I was totally on my own last night.
There was no patient roomie to help me take my outfit pics - so...I had to come up with other means...
Concrete ledges. Railings. Banisters. Steps. Even...
A grill! A dusty, stingy grill. But, she held up rather well and did as best as she could.
With that said, I definitely prefer the human version or one that I could at least feel comfortable propping up a $500.00 camera on. So, I ordered this.
That should do the trick on lonely nights.
I tried as desperately as I could to get a full body shot, but it just wasn't happening with 'Ol Red up there.
You'll have to piece together in your own mind how the bottom half fits with the top.
Why this outfit works:
I am rather short (or so I am told!) and I am constantly looking for ways to elongate my frame. The vertical stripes of my top instantly draw the eye to a more narrow frame and the vertical embellishment along the button line does the same.
I usually tend to keep an open neckline to further create the illusion of length.
The high-waisted pencil skirt hits me just at mid-calf and makes my short little legs look long! However, only paired with the heels does this work. If I wore this skirt with flats, I would look like a reformed nun out of 1970.
What do you do to create the illusion of length?
