Start Close In. I have been looking forward to this since Lynne first posted about her experience with Ella. You can read about it here.
One of the things I hoped to come away with was just looking more intentional - more put together with my clothes. And to feel good. See - again - I've gained some weight - thanks menopause!
Ella and I discussed what the difference is between Joan from Mad Men with her little belly being drop dead sexy and if I tried to wear something similar - I would just feel exposed and like my clothes are too tight. So - what's the difference? Is it attitude? Feeling comfortable in your own skin? what?
The other thing I've known and apply to my sewing - is the rule of threes. So, normally I would wear this denim pencil skirt with an untucked tee for running errands on the weekend. Today, I tucked in my tee, added a belted cardigan and the shawl that I recently knit.
The skirt is Simplicity 2154 in denim. This is how I do jeans Friday's at work.
So - talk to me please. How do you feel about fitted clothing if your shape isn't model perfect?
