Fashion Thursdays

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.

And oh yes, I can knock something off of this list now. It’s not gray or small, but I think it filled the void in my heart nicely and will get lots of love for years to come.
