to say the least. And I figure, if I am challenged, some of you petite curvy ladies, or ill proportioned curvy ladies, or ladies with short bodies and long legs, like myself are probably challenged as well. And if you have broad shoulders, you may want to pay attention too.
Learning what looks good on us, what enhances the things that we want to enhance and what hides the things that we don’t want to see is the task at hand. Here are a few Summer looks that I wore in the past few weeks. I hope you find them interesting and that they will give you some fashion inspiration. Curvy, short, girls (over 40) can look good too.
