OOTD :: of bodycon outfits and celebration

Totally milking it right now and loving life.

Today, I present yet another pencil skirt outfit. And I felt so audacious this morning that I actually left behind the cropped blazer I’d planned on wearing.

Hello, world! Look at my arms!

But my audacity doesn’t stop there, my friends! Take this top – it has been in the cull pile more times than I can remember because it’s sheer and clingy and not very forgiving. If I eat the wrong snack product or drink one glass too many of water, forget about wearing this number without looking bloated.

I’ve kept it, though, because it’s a Max Studio and I have a particular fondness for this brand. And I chose to wear it today because I love how the hem detail contrasts really nicely against the light pink of the skirt. However, if I was truly honest, I’d have to admit that part of my boldness stems from knowing that I’m wearing an inordinate amount of shapewear; so much so that I might as well be Joan of Arc, that’s how much armor I’m sporting underneath all this body-hugging glory.

Remind me to do a weekend post on the awesomeness that is Spanx.

And because of Spanx, I can actually wear two bodycon pieces. Normally, if I wear something tight up top, I have to mitigate it with something unstructured or looser on bottom and vice versa. Today’s va-va-va-voomness is a product of my continued celebration of my not gaining the weight I thought I had at Yale.

Fine, fine…I promise to stop being so insufferable about it eventually. But you gotta admit that this skirt looks damned good with this top.

:: Just the facts, ma’am ::
Top – Max Studio @ Marshall’s
Skirt – F21
Shoes – Adrienne Vittadini
Necklace – Vera Wang @ Kohl’s

And from my world of random (and thanks to Sarah Solar): Christian Bale fans have really “Ben Affleckted” by the new choice for Batman.

You know it’s funny. You just laughed. Admit it.

      I’m wondering if they’re gonna stay with canon and the same universe or if they’re gonna do another reboot. Either way, he damned well better be good.

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
