Pretty much everyone I've talked/posted with agrees... July '11 pretty much sucked all around. Come on... AUGUST! *pleeeeze be better*
Today's outfit wasn't stellar... but to be fair I thought I was going to work in a Red Cross shelter after a full day of semi-effective "lawyering" (or whatever those crazy kids call it these days).
Things I noticed about this top AFTER I got to the office:
1. The fabric is more sheer than I care for. I saw the black pants through the white fabric in the mirror at work. I could also kinda see my bra through it.
2. My brastraps kept popping out from under the tank straps. Not a good look.
3. It was pulling a bit across the bust. *sigh*
What most of these issues come down to is that I tried it on in the store wearing a different bra. A lighter-colored "nude" than the one today, with differently-shaped cups. Makes all the difference between trash and treasure... the correct undergarments.
For some reason, Hubby made me turn around for a back shot. The good thing about this bra is that it's one of the "back smoothing" models:
Too bad there isn't a "bingo-wing smoother"!
So what induced me to purchase this underwhelming piece? I fell for the pretties:
And I thought they would look particularly nice with my Christmas pretties from Hubby:
Maybe it will look better in August....

FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.
