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!
