OOTD: White Stripes

The sign of a good outfit isn’t how many compliments you get on it or how close it is to a look in a magazine – it’s how damn good an outfit makes you feel. Today, I put on this casual outfit and felt comfortable and chic and modern – how I wish all my outfits made me feel.

    Love it!

    You look wonderful. Am very envious of your perfectly coiffed hair as well. I use to have hair like that…then I turned 35 and (I’ve been told it’s due to hormone changes) my super straight hair went all crazy wavy on me and now needs 5 million styling products and 20 minutes of flat ironing to look halfway decent in the mornings.

    That cardigan really works well to give you a more defined waist.

    What are the Eloquii jeans like? I want to try them, but I’m not sure they’ll fit.

      I’ve tried 2 different kinds- the JAG Trouser Jeans (reviewed here: http://authenticallyemmie.com/2012/02/outfit-of-the-day-eloquii-by-the-limited/) and the curvy fit bootcut. In my experience, the JAG ones fit pretty true to size, however the curvy fit bootcut were a little large. Both stretch out during the day, but the curvy bootcuts stretch worse than the JAGs. I think like all jeans, it is inconsistent – you can wear 1 size in 1 cut, then get another one from a different manufacturer lot – same brand a size- and they won’t fit.

    I must say, compliments make me feel better in my own clothes… (you look great, BTW)
