As you can see from the pictures above, I have put on a bit of weight. Alcohol and junk tend to do that to you. Stay away from both, you have been warned. Since this isn't a fitness blog as already evident from my pictures, I shall stop with my unhealthy lifestyle choices and discuss something that interests both you and me more: Fashion.
When you are on the healthier side, horizontal stripes should be avoided because they make you look broader. That is one of our 'sacred' fashion rules. I followed this and many other 'fashion rules' diligently for a long time. You see, I've never been the type to break rules. But once I started the blog, I started giving more thought to fashion and I got bolder and more experimental with every post. I wore horizontal stripes but always something loose so it never really made me look broader. Recently, when I saw this dress for 250 bucks (4.15 US$), I thought what the hell? It's worth a try! I should mention here that I love love love stripes.
It isn't a myth that horizontal stripes make you look broader. But if you like it, you wear it like a boss, irrespective of your size. If you feel pretty in it and are comfortable wearing it, you wear it. YOU. That is the key word here. We women spend too much time trying to look perfect. We forget the beauty in imperfection!
