how to wear a denim duster

    Hi Beth, thank you, what an idea you’ve given me. I have a blue denim dress and I never thought of wearing it like you are portraying in your photo’s, x

    Hi Beth,

    I love the wicker handbag you have been seen sporting this spring! I have been on a mission to be more efficient with what I put in my handbag so that I can carry a smaller one. I like to carry a cross body bag (hands free, security while grocery shopping). The problem that I have is that I am – in the words of Jane Russell the Playtex Bra lady – a “full figure gal.” I feel like I look ridiculous with a bag strapped across my chest. Just wondering if you or your readers have had the same problem. Thanks!

      Yes Gloria! I feel the same way when I wear cross body bags. I wish I could find one with longer straps so the bag would hang at a typical location. Being busty, I feel as if the bag doesn’t fall low enough.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      hi gloria! i personally love crossbody bags as they are so functional. sometimes, we just need to be hands free. as far as looking riduculous, i think we can be quite hard on ourselves at times. so give yourself grace. xo

    The demin duster looks nice on you. I think you need to be tall to pull that off.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      hi mary! no, you don’t need to be tall to pull this off. just keep the proportions in line with your height. petite size clothing is made in direct proportion to your body. so i hope you’re shopping in the petite section. xo

    I’ve had good luck with Marc Jacobs bags having longer straps. The Nordstrom website often lists the drop…awesome since a couple of inches makes a big difference.

    I feel the same ladies. I have never liked the look of a strap going across your bust but as an older 70 year old who has found herself having to use a cane, a cross body is the way to go and I just have to try to look as good as I can and feel that the more stylish the handbag is, the better as eyes will be drawn to the bag and not the, in my case, sagging bustline! 🙂

    Nice outfit! That duster would look great in fall/winter with a belt too.

    Beth, I’m 5’4″ so have an aversion to tops that make me look shorter. Will you suggest a length other than duster or long tunics for we shorter gals? Love your site! Thanks for all you do.
