I tried the long sweater with no belt today. I must admit I felt slightly awesome and a little frumpy at the same time. For my body type I should wear belts. Hourglass figures, we curvy kinda gals need the definition so that the curves don't all just blend together and spell LARGE. And at first I almost felt like I was wearing a cape the way it would flap behind me as I walked. Thats it for today...awesome- frumpy-cape-wearing Jodi.
