Here I am breaking two of the rules in The Lucky Shopping Manual. First, I haven’t buttoned the top button of my blazer. I almost never button the top because the result just isn’t flattering on my body type. I fasten the button nearest my waist to define it and then leave the upper button unfastened so that the jacket bows out a bit, giving me the illusion of a larger chest. The result is curvy silhouette. If I buttoned the entire jacket, I’d be shapeless. The second rule I’ve broken is wearing heels with a long skirt. Lucky advises flats. I’m stumped as to why (ha, ha, unintentional pun!) I don’t think I have ever worn flats to work; I need all the height I can get. Generally, I enjoyed the Manual, and found the advice on proportions to be very good. I just happened to dress defiantly today.
