So, anyway, yes, we had an honored guest over for dinner (yummy homemade appetizers, homemade pastitsio again, salad, and home-baked pineapple upside-down cake) and I decided to dress up for him. I went for one of my favorite color combinations and piled on the mascara:
I considered wearing this dress with my Steve Madden boots again, but my husband convinced me to wear "normal" shoes rather than boots for a quiet evening at home. I guess he was right, but I came to an important conclusion, one that I've been sitting on for about a year:
Wedges are not flattering on me. For so many years, I've been told that they're just as elongating to the legs as heels, but more comfortable, blah-blah-blah fashioncakes. Um, not so with me, yo! My legs are blessed (cursed?) with a bunch of natural curves/muscles and I think that these wedges (which, in their defense, don't have that much of a wedge - they're quite low) just exacerbate the curviness of my legs and stumpify the whole leg, and thereby, the whole effect.
So, my final conclusions?
- Low wedges aren't as flattering on me as flats, weirdly enough
- Wedges do look great on super-skinny legs
- I don't have super-skinny legs. Ergo, wedges don't look great on me
- I shouldn't wear wedges with skirts and expect that my legs look gazelle-like
See? Bullet points! Doesn't that make my conclusions look all official and stuff?
Well, now time to wiggle my nose and see if I get magically transported to bed!
