It's mid January 2015.
It was very busy and the cash registers were ringing.
By the looks of these, Style into Action has no idea why.
|Pale colour, wide leg. |
Not for reproductive types or petites.
Those D rings go along way
to adding bulk to your tummy too.
|Chinos with many waist pleats & narrow ankles. |
Fabulous for pears. Not.
|A stretch denim body con dress. In theory a good idea. |
That's why there was only one left.
|I am white & I make things look bigger than they are.|
I am boxy & oversize and I hide your shape &
make you look bigger than you are.
Why dont you want to buy me?
|This one is wearable & timeless.|
That's why there was only one on the rack.
|Rows & rows of bias hem ruffle skater skirts.|
Even if you have good legs, these will
make you look heavy in the hips faster than
you can say bias ruffle hem skater skirt.
|More bias hem ruffle skater skirts. |
Even in black they can't sell them.
|The midi, with gathers at the waist, in white, |
in a rayon which creases like nobody's business.
A well known Sydney blogger wore this.
How would this not sell, I ask? How indeed.
|Take a basic white tee shirt & tart it up with |
fluted petal sleeves to make a buck.
Crimes against basics.
|Grandpa collar shirts with ruffles all over. In pink. |
Who signed off this design? Oh dear.
|Oversize boyfriend jackets in the |
softest least flattering fabric known to man.
You can hide under these. So can your figure.
|My favourite. |
The oversize sweaters. In gold metallic & silver coated.
Something for every complexion.
|I didn't see these in the shop. Thankfully. |
Soft bombers which round your shape.
With a drawstring around your tummy/hips.
Lovin' all that roundness.
In a lary orange. Good oh.
The shapeless dresses. With rounded shoulders.
How could you not look fatter & shorter in this?
That was the look we were going for, wasn't it?
|The interesting dresses. Which no one buys.|
At left, the kaftan-y sleeves - guaranteed
to add bulk up top.
At right, the shift which is armourised with quilting.
|Could be a jacket or a coat. But it'll fit you, |
your family & all your friends. At once.
Gotta love the oversize boxy trend.
|This one surprised me. Navy linen pinstriped trench. |
I thought the finance geeks would be all over it.
It's a bit heavy, otherwise I'm stumped.
|A true treat. Not only oversize, but very soft. |
Will cling to all your lumps & bumps &
show them off with pride.
|Let's assume we all love pink.|
This is a shirt dress which is so fine it
shows everything underneath.
The batwing sleeves are a bonus - guaranteed
to make you look fatter & shorter.
|External shoulder pads on a chambray dress.|
An elastic waist with a one in a million chance
of landing anywhere near your waist.
Are we surprised there are quite a few of these in the photo?
|Zoran called from the 80s & wants his shirt back. |
So much 80s structure for such a soft lame fabric.
|Silk tees with high necklines & oversize |
|Lots of sweats in a boxy batwing sleeve. |
Or is that a dolmain sleeve?
Same thing, one bad weight loss concept.
|Racks of chunky sweaters in|
wool blends but which look 100% acrylic.
Guaranteed to love the clearance sale. Always.
|Boxy shifts. Some even with |
high rounded collars & rounded sleeves.
Otherwise just oversize with hem detail
to bring the eye downward.
If I hadn't seen it...
Don't forget - if it's on the sale rack, it's because no one wants it.
