Do You Know What You Should Wear For An Hourglass Body?

With Spring arriving you might be looking at your wardrobe and thinking ‘Time for something new!’  It’s clear that certain styles create a more flattering look for each body type and today I’ll focus on items that work well for an hourglass-shape body.  There are some great prices now, so you might want to do a little online shopping too :->

Scoop Neckline Tie Waist Top

New Directions® - New Directions Plus Size Scoop Neckline Tie Waist Top

New Directions® – New Directions Plus Size Scoop Neckline Tie Waist Top – $24.00, 9.50 shipping – Available at Belk.com

If you are a jeans and t-shirt girl (that’s pretty much me) the flair of the tie waist will give a little oomph to your look.  Relaxed and a touch of ‘Yeah, I’m sassing it up today’.

 

Wrap Cardigan Sweater

Rafaella - Women's Multi Wrap Cardigan Sweater, Charcoal Tweed Heather, Large

Rafaella – Women’s Multi Wrap Cardigan Sweater, Charcoal Tweed Heather, Large – $30.79, 5.48 shipping – Available at Amazon.com

Along with my typical jeans and t-shirt look you’ll most likely see me in a cardigan.  With warmer weather approaching something light weight is in order.  I need (a.k.a.want wink) to get this!  Add a belt to really show off your waist.

 

Mid Rise Skinny Denim Jeans

Levi's - Mid Rise Skinny Denim Jeans For Women Night Fall 16

Levi’s – Mid Rise Skinny Denim Jeans For Women Night Fall 16 – $35.88, 8.95 shipping – Available at Cabelas

Levi’s.  Ah yes, the classic denim.  And thank you for this Mid Rise! (That low rise?! Ugh, don’t get me started.)

 

Fitted Blazer

Joie - Women's Neville French Terry Fitted Blazer - Soft Joie - Dark heather gray (LARGE)

Joie – Women’s Neville French Terry Fitted Blazer – Soft Joie – Dark heather gray (LARGE) – $178.00, 13.50 shipping – Available at Neiman Marcus

Hourglass shapes should have the top article of clothing come in at the waist to avoid a boxy look. And you can’t go wrong adding a blazer to your wardrobe.  Use it as your lightweight jacket, pair it with a scarf.  This look goes great with jeans or a long, floral skirt.

 

Mid Rise Skinny Jean

7 for All Mankind - Women's Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans, Cranberry - 7 For All Mankind - Cranberry (26)

 

Fitted Jacket With Buttoned Cuffs

La Redoute - Womens Pure Linen Slightly Fitted Jacket With Buttoned Cuffs

La Redoute – Womens Pure Linen Slightly Fitted Jacket With Buttoned Cuffs – $46.79, 4.99 shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace

Spring and Summer is the time to wear linen.  Definitely brings denim shorts up a couple of notches.

 

V Neck Mini Dress

Amoin - Amoin Women V Neck Multilayer Stripe Splicing Bodycon Pencil Mini Dress [A6030],Blue,XX-Larg

Amoin – Amoin Women V Neck Multilayer Stripe Splicing Bodycon Pencil Mini Dress [A6030],Blue,XX-Large – $10.70, Free shipping – Available at Amazon.com Marketplace

There will be no guessing about your figure in this hourglass flattering design!

 

Long Wrap cardigan

Soma Intimates - Melange Button Front Long Wrap

Soma Intimates – Melange Button Front Long Wrap – $44.99, 5.95 shipping – Available at Soma Intimates

This wrap has a nice benefit of having a button closure, draping nicely.

28-Day Bloggers Challenge 3 Week Update- Ann Again and again Reviews

Blogger 28 Day ProSkin Slim Legging Challenge - Ann Again and again Reviews

I seem to have hit a stalemate with my numbers this week.  This is week number 3 of wearing Proskin Slim Leggings – for at least 8 hours a day – and my numbers have not changed since last week.  Currently I am:

Measurements as of 10/24/2013:

  • Hips:  42 inches
  • Top of Thigh:  26 1/2 inches
  • Above Knee:  17 1/4
  • Below Knee:  14
  • Widest part of Calf:  15 inches

My most surprising results came after just the first week.  (Visit:  ProSkin Slim Leggings 28-Day Challenge First Week Results).  I have noticed that my skin feels softer, which is nice in these chilly Fall days when my skin tends to get dry and itchy.  I haven’t been using lotion on my legs during my challenge to make sure I don’t interfere with the ingredients of the micro-encapsulated yarn used to create the Proskin Slim Leggings.

ProSkin Slim Legging 28 Day Bloggers Challenge Ann Again and again Reviews
Dear Model, a little smile wouldn’t hurt now, would it?

The Slim leggings are so light, so easy to move in, that wearing them during any exercise, including yoga, makes for unrestricted movement in any squat, lunge or down ward dog your trainer calls for.  They have helped keep my legs cool while exercising, which is a plus for me because these days I’m “enjoying” waves of heat even when I’m standing still!  Ah, isn’t getting old fun? :->

2 Week Update For Proskin Slim Leggings 28-Day Bloggers Challenge

Proskin slim leggings 2 week update on Bloggers Challenge - Ann Again and again Reviews

Blogger 28 Day ProSkin Slim Legging Challenge - Ann Again and again Reviews

Here I am, on week two of my Proskin Slim Leggings 28-Day Bloggers Challenge. As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts these leggings are incredibly comfortable to wear so the “challenge” of wearing them for 8 hours a day is easy-peasy. These leggings are not a tight, spandexy kind of fabric, they are a soft, somewhat cool material that is very easy to move in and so thin they wear sleekly under jeans and even yoga pants. They are easy to clean and dry over night by rolling in a towel and hanging to dry.

Here are my numbers –

First week – Measurements as of 10/2/2013:

  • Hips: 44 inches
  • Top of Thigh: 27 1/2 inches
  • Above Knee: 18 1/2 inches
  • Below Knee: 14 1/4 inches
  • Widest part of Calf: 16 inches

Today – Measurements as of 10/17/2013:

  • Hips: 42 inches
  • Top of Thigh: 26 1/2 inches
  • Above Knee: 17 1/4
  • Below Knee: 14
  • Widest part of Calf: 15 inches

To see my measurements after the first week check out my post “Proskins Slim Leggings 28-Day Challenge First Week Update“.

She should look happier – just sayin’. If I were that size I know I’d be smiling!

How Slim by Proskins works:

Slim by Proskins use advanced technology fabric to ensure function, innovation and versatility.

COMPRESION FABRIC – A controlled level of pressure promotes blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, flushing fluid and toxins which would cause cellulite out of the body. The appearance of cellulite is reduced, giving a more even skin tone through the strengthening of connective tissues in the legs, buttocks and hips.

PATENTED MICRO-ENCAPSULATED YARN – The fabric is impregnated with micro-capsules containing the finest active natural ingredients. These are massaged into the skin during wear, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth. The micro-capsules in the fabric are guaranteed to remain in the fabric for at least 100 washes.

What the micro-capsules contain:

  • Caffeine: A renowned active slimming agent that activates micro-circulation and promotes fat destruction.
  • Retinol: A skin regenerator which stimulates collagen, giving a youthful appearance.
  • Vitamin E: An antioxidant that helps the skin appear young and fresh.
  • Aloe Vera: A plant extract that makes the skin feel smoother and softer.
  • Ceramides: Restores the skin’s barrier system providing immediate tensor effect.
  • Fatty Acids: Natural ingredients existing in our skin. They are the perfcet vehicles to improve the penetration of the rest of the active ingredients into the skin.

Other Features:

MOISTURE MANAGEMENT: Keeps the body cool, dry and comfortable throughout the day.

ACTIVE MICRO-CLIMATE: Body temperature is regulated to 37°C (98.6°F). Making the garments perfect for wear all through the year.

SILVER ANTI-BACTERIAL TREATMENT: Keeps fabric clean and odor free for extended wear and improved garment lifetime.

ProSkin Slim Legging Blogger 28 Day Challenge Ann Again and again Reviews

To be completely honest I’m not really sure what’s going on here. I’m finished with my first week of the ProSkin 28 Day Blogger Challenge wearing ProSkin Slim Leggings for at least 8 hours a day and I have actually lost inches. I haven’t changed my exercise routine, I haven’t changed my eating habits, the only change in my last 7 days has been wearing ProSkin Slim Leggings for 8 hours a day. This is really surprising!

Last weeks measurements 10/2/2013:

  • Hips: 44 inches
  • Top of Thigh: 27 1/2 inches
  • Above Knee: 18 1/2 inches
  • Below Knee: 14 1/4 inches
  • Widest part of Calf: 16 inches

Measurements as of 10/10/2013:

  • Hips: 42 inches
  • Top of Thigh: 27 inches
  • Above Knee: 17 1/2
  • Below Knee: 14
  • Widest part of Calf: 15 inches

I measured twice just to make sure.

These leggings are incredibly comfortable and I’ve found them to be so thin that I can wear them under jeans without any discomfort. They look like fashion tights and would be a perfect accessory under a long tunic, or a favorite long Fall sweater, matched with tall boots or ankle boots. They would also look great under a maxi dress or yoga skirt.

Blogger 28 Day ProSkin Slim Legging Challenge - Ann Again and again Reviews

Here’s where I stand, I’m in my mid-Forties, my metabolism has changed, along with my hormones, and keeping my body in shape is harder then before.  The magazine articles I’ve been reading for years, as if to prepare myself for this change, haven’t prepared my mind for how I’d feel about this actually happening to me.   It sucks!  There, I said it.  But hey, who wants to wallow?  I don’t.  I’m going to keep doing the best I can to feel and look the best I can and be grateful I’ve made it this far!   I’m going to keep up the exercise and I’m going to do it while participating in the Blogger ProSkin Slim Leggings 28 Day challenge.  And I welcome you to take the challenge with me!

The ProSkin Slim line of active wear has studies that show results in the areas of cellulite reduction and lost inches from thighs and hips.   I’m ready for some of that!   From the ProSkin site, “How it works”:

  •  Helps reduce the appearance of cellulite
  • Improves lymphatic drainage
  • Helps tone and moisturize the skin leaving it soft and smooth
  • Improves circulations
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Reduce fluid retention
  • Regulates body temperature

  • Above Knee:  18 1/2 inches
  • Below Knee:  14 1/4 inches
  • Widest part of Calf:  16 inches

When I first pulled on these leggings I could not believe how light-weight they were.  They are incredibly soft and are easy to move in, not confining at all.  The challenge requires you to wear them for 8 hours a day and they are so thin that wearing them under my jeans is not an issue.  They are so comfortable! I’m completely surprised.

I live in a well known grey part of the Pacific Northwest, Portland, OR.  However, the sun does shine here, especially in the summer time, and that is when I find sunglasses to be a necessity.  Maybe it’s because it doesn’t shine as often that my eyes aren’t used to it’s powerful glare?  Or, it’s a big ball of light and it’s bright!  Whatever the reason, when I’m heading out I make sure to have my sunglasses.  My little blond haired/blue-eyed Lily definitely needs sunglasses however, for her they are the prescription sunglasses.  She’s my little fashionista so they need to be extra flashy.  I’ve found great styles at Firmoo.com.

Let's Have A Party! Target Has Opened In Downtown Portland

Ann Again and again Reviews City Target Downtown Portland Opening

Ann Again and again Reviews City Target Downtown Portland

Tuesday, July 23rd the much anticipated City Target store in Downtown Portland held a party to celebrate it’s completion. Located in the historical Galleria building on 10th and Morrison, City Target will serve the 90,000 people who work downtown and the 12,000 residents who call downtown their home. A wonderful benefit is that it will employ over 200 people.

The party was lively and loud and I can not believe how my pictures don’t show how many people were there! My lens was focused, for sure. (It was packed.) Delicious, tasty offerings from Voodoo Donut (Maple w/ a slice of Bacon Donuts, mmmmm) Kenny & Zuke’s Deli, Saint Cupcake to name a few. Lively libations from local wineries and breweries and a band – Fort Atlantic – representing The Doug Fir lounge.

As my mom and I walked through the two floors of City Target my mind was reeling with memories of what The Galleria used to look like. I worked on the second floor, at a lovely store called Pacific Arts, for four years. During the time I worked at this store I met a man named Rob Harrison, and my life changed. (We’ve now been married for 20 years.) Yes, this building holds many memories for me.

Bullseye was there having her picture taken, all the while adorned with a shiny pink, rhinestone encrusted, collar. It was a tremendous party to welcome Target to downtown Portland.

(Since I’m still getting used to my WordPress.org home I’m going to share the pics I have in this slideshow. And once I figure out how to add captions I definitely will. So much to learn!)
