WIWW and How to Dress For YOUR Shape

Linking up with Lindsey for WIWW http://thepleatedpoppy.com/2012/06/what-i-wore-wednesday-73/. This week I did something I haven't done before....I took pictures in various combinations of outfits (accessories, jackets, etc) to see what looked best BECAUSE what seemingly looks great in the mirror doesn't always translate to great in reality....taking a picture helps! 

Friday - Work....If you guys check out Allison's casual Friday you already saw this! 

 What I am wearing:
Turquoise Collar Necklace - Chico's
Black T-Shirt
Jean Capris - Chico's So Slimming (These ARE SO FAB)
Wedges - Walmart 2008

Saturday - Work (and this is a prime example of taking a photo to see what looks best which is why I put both pics up). Here I thought the belt would look best outside of the jacket....

BUT after trying the belt UNDER the jacket I thought it looked best this way....
 What I am wearing:
Brown Jacket - Macy's
Pink Tank - Macy's
Belt - Chico's
Zebra Pants - Chico's
Gold Braided Cuff - Vintage
Gold Ball Necklace - Talbots via the Thrift

Sunday was Work day # 3 for me....I had to dress for comfort AND style....and here is another example of photo trial....Sleeveless jacket belted over tank....

No jacket and JUST a belt....

OR the Classic Denim jacket OVER belted tank...THIS is the option I chose - I want YOU to weigh in and tell me WHICH style YOU liked best.....

What I am wearing:
Denim Jacket - Kohls - 2007
White Tank - Macy's
White Skirt - Macy's
Belt - Chico's
Boots - had FOREVER since 1999
Wooden Bead Necklace - Old - Target I think
Assorted Wooden Bracelets (from L to R) : Target via the thrift, thrifted, theSassyPearl


Monday morning had me at work at 7 am so again I went for comfort and style (and lacked time to wash my hair hence the scarf)
 What I am wearing:
Scarf - Thrifted
Vest - Chicos (remember I tried pairing this with the white tank above?)
Belt - Chicos
Boots - Old 1999
Assorted Bangles - here, there and everywhere!!

Tuesday - work (this again was another example of taking pics to see what looks best)
Belted....

NOT belted (THIS was the look I chose)
What I am wearing:
Sheer Tunic - Chico's
Jean Capris - So Slimming - Chicos
Layered Necklaces - Consignment and Target via the thrift

Can't wait to see what YOU wore - always looking for new inspiration!! I LOVe hearing from you, so leave me a comment!!

I liked the denim jacket over the belted tanktop out of the 3 options. I like that you take the photos to see what looks best. I have noticed too from taking WIWW pictures that some outfits look okay in the mirror and then really terrible in the photos (at least to me)! I like all your outfits!

honey, I'm so with you. It is so mind opening to actually see a PHOTO of what it looks like. I'm amazed how I'll not be feeling an outfit, but it looks great when I see it pictured, and vice versa.

I loooove those zebra pants! Placing the belt under the jacket was where it was at!!

XOXO

It is so amazing what a denim jacket can do. I loved the look when you wore it over the tank and skirt. I have been searching the thrift store for one but I haven't found one. I bet the minute I break down and pay a small fortune for one will be the day I find one in the thrift store!!
