Welcome, everyone to another Would You Wear It with me and my friend Jennifer. In Texas, we just opened some of the businesses yesterday with restrictions, but maybe…just maybe, I can have a mannequin shot for you by next weekend. I have my mask ready to go and hope it will happen. I also asked one of the store managers to help me out!
Typically, we go out and look for fashion displays we find “interesting.” We are not looking for styles we like or for styles we don’t like. We look for displays and styles which make us wonder what you would think of them. In the past, I have really enjoyed going out and about and scrutinizing fashion displays in search of one I want to bring here for discussion. We ask that you look it over and tell us if you would or would not wear it and why. Please be constructive and answer from a buyer’s viewpoint why or why not you would consider the look as right for you. Readers love to read the comments and learn from them, so please do not just say Yes or No.
I recently came up with the idea to feature looks in mailers I receive. But, then the mailers stopped coming. Perhaps in the world of budget cuts happening everywhere, the mailers have been put on hold or tabled all together. We will see. So, look this outfit from above over and tell us…………………………………………………
WOULD YOU WEAR IT????
ASSISTANCE FOR A READER
On Thursday, in the comments, Jan asked this,
“I have a concern that many readers may also have. Whenever we are allowed, I will be going to several funerals/memorials. It looks like temperatures will be hot, by then. One funeral will require a dress, which I don’t have. I am tall, busty, and have a tummy. The dress must have sleeves to the elbow at least, be relatively cool and cover my knees. I have looked countless times at various websites. I am now thinking that I need to try a skirt with a top or jacket, even though it will be hot. Would a kimono or ruana work with a skirt? Possibly a column dress with a kimono or ruana? Any suggestions that you have will be much appreciated.”
it sounds like Jan and I have similar body types, so I am going to answer as it I was the one looking for what to wear. Jan, I showed the picture above because it is from Lane Bryant, a site for plus size ladies. I wanted to show you that pencil skirts are universal and will look good on any size of woman. I have worn pencil skits, with a top that does not tuck in, and a covering like a kimono to many events. During the spring and summer, I will put the Jergen’s Tinted lotion on my legs in place of wearing stockings. The kimono jackets or toppers over a column of black or navy with a pencil skirt and top are slimming, chic and confident-dressing. I personally like the ponte knit pencil skirts. I am giving you a slideshow here that is just for this type of look and hope it will help you. Of course, kimonos look lovely over dressings as well, as long as the dress fits your body well and is not too bulky. If another reader would like to help Jan out, please do in the comments below. I hope your found this helpful Jan!
Now, I hope you will go over to A Well Styled Life and tell Jennifer what you think of her look. Then please come back and enjoy the Fabulous Finds I have discovered for you in today’s slideshow all from Nordstrom’s big sale… from the quirky to the practical. Thank you to everyone for being here!
