Le Veston- My Denim Vest

Le Veston

A few observations. First, I feel so 80’s today with my new vest. Second, I might be obsessed with denim… hahaha

Today’s proutfit is brought to you by my new Old Navy light wash denim vest, perfect to hide chubs and rolls! he he We can’t all be sleek but we sure can try and hide our flaws!

This cut is perfect for me as it hits high, right at my waistline and really helps accentuate it. For a more pear shaped body type, or if you are blessed with a booty, I would recommend a longer version, the Plus Denim Vest.

These vests are perfect for the summer. They keep you cool, but covered. Give you a more tailored finish without being too restricting and best of all, as I mentioned above… it helps to hide imperfections. I will be wearing it with skirts and dresses./.. so watch out!

Yes, I have imperfections. It doesn’t mean that I hate myself. I am just on a mission to find flattering clothes and help you do the same!

Why can’t we accept Lena Dunham’s self-acceptance?

We get it Lena, you love your body! But why is it so hard for us to accept it!

It seems like we just can’t possibly fathom the notion that a woman, who doesn’t have the stereotypical Barbie shape that we associate to beauty, loves herself. The way she is. Do you see the disconnect here?

Why does this picture bother so many of us?

On May 25th 2015 Lena Posted a picture of herself in a moss lace two-piece lingerie set.

Lena Dunham is an American actress, author, screenwriter, producer, and director. She is best known for creating, directing and staring in the HBO hit series Girls. In this show, she is often seen either topless or exposing her body comfortably. She has really changed the landscape for women’s self-love with her laissez-faire attitude. We love and we approve!
