Caked On

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

Cake is delicious.

This top would be remarkably unflattering on me. It has thin stripes that would get all stretched out from my boobs, making it look like deformed rock layers. The poufy tiers would make the rest of my body look massive. Maybe it's just me, but whenever I see tiers on a top, it reminds me of a torso tutu. And while yes, my upper body would love to look like a pretty ballerina, it will end with my resembling a dancing hippo from Fantasia.

It's too bad - I love the fabric used for the tiers. If they had used that fabric to make a cute silk button-down top, with puffy sleeves and maybe a little ruffled bib, I'd actually be all over it. Oh well. It lives on in my mind.

  1. Plus they're bubble hemmed tiers. That makes them about a thousand times more unflattering.

  2. Yeah, I was going to mention that, but I wasn't sure if they were bubble hemmed. Really bad.

  3. Mmmmm, cake.

    Thank you, Amanda. You've ruined me for at least the weekend!

    I want cake now. It will be all I think about until AT LEAST Monday.

  4. @ Izalika: Sorry. Although, why would you wait until Monday for cake?

  5. Haha as if I would wait. See, my theory is that weekends are cake time (don't be fooled though...that theory applies to anything really. "Breakfast is over? Cake time!) and so I will just keep wanting cake until the busyness of the week kicks in and has me thinking about organic chemistry instead. Which, incidentally, is nowhere near as good as cake is.
