Brushstroked

Last fall I discovered the Inked Brushstroke Tank at Anthropologie.  It reminded me so much of an Emma Hayes wall covering I fell in love with that I had to get it to wear to a holiday party.  I rarely wear black because of my appeal to color and this top fulfilled that artistic look I typically go for.  It totally made it worth being devoid of color.

The first time I wore this top it was with a pair of black jeans that just plain ‘ol wore out, so when I saw the Mossimo Quilted Side Ponte Pants at Target, I immediately thought that these would be perfect to go with this top.  While I love the look, I really should have done a little more movement in the fitting room to make sure they would work for me (which should always be the case when purchasing pants when short-waisted, hello shopping addiction mode!).  I could have sworn they fit like a glove in the store, but in the light of reality in my bedroom they seem to be a different story.

The front comes up way above my navel (ah, the beauties of being short-waisted) and the back is really low, making it challenging when bending and sitting without looking like a plumber.  Thank goodness the shirt is long.  I even tried putting them on backwards thinking they were made with a higher rise on the front, but that was not the case.  Well, I guess you could say I have a little Kim K. moment happening back there.  Could be worse.  Oh, and then the front kept slipping down giving me the infamous “man-crotch” that is so attractive. (ya right)  Am I the only short-waisted woman that has these issues?

I am sadly coming to the conclusion that all my Target and Old Navy pants really do not fit me that well and I need to stick to brands that suit my body type.  On the positive side of this look, I completed it with the ZipIt Hooded Heels from Payless and Drape Front Pleather Jacket from JCPenney that both fit great.

Life is too short to worry about stupid things.  Have fun.  Fall in love.  Regret nothing, and don’t let people bring you down.

    1. Oh, you are so welcome. I am enjoying your posts as I now follow you on Bloglovin. Thank you for your compliment as well. I have a feeling that these pants are no longer available in the US either. I have got to figure out a way to alter them to have them fit better.
