fancy pants

There's a lovely guest at today's Fancy Pants. Unfortunately, she didn't want to be in front of the camera (which is a shame because she has a pretty awesome style). But rather she took today's photographs. Which was embarrassing for me really (just goes to show that an ironing board is much easier to pose for).

It also goes to show that I am a terrible model. She made wonderful suggestions which I just felt awkward doing and couldn't stop laughing (that was the embarrassment talking).

But my gorgeous step-daughter Kelly has been a tourism photographer in Paris (I know!) and works with some of the most amazing people - in front and behind the camera (see who she works with here).

As you can tell, these necklaces are a staple. And I pretty much have them on my bedroom tallboy. All. The. Time.

And can I just say that I'm loving this more structured fashion? It works so well for the hourglass figure. (Hello, curves anyone?) No more big blousy shapeless gear for me. I've recently discovered (because I'm always lagging behind in these things) that tucking in is so much more flattering that hanging out. And a belt finishes things off nicely. Who would have thought?

Certainly not me. (Note to self: purchase a skinny belt. Pronto.)

And yes. Wedges. Again. But these are a good angle and give you a great look at them (for those of you who have been asking...)

And yes. I'm a dag (in case you were wondering). And Kelly sure brings that out in me.
