Doing It On Purpose



I was at the bookstore yesterday and found the new Stacy and Clinton "What Not to Wear" Book Dress Your Best.

While paging through it, there was a picture of Stacy in an all black suit and fabulous pink heels. One of the take-aways was "If you're going to wear black - do it on purpose!".

So often people wear black to look thinner, to blend in, or because it's just plain easy - but today, I am wearing it to be fashionable. Black is, and always will be, a staple in the fashion world. Add some punch with fun accessories (i.e. argyle tights!), and a basic black suit is Oh-So-Chic.

You are gorgeous! Any girl would kill for those curves! Be proud - you're a gorgeous, sexy, confident woman! :-)

The whole outfit fits perfectly and is super flattering!

Wow! That is excellent.

Hmmm. I think when I wear black, I usually do it on purpose. It's not like I trip and fall into the clothes accidentally. You look great, very sex-ay.

Your stockings are gorgeous :0) I LOVE patterned stockings.

Those tights make me so happy - I am an unabashed argyle lover and wear it whether it's in or not in. Must have tights!
And I love Clinton and Stacey - I might have to get this book today.

That's a great outfit! I love the jacket but the tights most of all.
Clinton and Stacy know their stuff, don't they?

This is a very sleek and tailored look. I feel like this post could be re-labeled "Office Maneater." ;-)

Wow! The dark color with the vertical lines on the jacket (in addition to the heels) on an already thin person makes you look super slender and long.

*Sigh* I wish Stacy & Clinton would come help me out. Unfortunately (or not), my clothes aren't that bad.
