Outfit for 2-2-2015 - Long Torso

Sweater - Michael Kors
Top - Patty Boutique
Skirt - 36 point 5
Shoes - Born O Concept

Today Jules and I needed to go get our nails done as well as to do some shopping at Costco and Trader Joes.  I put together this outfit primarily because I felt like showing a bit of cleavage as I have not been feeling particularly feminine lately and thought I could use a bit of a visual boost.

I think this top does a great job of showing off my smallish decolletage.  In fact for not having any breasts at all, I think the illusion I can create is fabulous and it always gives me a great boost to my ego!

And it always makes me laugh!

So in that way I really like this outfit, but something looked a bit off to me.  I tried on three different sweaters and none of them really solved the problem for me.  I couldn't really tell what was off about it.  But in looking at my photos, I think the proportions are a bit off.  With the striped top being so long it really extends my torso and think that is the problem.  In general men have longer torsos than women and I think this outfit makes my torso look even longer.  Especially with the sweater being so long, that only makes it worse.

But it works, okay.  Not fabulous, but still, okay!  :)

I want to say thanks to everyone who reached out after my previous post, I appreciate all of the support that everyone out there has given me in working through this challenging time in my life.

Thank you all so much!

Love you!
