classytrash 's thoughts:

I’m really short. When people meet me in person, my current co-workers included, they always say “I never knew you were this small!” It’s kind of a confidence buster but also really funny since I feel like I say “I’m really short” all the time and no one believes me. For the record, my driver’s license says I’m 5’2 but I’m not even sure about that.

Anyway, I’m sure there’s a rule about not chopping your outfit up into several different pieces (see: vest, top, shorts, socks, shoes) and rather, to wear a more streamlined look to “elongate” yourself. But whatever, I’ve always believed in dressing comfortably first before following any rules anyone puts forth.

It’s been cold lately in SF (50s & windy blehhh) and it makes me a sad puppy. =(

You really don't look short - your legs look quite lengthy! (Odd compliment, but I mean to say you look great!) <3

You really don't look as mini in photos as you are in real life. You are the cutest little thing <3 I'm with you on ignoring the "rules", otherwise I would never get to wear horizontal stripes, prints and essentially anything other than black. This is such an inspiring example of sick layers...I'm jealz of your skills.

I totally know what you mean about the height thing, photo's can be so decieving. Nice outfit by the way, really liking the vest and how you've paired it with the cardigan the colours go together very nicely.

I agree with annebeth! And yes, i believe it's better to dress for yourself first than for other people's approval. Love this on you.

I think the placement of the camera also helps, you do look tall! I would've guessed your height to be 5'6 at least! great outfit as always :)
