Wow, it sure is interesting looking at the three sets of photos. First off, I love this outfit especially my Banana Republic Hampton Fit Crops! I also love my C. Wonder floral pumps that I knew I would find tons of uses for! But what is interesting is looking at the hair changes in each of the photos. The first set I had a side-part with a masculine comb-over. When I originally looked at those photos I really disliked them, but now when I look at them next to the other photos…I think it looks good! The side-part comb-over actually shortens my long face which has a visually pleasing effect. But I still think it is a bit masculine to wear my hair like that every single day, so I will keep experimenting. I can’t decide which I like more, the Pour La Victoire navy heels or the C. Wonder floral heels. I tend to go with the C. Wonder heels because they continue the floral theme I started with the necklace. I also think the purse serves to feminize the outfit instead of having my hands in my pockets as though I’m a man with a wallet! Finally, my last observation is that it is imperative for me to lose weight if I want to wear my hair down. Wearing my hair down serves to highlight the double-chin from the weight gain, so that is a big no-no! Gives me good motivation to hit the gym harder!!
P.S.- I realized another huge difference…don’t laugh!! Top photos I’m wearing a VS push-up bra whereas the last photos feature a Stella Mcartney bra. I think VS push-up won…I do…because I look thinner overall and more balanced out.
