OOTD - Colette

BLOG 1
BLOG 2

   Being 5ft 4" is probably the thing I wish I could change most about my appearance. I'm not trying to be 'heightist', it's just that I get that sinking feeling every time I see Gisele Bundchen looking luxuriously long in a Salvatore Ferragamo ad, or the gorgeous Blake Lively in a side-split gown flashing a leg that, no doubt, goes all the way up to her armpit.

   I'm desperately trying to find clothes that will add an extra inch (or five) to my petite frame, but it's hard work for someone who adores ankle boots and cut off jeans.

   So I've gone in a different direction: the midi skirt.

   "What?" you say, "surely this shortens you to at least dwarf level?" Well, yes, but with a pair of my Topshop strapless courts, it looks rather appealing. Plus, this navy skirt (also from Topshop) is high-waisted, so it gives the impression of a longer bottom half.
   
   I've paired it with a duped Kenzo jumper and black bowler hat (both from eBay). Tell me what you think - does it work, or am I just kidding myself?

  1. Love this look doll. I'm 5"4 too and high waisted anything is my friend! That said, I have unusually long legs for my frame x x x
