Fashion and Beauty are a state of mind...

My Badgley Mischka Blouse

When I saw this Badgley Mischka tunic with self-tie on HSN.com I was star-struck with the diamond print. It really caught my eye. The beadwork down the front of the blouse is so glam.

I was a little self concious putting the tunic on because I was wondering if it was going to look large on me.  I ordered it in an extra-small but it was still quite big. I felt that if I wore flats with it I might look somewhat pudgy. Instead I put on my  Vince Camuto platform heels and I feel I look more balanced out. I am so use to wearing princess-cut, fit to the body, clothing that it took a bit for me to get use to this blouse.

I paired the tunic with black trousers and I felt slim. I really exercise consistently to keep in shape but I still find myself really being picky about how clothing looks on me. I don’t know if everyone is the same way about certain pieces of clothing but I am.  I paired this with a couple of different pants and skirts before I went out the door for work with this ensemble.  Yes, I wear beads to work and why not.  Beads go day or night. I am undecided about this top,  will let you know if I decide to keep it. Give me your honest opinions?  Do you like it?

My doggies always have to be in the photo with me.  You see a collie and the tail of a beagle.  What a joy!

    Keep! I love the colour on you! I think billowy blouses are a very different look if you are used to wearing fitted things. I love them personally. I’d say you could wear this with a flowy, billowy maxi skirt too for a more bohemian look.

      I am keeping the blouse, thanks for the styling advice, I will take it. It’s taken a little bit of time for me to get use to the billowy blouses. I don’t know maybe I thought they made me look bigger.

    I agree that the heels were a good idea to emphasize how slim and glam you really are!
