Oversized and Overwhelmed

I like that slouchy sweater, over-sized piece of clothing look...on other people. At 5'1" I feel like my frame disappears beneath something that doesn't fit me properly. Still occasionally I come across an article of clothing that doesn't suit my idea of "flattering" and I can't resist. Like this sweater; big and loose and far too long, but with a little half-tuck I still look reasonably proportioned from the front. I wore it quite often this past summer as a light layer, but never showed it on the blog because as mentioned: turns me into a bit of a striped blob. Still, I do love it.

  2. That's funny, I was in Pepe Jeans in the summer and bought the same dress that you have from them (before I'd seen it here) and I almost bought that sweater as well! In the end I didn't think the colours went well enough with most of my summer things, but I did really like it.
    Great minds think alike. :)

  8. Whether oversized or not, this outfit in no way overwhelms you. In every outfit you post, you wear the clothes--they never wear you! You have great style.
