Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of watching my friend model at the Liberty Hotel. That afternoon, I peered into my closet and was suddenly alarmed – I had nothing fabulous to wear. As I am aging, long gone are the days of partying past 2am on weeknights. My wardrobe has slowly been whittled down to about 90% professional attire, plus some casual stragglers. There’s no excuse for this tragedy…I hope to infuse some fun pieces into my wardrobe this year.
I was relegated to wearing this old H&M; sz 4 (yes, 4…it runs so small) bandage dress plus black ankle booties.
I also had the pleasure of meeting up with IamKhatu. If you haven’t checked out Khatu’s blog yet, you’re in for a treat. She wears delightfully trendy outfits and is a testament against the excuse that tiny ladies have a harder time being fashion-forward. The photo above is us kicking our shoes off to compare height (I was in 4″ booties, and she, in 6″ platforms). Being that I’m 5 feet tall, dare I guess Khatu is 4’10” or below?
Khatu talked about how a lot of her clothes are still big for her, but it’s all in how you wear the garments, stand, and carry yourself. She also does a lot of DIY alterations. Below is her trademark strong-shouldered coat from Zara that is big on both of us. The coat is undoubtedly wearing me and swallowing me up, versus Khatu who is wearing and rocking the coat.
