Welcome to the Sunday edition of dressing room diaries. During this weeks try on session my hair took the usual beating, the lighting could have been better and my pictures could be in better focus. Here’s an opportunity to see some new things styled on a real woman over 50 who weights more than the models that brands show us clothes on.
This Check Boyfriend Shirt comes in several colors. I am wearing the Orchid, which is fresh looking.
The shirt looked boxy over straight legged pants so I tied it at the waist and prefer the proportion. These are the NYDJ linen trousers which I love…with a little hemming. They’re a stretch linen which is very comfy. The trouser style is slightly dressier than a 5 pocket or pull-on style.
This Linen Tee came in 12 colors and fits beautifully.
It’s available in petites and regular, this is a regular M. It’s got an organza type flounce at the bottom which feminizes and dresses it up a bit.
The tee is thin enough to tuck into these high waist pants by Emerson Rose which is described as 9-5 wear but I think they’re a great basic black pant with stretch. These have a higher than usual waist which I love!
I topped them with this fun knit peplum jacket which comes in 5 colors, regular and petite. I prefer the regular length on me. It puts the shaping at the right place for my long torso and I always roll my sleeves anyway.
Here is the same linen Tee in black, one size smaller which felt too tight.
Little House on the Prairie comes to mind with this skirt but I liked it. It’s 100% cotton and would be very cool on sweltering days.
Note- You can see how the proportion changes with the tee tucked in. My legs look longer and I appear taller. The V-neckline looks slightly deeper but I look stouter through the middle.
This linen dress was great!
I like the directional stripes which are figure flattering. It also comes in a warm coral stripe. The deep side slits make it easy to move in and it is totally opaque so no slip needed.
This great layered dress is on sale in plus size in indigo here and deep navy here. It’s a great dress but sale things go fast so I couldn’t link to the one I am wearing in my size. The striped cardigan is a linen blend and is perfect to toss over everything.
This blouse is a peasant shape which is not my best look but I was surprised to like it. The cutout V at the neckline and striped fabric save it from looking too boxy. It comes in petite and regular.
I tossed on these gauzy tie waist culottes because I loved the color and fabric.
I love the wide leg but the paper bag waist is too much for my short self. These would be fun on a thinner woman with a curvier shape.
I tossed my own dress back on and topped it with this cool denim jacket.
It’s a slightly distressed denim with stretch and a fitted silhouette. It comes in petite and medium. I am wearing the regular length so the waist shaping is in the correct place on me.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts on yesterdays Would You Wear It. I give you my opinion on clothes all week so I enjoy hearing your opinion on Saturday.
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
