Fauxbi

Thursday, January 5, 2012 9:32 PM


Every time I've worn this blouse in the three years I've owned it, I've tied the sash in a big bow and positioned it off-center, like so. Until today, when I wrapped it around my waist twice and tied a little knot in the back to form a sort of false obi. A fauxbi, if you will.

I prefer skinny belts because I'm a bit short in the waist, but I think this worked. It's on the narrow side of wide, and it improved an outfit that would have been somewhat secretarial with a bow or no sash at all.
