Dressing 10 Pounds Thinner
I’ve already admitted that I gained a little weight last semester. Not whale-scale, and not even hippopotamus-hips, but enough that some of my clothes are a little tight. And not just where they should be. 🙂
So what to do?
Let’s see if I can do at least a few of the things they suggest.
Match everything you wear
Pants or skirt, stockings and shoes. “You’ll seem 10 pounds lighter if they’re all black!”
Check. I’ve even got the all-black wardrobe from my obligatory goth fashion obsession a while back.
Accentuate your smallest part
Don’t wear full and round shapes around your full and round shapes. “Always accentuate your smallest part by pairing your more generously cut pieces with a snugger mate.”
My smallest part? Uhh … my feet? 🙂
Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to work. I’m pretty much mostly full and round shapes, especially at the moment.
Wear a tapered jacket
I’m not so sure about this one. I have a tapered jacket something like the one in Glamour’s photo, and it makes me look fat. Maybe it’s because I’m not a model who’s already thin enough that she doesn’t need to look 10 pounds thinner. 🙂
Choose shapely skirts
OK, at least now I feel better. Glamour is one of the magazines that is using some more normal-sized models. Just looking at the photo of this one made me feel thinner. I hope that didn’t sound snarky about the model. The camera adds 10 pounds anyway.
Hmmm. I’m kind of hungry, too … no, I’ll be good. Anyway, I need to do some reading. Ttfn!
