Lately, I have developed an odd penchant for selecting clothes that are not really all that great for my body type. I have been eyeballing (and purchasing) things such as thigh-high and over the knee boots, short dresses, and oversized/menswear tops. For someone who is larger in the chest and thighs, these are not necessarily the most flattering choices. I often fluctuate between thinking that one should stick with what looks good on their body type and saying f*** it, I'll wear what I want. On the one hand, I like to look nice in my clothing; on the other hand, it is not my job to be visually appealing to others and I enjoy experimenting with outfits and makeup. I suppose it depends on how I feel, sometimes I feel a bit more toned down; other times, I feel like saying what the hell and wearing something that will get me the side-eye all day.
One nice thing about where I live is that there are a variety of alternative dance nights to go to. These are great because I can wear anything I like and I don't have to worry about running into someone from work whilst wearing green lipstick or something. For this particular evening, I wore a shorts jumpsuit...... I NEVER wear shorts OR jumpsuits but I could not resist this one; it was on the clearance rack and it has the most amazing flowing sleeves ever! I paired it with another questionable wardrobe choice: thigh high boots. I am not sure that they are the most flattering but I LOVE THEM.....they are made of beautiful olive green suede. I wonder if I should have got them in black instead but I couldn't resist the olive green. (I also couldn't resist wearing metallic olive green lipstick with them!)
