T-shirts, t-shirts, read all about 'em

T-shirts are so basic, they should be so easy to pick out right?
but Ive noticed that some women must have a really hard time with something like this, even I as a particularly..'gifted' young lady have trouble with this.
And one, or two I should say, of the biggest reasons that t-shirt doesnt fit right are men's best friend.
You know, the globes, 3rd base, love pillows, whatever you call them, we have them and they can make outfits better, or so much worse.
Anyway to cut to the chase, I thought I could do a mini-guide on T shopping for your, ahem, little blessings.

Small to Regular Bust
(probably A/B)
-high necks and asymmetrical necklines broaden the shoulders and create the illusion of a larger bust.
-Printed tees are also flattering for small chests.
-try sleeveless shirts. Women with small chests tend to have slimmer arms so the goal is to draw attention to them and away from the chest.
WARNING: Avoid low scoop-neck tops or deep V-neck tops with three-quarter sleeves. They accentuate bony chests and draw attention to your, lack of, assets The V acts as an arrow to the ladies and the sleeves accentuate small arms.

Regular to Full Bust
  • (probably a C/D)
    -scoop necks and V-necks break up the expanse of the chest area and draw attention away from your bust.
    -stick with solid colors.
    -cap sleeve, long sleeve and three-quarter sleeves camouflage larger arms that sometimes accompany larger chests.
    WARNING: high, round neck and square neck T-shirts make full busts look like one bulky mass. Also avoid sleeveless and oversized T-shirts, enhance your curves don't try to hide them, you'll look sloppy

Anyway dears heres an outfit I wore one day this week.

top-sisters $?
cardi-American Eagle Outfitters sale $10
jeans-Sear's sale $5
belt-found around house $?
moccasins-rack room shoes ~$30

I was extremely tired and needed to wear these new jeans so I pretty much based my outfit on these two elements.
I feel so bad that im restricted to posting on weekends.
I wish I had time to post all my inspiration and outfits and how-tos,
but, sadly, education and life get in the way.
Soon Ill be off to culinary school (hopefully) and that is all I can anticipate lately.

On another note, Ive always heard of chictopia but never even went to the website.
I finally got to check it out this week and I really love it

so,drumroll, I finally got around to setting up my account
its just starting out, im not an icon yet-and probably never will be
but if youd like to offer some support please click

Please let me know if these help you because Im not sure if you guys want more or you want to ban these from my blog.
Im always open to feedback i guess?

My brown-eyed girl

Hello my darlings, its been a while, I feel like theres so much to say but now trying to write it all down, my head is empty
so my week was hectic and busy. surprise, surprise, I know.
Today I slept late-until 10 which is late compared to weekdays-and baked a nice cake with chocolate frosting and dreamt of boys and took pictures and watched football and did all the things a girl should do on a warm afternoon relaxing.
Ive had non stop stuff to do this week, I can barely even get 8 hours in a night, which is really horrible because I'm not one of those people that can wake up from 5 hours and even function.

Ive also developed a love of brown and moccasins and all things earthy this week.
I think its because, for some reason, most of my belts are brown.
Not to mention Ive been living in my moccasins, we've gotten our first wave of autumn in the south, a ridiculous 70 degrees-burrrr!

chictopia girls, Mary Kate, and Jessica Szohr all enjoy their dose of leather footwear too.

dress-CR $4
belt-cant remember....
moccasins-rack room shoes

I love these pictures. The one above was me rushing to get in place before the flash went off and I love the shadows on my hands and I took this next picture in my sisters room-whose window actually brings in sunlight unlike mine. Hopefully my pictures will keep improving for you guys.

(PS: Have you seen Agyness Deyn's new hair You might feel differently, but I for one think its...for lack of a better word B-A-D. I'm all for free expression And will this affect her career? I mean isn't this kind of thing hard to work with for some designers? I don't know...just saying.)
Thank you all for the visits and comments
I check all the time even if I'm not updating everyday anymore
