Remember when I asked my guy friends to tell me what they want and don’t want to see a girl wear on a date? One friend simply said: “I don’t like cardigans.” Another said he didn’t like animal print; ergo this cardigan must be a nightmare for men. But wait, there’s more! It’s also studded!!! I’m sure my guy readers are shuddering right now. Who needs birth control when you’ve got a studded cheetah cardi? When I get dressed in the morning I’m not thinking of dressing for boys (most of the time, some occasions do call for lots of cleavage), so I’m going to rock this cardigan confidently until all the studs fall out.

I really love these micro shorts because I think my legs look suuuuuuuper long and even though a big part of this is the photo guys’ doing (read some of my tips on looking good in pictures, e.g. shooting from below) some of it was my conscious choice. See, as I’ve mentioned before, if you have short legs like myself, using those sexy hip-hugging jeans will make your short legs look, well, short. Instead, if you get high-rise bottoms your will trick people into thinking your legs go on for days on end. The comeback of the high-waisted pant was a God sent for me. I wasn’t a big fan of the trend at first, but I converted as soon as I tried my very first pair of high rise jeans. Look at these pictures here and then go look at this other outfit where I’m wearing low-rise jeans. See the difference? Heels help elongate the legs as well. It’s all about the visuals! Another example, check out this outfit where I’m wearing low-rise leggings AND flats. It’s a cute look, but I look a lot leaner in this picture ;)
