Color Counts

When it comes to C & C California, I can't help but say si and si!

Pretty much every day is a sale, and free shipping is a frequent perk. What's not to love about cheap, well-constructed basics?

So, I bought a black, spaghetti-strap tank dress for next to nothing and when the price dropped even more a month later, I felt compelled to buy another.

And here begins the cautionary tale. I went for a pale orange. It's a fun, spring-y color. But while the black was sleek, this much lighter color showed off the pooch, VPL and that troublesome gluteal area. It highlighted all the bad stuff.

But it was so crazy cheap, it wasn't worth the $5 shipping to send back. So, I did what any self-conscious girl who can't afford a little lipo would do — I camoflaged.

The army-green Georgie vest hides my pooch and butt and thighs, but lets enough of the sunny color show through. Whew.

Outfit: Georgie vest; C & C California tank dress; Streets ahead cuff; random belt; Dolce Vita wedges.

Great colors. I love a good vest. Perfect cover up. That leopard cuff is awesome.
