Everybody Everywear, Breton(?) Stripes(!)
ETA: OK! Totally going to add it, but it won't be until tonight, for some reason EBEW is blocked at work. <3
I don't know. I googled, we chatted over Twitter...and I still don't know if this counts as a "Breton Stripe". Seriously. Google was zero help. Google images was even less help. Some said it needed to be navy and white. Others said it could be any color combo, but must be evenly spaced. Some said it must be a shirt to be Breton Stripes and others still said it must be a boatneck shirt. Well. This garment is none of those things. It's a skirt, it's black and white and the stripes are not evenly spaced. It is obviously not boatneck, since it has no neck. But I am with you in spirit. Should I upload this to the Everybody, Everywear page? Or did I miss the mark so much I ought to pass and give the next one a go? What say you, dear readers?
Regardless, it was a marvelous outfit.
Both comfortable and flattering.
I finally bit the proverbial bullet and shelled out the "big bucks" for some quality tights from We Love Colors, and I can absolutely tell the difference. They are warmer, thicker and more opaque than any of my other tights.
And this is another little body con skirt. I can't believe I avoided them for so long. I thought they would be unflattering on me. And I could not have been more wrong. This one actually looks nice enough with good tights under it I could have tucked the shirt in and felt totally fine about the ol' pooch. And my butt? Looks AMAZING. For reals.
I leave you with this outtake, which I have titled "Drunkface McGee", for totally obvious reasons...
