Slimming


photos by my Mom (Thanks Mom!)



This coat has to be one of my favorites in my closet, it's the perfect winter-to-spring transition piece. I wore it this past weekend after the 10 cm's of snow we got unexpectedly the day before started melting. Let's just hope it continues to melt, I'm ready for winter to be OVER! ; )

jacket - Asos (old but similar options here), sweater -c/o LOFT (other striped options here), 
jeans - Hudson, bag - Marc by Marc Jacobs via Shopbop, ring - H & M (old, similar here), 
booties - Vince Camuto (click for more styles), scarf - Chandi via Bamboo Ballroom 

Stylist's Tip: Black is the most slimming of colors because it doesn't reflect light. Colors that do reflect light create shadows. Since shadows are dark, you cannot see them on black material. If you want to look a couple of pounds lighter but don't want to go on a diet - WEAR BLACK for a slimmer and sleeker silhouette! But be careful of wearing black spandex, sequins or Lycra - these fabrics will reflect light regardless of their color ; )
