Ways to Look 10 Pounds Lighter Today: Tip #3

Happy weekend  peeps! I hope this finds you enjoying your weekend and psyched once again to look 10 pounds lighter instantly! This is one of those tips that will work for anyone regardless of your weight. And fellow short girls, you’re going to love this tip!

Tip#3: Find That Hidden Wedge.

The Hidden Wedge? What am I talking about? Well, last year I was looking at pair of Uggs for our annual holiday trip to Jackson Hole and kept thinking how dumpy I looked in them. Then I happened upon a pair online that had a hidden wedge (and a zipper ~ha!) and thought why not?

I’m not exaggerating when my women friends kept saying “Have you lost weight?” That comment was usually followed by “Your legs look so long; what have you been doing to workout?” Even my “Pilates Possy” kept asking me what I was doing and where they could get them! I wore them so much that I literally wore them out. Hence, no picture and unfortunately, Uggs no longer makes them. 😦

Not to be deterred,  I’ve combed the web and  curated 3 different pairs of hidden wedges for you that can be on your doorstep next week. Each are spectacular in their own right (and they don’t cost as much).

1. Nine West Tall Boot:

2. Enzo Tall Boot :

3. ANNA Ankle Bootie:

  
http://amzn.to/1K0dsdY  We all know that ankle booties are everywhere this season and this might be my favorite of the season.They are faux leather and have a rubber sole so no stains or slipping.  And that clasp! I swear it  makes it look like they are made by  Givenchy or Celine! I’m thinking of ordering these in black and brown as I know they will go fast!

I’d love to hear your thoughts below  and see you in a picture of  hidden wedges looking ever so tall and lean.

And always remember ~ You’re Never Stuck!

Ways To Look 10 Pounds Lighter Today: Tip#1

Recently I tweeted from @youreneverstuck  asking folks to direct message me about where they feel most stuck. For many of us +40 women, the resounding message was- my weight! So without joining the masses who tell you what you should or shouldn’t eat/drink/exercise, this short fashion post is for you!

Tip #1: Make it monochromatic.

Trust me, from someone who’s “blessed” with a short waist, this little fashion trick does wonders.

Note that it needn’t all black either. Pick your favorite color and it needn’t be tucked in. An added bonus in monochromatic dressing is that it also looks expensive.  Here are a few favorite looks:


 

Yes, all these models are annoyingly skinny.  (Sorry about that! ) However, notice the monochromatic look also makes them look taller, leaner and polished.

Give it a try, let me know how you do and/or send me a picture!

With Love,

Patty Comeford Adams 

  
ps. To get the full effect, I recommend your shoes are the same color ( unless your wearing a cast 😈)  The eye will grasp it all as one;  making you look well …10 pounds lighter!
