I’m slowly entering into the world of professional adulthood, which means my clothes should too. I recently lost 10 pounds…THAT’S RIGHT, WORLD…so now my old work pants fit. Hoorah!
However, I’m left with zero dress shirt options. Ideally, I would have 1-2 button up shirts, 3-4 semi-casual tees and long sleeves, and 1-2 cardigans.
Sounds like a fun shopping trip! Wrong. For the first time in my life, I shopped for 3 hours without finding a single garment worth purchasing.
Pick your jaws up off of the floor, and I’ll tell you why.
The stingray sleeve aka “batwings”:
I have some curves, and this style does nothing to accentuate the small part of my waist, while hiding my hip jiggle. Instead, my torso becomes 1 indistinguishable blob. The stingray sleeve is on 90% of tops out there.
The other 10% have this cute little feature: Asymmetry.
Or better yet:
I also am particularly fond of the new look I like to call “I’m a peasant girl who stumbled upon a hippie festival”:
I realize that these looks work with some body types, but it’s definitely not mine.
I may have lost this shopping battle, but hopefully I win the war. I’m headed into battle again this weekend. Wish me luck!
