By the books, I know this outfit is potentially the worst thing I could put on my short, stubby body but I think I've committed so many fashion dont's I actually became a do! As any top-heavy gal can tell you, button down shirts are a toughie. In fact, you are more likely to find a pair of Manolo Blahnik Maryjanes than a button-down that a) doesn't gap over the girls or b) isn't huge everywhere but over the girls. This shirt was a miraculous find as it neither gaps nor looks like a sack everywhere else. It's also swiss-dot which I adore! I knotted my shirt ends like I'm going to a Tiffany concert after work. It was a concious effort to enlongate my non-existant torso, does it work? (Don't answer unless you are singing my praises or want to go to the Tiffany show with me.)

Tea length is another Don't for the 5' and proud crowd but its in style so I had to give it a whirl. I added a nude wedge, (+1) with an ankle strap (-1) so I've neutralized my fashion wrong. Just call me Switzerland!
In all honesty, this red skirt is a dress, a six year old cocktail dress at that. It's been a long time since this dress was out for a spin so when I saw it at the back of my closet I could tell it was crying out, please pick me today! So I did. Don't call Stacy and Clinton on me, I was just meeting my closet's needs. Sometimes it can be so needy!
