hooray for shoulder pads! for someone like myself who hasn't been blessed with neither a sleek constructed shoulder line nor with the muscular phenomena going on around jennifer garner's clothes hanger (hello! i want that curve!), padding works miracles without looking too ott 80's.
but since i feel fondly about spacey garments and odd shapes, my choice of pads may be more star trek than average. i found this amazing gareth pugh-like cotton dress from h&m divided exclusive line (say what?). stuck in a lonely corner the short rack held a pretty flowery body and a really inviting grey stretch silk dress with ruffles just waiting to be grabbed. but i composed myself and took home only the white space uniform. the sun playing lady gaga on my head just accentuates the ethereal feel i get from wearing this dress.
a little on the short side, i will probably reserve combining it with chunky heels to late at night and stick to flats during the day.
finding the dress reminded me of another little piece i love because of the summery shoulder action: a (play?)jumpsuit from the 80's i bought three years ago from uff. i found it during my rummage through some storage boxes (see, there was color!) and just waited for the heat and some tan to kick in. the fact that i cannot decide whether it is phenomenally ugly or just incredibly cool is probably the reason i love it.
the coral color in combination with curve accentuation looks almost pretty, but the backside definitely reminds one of the downsides of jumpsuits: there isn't one that does not flatten and lengthen the booty. so, call me miss coral longbottom then.
are you fond of shoulder action?
