As I mentioned in my last WIW, I wanted to challenge myself to use Angie's ensemble series to create outfits this week. Here's the continuation.
1/2. Party outfit inspired by "Ankle Pants with Ankle Strap Shoes"
3/4. Casual layers inspired by "Casual Layers with Cuddl Duds"
5/6. Holiday shopping outfit inspired by "Classic Fall Casual" ensemble.
7. Showing my Secret Santa gift -- stud earrings!
Now for the part you've been waiting for -- how to lose 10 lbs/10 years during the holidays!
- First, take a picture of yourself in front of a skinny retail mirror (picture 5)
- Second tip -- lean forward (picture 3) -- it will take inches off your thighs, and by pitching your torso forward your legs look miles long!!
- Third tip: never actually get a camera lens close to your face. Instead, take a picture from at least 3 ft away (preferably 5-10) then crop out everything but your face. (Picture 7) The grainy, blown up picture wipes away crows feet and turkey neck. No retouching wand needed! Also the use of flash fill is like a bit of botox or at least equal to a soft focus filter. Seriously. OK just half serious. ;-)
Thanks for looking and commenting! Any further weight loss/anti-aging tips welcome!
