Lets talk about pants.
Pants are one of those things I love, but only the right ones. They have to be interesting in some way, even if they are as simple as a pair of black cigarette pants. Usually what sets vintage pants apart from modern ones is where the waist sits, back then it was, well, at the waist, and now it has settled just above the hips. And I have to say, for many women, having a line right across the widest part of your figure is not exactly flattering. Just saying. I look very different in high waist pants and hip hugging ones, the latter cut that curve of the lower back right in half, instead of enhancing it. Next time you go shopping for pants, try on not only varying leg widths, but waist placement. It doesn't have to be up so high you look like Urkle, but something that doesn't make you flash everyone in sight when you kneel down would be great.
And don't even get me started on muffin tops.
All I'm saying is pants are much more difficult to fit to your unique figure than skirts, a style on one person will not look the same on her best friend.
On another note, I had a great hair day today, see the wave? Yay for pin curls.
