Fit Issues and a Boot Dilemma
In an attempt to keep things real, here are two things come to mind when I look at these pictures:
1. That cardigan just doesn't fit right. I really, really wanted to love this cardigan. After all, it was less than $15. And it has elbow patches (woot.) And I think I would loved it, if I had bought a size up. I bought an XS, forgetting that I have a condition I like to call monkey-arm. It's a good day if I can find a long sleeved item that fits my body and is long enough for my arms. But if you need someone to grab something that has fallen behind the middle of a dresser- I'm your woman. Anyway, back to the cardigan- the arms are just too short. See the seam of the shoulder- it's sitting too low on my arm in an attempt to make the elbow patches sit on my elbows... and not my triceps. That's the problem with online shopping- you're always taking a gamble with the fit.
2. I may not love my slouchy boots as much as I thought. I'm a person who will keep wearing something I love, even if it goes "out of style." Especially if I think it's still flattering. I've known for a while that my slouchy boots were way past their peak trend-wise but I still liked them, they were comfortable, and so I planned on still wearing them. However, I have found myself wearing them less and less. And now, looking at these pictures, I realize that it may be time to retire them... but then I just looked and them again and now I'm torn...
So this is where I need your help- do I keep the too-short cardigan and the out-of-style slouchy boots? What would you do? Should I get arm length reduction surgery? (jk.)
