Letting go

After uploading these pictures
I saw the light...
the truth...
Yellow Isaac Mizrahi for Target- Tracy Evans skirt - Kenneth Cole black wedges - Burgundy bag - 

I am not wearing this yellow top ever again !

Purple cardigan Jennifer - black tank 
It's too revealing
I have to layer all the time
Boxy shape is not flattering
 I need to wear a special bra so that  the straps do not show
and
In the two years I've had the blog, well I have worn it
3 times, plus today = 4.

March 15, 2010                    April 29, 2010                  Jan 5, 2011

I think those are plenty of reasons to let go...

I love the color but you are right. You don't look your best in this top. You do, however, look wonderful in purple.

This color is great on you, so hopefully you can replace it with something in the same color? Although, I do like how you styled it on March 15, 2010.

And I love your skirt too!

That skirt is Gorgeous! I Love the yellow top as a sweater vest in the march photo! I would keep it and use it to go over button down tops.

I have the same problem with some of my tops, what seems to make it much better is if I layer a longer tank underneath that hits well enough below the waist. This elongates the torso and takes away the boxiness...I love the look of layers anyway, so I'm not sure I'd throw this away...

lolololol!!! i had a similar experience this weekend and i opted to buy NEW BRAS because some of my cutest bras are not supportive enough (big jugs can be a curse), and some tops FLATTEN them in a creepy way, so i look like i must be breast feeding a litter of kids. ugh!!!!

and SOMETIMES i think i look good from the front and semi-decent-ish from the backback, but all goes to hell when i look at the side view! argh! i can only imagine how much worse things would be if i photographed myself in outfits! THE HORROR! i would never. you are brave and you look fab, so there! :)

Isn't it amazing how sometimes the pictures tell the story? I have tops I thought were flattering until I saw myself wearing them in my photos.

I guess if you don't love it it's time to set it free, although I really like it layered over the striped top! ;)

Hola Lorena!
I actually really love this top layered overtop of the button-down shirt and the colour looks amazing on you.
