For awhile now I've been wanting to buy a new suit. I've been on the lookout, tried on a bunch of options, and haven't found anything that fits particularly well or is all that flattering.
That said, I found something this morning that I might be into. BUT--since I'm never 100% sure about these things, and those of you who read this seem to have great senses of fashion, I want your opinion. I need my stylists!! Before I show you, I should tell you a few things about it.
- I LOVE the jacket and the look as a whole. I don't think it makes me look boxy or masculine, which I normally think when I'm in a suit.
- The jacket=size 20. The pants=size 18. I took pictures of the tags for evidence, just in case I am making this all up in my head. Size 18 pants? NEVER happened before, ever.
- The whole suit cost me $48, tax and all. Brilliant.
- The pants are the one thing I can't quite decide on. I'm not really a wide-leg girl, and since I have no butt, I don't know if I can really pull them off. The size 20's were too big in the leg, even though I really have to squeeze into the 18's (but they fit!) Maybe a tailor can work some magic on them?
The sizes. Yep, they're real. I still can't believe it myself. I also love the teeny-tiny polka dots.
