You know how sometimes you look in the mirror and you think, “Oh yeah, this looks gooood!”  And then you take a picture of yourself and start to think, “Hmm, maybe not.”  Or does that just happen to me?

In the interest of full disclosure, I have worn this outfit before and not photographed it.  Now that I’ve photographed it, though, I’m not so sure it should be worn!

Let’s deconstruct.  Of course, it could just be the angle of the camera or the way I’m standing but to my eye this outfit does nothing to hide my super-short torso or my hips.  But you know what?  I have a super-short torso and hips.  So if I want to wear my red sweater with my light gray (and slightly sparkly although the camera didn’t really catch that) pants I will.  So there.

Although maybe next time I’ll work on my posture and tug down the sweater a bit.
