It was exceptionally hot today in Northern California. I had an event that I I normally wear a suit to, but it was too hot for it, so I thought I’d look for a new outfit. Above you see pictures of some of the clothes I tried on. To be honest, I thought it would be much, much worse. I am now a true 16, not a 16 W. The clothes I picked all fit me–the question was, what fit me best, what suited me, and what suited the situation? The only thing I didn’t photograph was a pair of what turned out to be skinny jeans, which looked ridiculous.

Care to guess what I picked to wear? (Hint, it was a semi-casual dinner…)
