(Disclaimer: if you think you’re going to GET fashion advice you’ve come to the wrong place!)
One of the many perks of being a writer is that there is no dress code.
I can wear blue jeans (my outfit of choice) every single day and no one cares because no one sees me. For that matter, I could wear this
and no one would even know!
(And I think I would look quite fetching.)
But on occasion it is necessary to go out in public, and that is where I run into trouble. Apparently blue jeans are not considered appropriate attire for graduations and weddings (who knew?), and I must attend several in the coming month. As I am absolutely hopeless when it comes to fashion and have the figure of a dumpling, I am faced with quite the challenge.
What to do?
Being resourceful, (but not in the sense of having financial resources or I would hire a personal shopper… or possibly a model to go in my place…) I decided to consult Google: “How to dress for your shape.”
Right away, I ran into problems. Hourglass, rectangle, diamond, apple…. Hmm…. no dumpling. What’s with that? My second shape choice, garden gnome, doesn’t show up either… I don’t look exactly like any of the choices they offer.
Figures. (I’m such a punster….)
Oh, well. Picking one that seemed somewhat close, I looked at the clothing suggestions.
A line? Wedge heels?
Balance? Elongate the torso?
Wrap tops? Belted jackets? Are they serious?
There is absolutely no hope.
So I will be going to both graduations and the wedding in this:
Maybe I’ll wear it to Book Expo tomorrow too…..
