When I was getting ready Thursday morning, I had something a little different in mind. I knew I wanted to wear these fantastic wide-leg trousers that I almost didn't buy (they aren't high-waisted - psshh), but beyond that I wanted to wear a loose T and a loose sweater. Half-way through getting dressed, I realized I had to gallery sit after work, so I wanted to go with something a little more professional. A blazer! From sloppy to professional in one fell swoop. My plan worked! A woman at work (not noticing my Hawthorne Heights shirt) told me I looked professional - the MAIN difference between working in a creative environment and an ACTUAL professional environment. And then a few hours later, another co-worker told me I looked like I'd lost weight (how sweet!). The illusion these wide-leg trousers and tailored blazer create on a body that isn't in the best of shape, is fantastic! So next time you want to throw on those trusted and true skinny jeans, opt for a wide-leg pant and a slim heel and let the good times roll!
