Ok, I know it’s a little late, but here’s my final Dress Your Best post. Today, I decided to play up my hips. As I said in my first Dress Your Best post, I actually like my hips. With my weight issues, I’m more sensitive about my waist. To me, my hips are a symbol of femininity, associated with general sexiness and somewhat with childbirth. And I’m not ashamed to say that I have child-bearing hips. However, my hips tend to get covered up in the attempts I make to hide my waist, so for Dress Your Best, I really wanted to let them have the spotlight for a little while.
There was a time that I collected belts that are meant to be worn on the hips, but again, like many things, they got shoved to the back of the closet when I gained weight. Today I pulled one of them back out. I wanted the belt to be the highlight of the outfit, so I kept the rest simple. Surprisingly (well, to me), I got numerous compliments on the belt and how nice I looked. This outfit is definitely a keeper, and it’s inspired me to go in search of my other hip belts.
Anyway, that’s the end of Dress Your Best week for me. And I won’t be teaching until a few weeks from now, so this will probably be the last fashion post until then. I’ll be picking up a lot of summer projects, so stay tuned for updates on those.
