[Lookbook 01.09.2013] Refocusing attention with stripes


Oh yay, my first outfit post of the year! It's actually been a while since I last posted one. Well, the holidays are definitely over and sadly, they're not easy to forget, what with all the excess poundage that hound me every time I try on clothes! Oh yes, I'm fat, so I'm trying to divert attention from my midsection with some vertical stripes.


With a purple shirt, my default color for trousers would have been black but I was trying to stay clear of that today. I was debating with myself between this light brown piece and an olive green one, eventually settling with the former.

I thought brown shoes or some brogues would have been the perfect footwear but I was feeling all casual today. So I ended up wearing boat shoes -- but in olive green! How's that for something different? They're so comfy yet so inexpensive, by the way.

Meanwhile, I kept the belt brown. I also removed the rather outlandish frame of my watch since there's already a lot going on.


So anyway, I don't think the stripes helped. I'm still fat.
Striped shirt (Memo); pants (Tyler); boat shoes (The Flying Dutchman at The Collective); belt (Hickok at SM Dept. Store); watch (Jeremy Scott for Swatch).

  2. That's a lovely shirt, and don't worry you're not fat! I think it is a great outfit for work!

    But neverthls you look good with those stripes and your shoes is definitely a striker for this outfit:)

  5. Don't be coquettish, the last word, that might be used to describe you is "fat" :D I fell in love with this olive moccasins - so untypical and original! :D

  6. Like I have said to many others before you: "If you didn't gain any holiday fat, you're doing it wrong" ;)


  7. I do like your style here a lot. Great color combination.
    Best Regards
