When I was co hosting the Fashion Team my TV husband Lawrence Zarian use to say to me often, “I think you would look great in a crisp white blouse and a black pencil skirt.” Being from LA for a second I thought he said, Crip’s white blouse, but no, that’s something for gang members.
Always up for a good makeover I bought a black pencil skirt pronto. BTW, LZ does make overs on Kelly Ripa’s show ( I don’t what it’s called now, but she looks so tiny next to the Regis replacement I find it odd), Entertainment Tonight and just about every other syndicated chat show in America. He is the “The Fashion Guy” and I love him, ALTHOUGH he did not send me a review copy his first ever book. “Lawrence Zarian’s 10 commandments for a perfect wardrobe.” I’m sure one of them is a crisp white blouse.
But, with my ample bosom and big ribs the crisp white buttoned blouse often looked slatternly.
I love the tailored look, but the tailored look didn’t love short waisted me. While my ex TV husband did NOT send me a book or a white blouse In Style Essentials did. A fantastic white blouse for the well endowed. It’s a great choice for gals who want to look crisp, professional, classic, but aren’t built like Lauren Bacall. Here is the KEY: you order it based on your BRA SIZE. Because I can be anything from a 4 to a 10 in a blouse. It so depends on how it is cut. This blouse covers my ta- ta’s without pulling.
NOW, my one ding on it is this: I think I need the lower waist measured too. They sent it to me right before Christmas and I looked great. But, after two weeks of holiday parties, eating, treadmill gathering dust it did pull a bit on the muffin bump. But, over all it fit better than other tailored shirts I have tried. I’m a 34D for those keeping track at home. (was not paid for review, but did keep the blouse)
One of my commandments is the spray tan. Takes ten pounds off.
