The Boxy Sweater Tuck

I got this yellow sweater a few months back, and despite my absolute adoration of the color, I was less thrilled with the fit. See, I’m still trying (despite what you may witness) to dress a little more for my body, and even though I am drawn to wide slouchy shapes, I find they don’t exactly scream sexy at the top of their lungs. This particular sweater would be fine if it were just a tad bit longer, but instead the bottom of the sweater hits right in the middle of the hip, making my waist just up and disappear.

But I am nothing if not stingy, and the thought of never wearing something I bought gives me the willies. In my desperation to wear yellow, I discovered that I could sort of bunch the bulk of the sweater behind me and tuck it into a higher-waisted stretchy skirt. The belt hides the extra lumps and viola! I got myself an outfit!

  2. A friend of mine got some navy blue pumps and asked me what she should pair them with. My first answer was yellow! I’m glad to know that my color combo has the Trophy Boutique stamp of approval. You look lovely lady :)
