About this look...
I've always had somewhat of a fascination with shoulder pads, even when they were distinctly out of style. I'm not sure where this came from, but if pressed, I'd probably guess it's because I've subconsciously aware of my narrow shoulders and incredibly poor posture. This combo causes the constant slip of bra straps and shoulder bags falling off. Wearing shoulder pads seems to help with the bag strap slippage as well as gives my sloppy shoulders a little boost in appearance.
All of those words to say when I spotted this super cute top with pointy shoulders on Tobi.com, I knew I had to have it.
I tried to cheer myself up with the other goodies I scored, but one of the cute tops ripped at the seams the second I put it on. Such a bummer!
This story does have a more positive ending though! Check out the gorgeous jacket I got! I absolutely love the color, the cut, and the accentuated shoulders! If the weather wasn't so hot right now, I'd probably want to wear it every day!
