I think they look great - very flattering!
And the aqua shirt looks amazing with your eyes!
Thanks! The aqua shirt was from my friend, so free!
Thanks. I am proud of my pants. :)

I think you look very classy! Wow!
I know what you mean though. If I want something to flow instead of cling to the marsupial pouch I have to go up a couple of sizes too.
Thanks! Yes, I had to swallow my size pride and just get the pants that looked better.

oh puh-lease! you look gorgeous as always :-D
Thank you! I made it thought most the day with slacks,..so far no bad things have happened. :)
Thanks. I'm the bada$$ (of pants) today. :)
My tummy looked really bad in them until I went up 2 sizes. Gotta tell you, it hurt going up in sizes because I'm so phobic, but it turned out ok.
I can't see the marsupial look at all. I think they look great, especially with the asymetrical shirt.
Thanks! The shirt was free from a friend too.
I like them on you! There are different kinds of pants out there for everyone. I find that certain heavier fabrics work better for me than others. The twill not so much but fabrics which have some drape to them are great. I got a wonderful pair of pants from Chicos, and they look so nice on me! NOT cheap though, but I had a gift reciept so it worked.
What do you think, can I wear a knee length leather skirt to work?

They look awesome!
I know how you feel about pants... I feel the same way. I don't think I look good in 'em, but after seeing you in them, I may venture to try again.
Kohl's had a huge selection. I didn't like having to go up sizes to get any to look decent, but oh well. It's just a number.
I think you look wonderful (and I absolutely love the top!) I think the shape of it creates a very flattering look, not 'marsupial' at all. Yay you!
I generally wear slaaaaaaaacks to work because I end up crawling around with cable or something half the time and skirts just don't work out very well for that. (Well, once in my much thinner days I was wearing a shortish skirt, which was probably completely inappropriate for work. I had to walk into a room full of construction guys and hook up a PC under the desk they were working on. One of them actually said to the other "Get your drill out of my back!" I was mortified. This was in my much less confident days! I quit wearing short skirts to work about the same time... LOL!)
That construction story is hilarious! I think construction workers are hot.
Interesting that you have to go up on slacks from jeans. I go DOWN a size from jeans to slacks.
I think it's because while my skin is super compressable (i.e. loose), it looks terrible in slacks because they don't compress. They have to be smooth over the belly.
That's a very pretty outfit! It's tricky, but I was able to find quite a few comfy slacks when I still had a saggy tummy :>)
At Kohl's, I found that the brand "Requirements" was very flattering (and cheap when on sale!)
Love the shirt! And I think the pants look great! I've just been wearing yoga-pants for fear of trying other styles.
Thanks! I am in need of some yoga pants for working out, but so far no luck. Where did you get those?
I'm a little behind in my LJing, but those pants look cute on you! I have to wear slacks for work EVERY flippin' day because we are required to wear some form of hosery, and i can't find nylons/tights that aren't waaaay too big in the crotch area but not tall enough for my legs. Blech.. anyways... :)
You look great, as always :)
Thanks! It's hard to find tights that fit properly. I still have trouble with it, but tend to like the tights at Target ok.
