The Sexy Detail

In my post on French style, I mentioned not forgetting the sexy detail.  I was reminded all over again when I spotted this on The Sartorialist last week:

I’m actually not talking about her legs (amazing, yes).  I’m talking about the t-shirt knotted at the back.  If it weren’t for those pins, your eye would be drawn to that often overlooked, but distinctly sexy body part: the small of her back.  Am I right?

And while I’m on the subject, is there anything in this world sexier than the side boob?

Bahahaha. Side boob always makes me laugh.
I lovelovelove what that woman did to her shirt. I feel like I need to copy this exact look now, although it won't look half as good since I have the legs of a midget. Stupid short legs.

The knot in the back is so sexy. I lost my Sartorialist news feed in google reader and missed a couple weeks' of posts. I'm so glad I figured out what was going on and fixed it! Otherwise, I'd miss little lovelies like this. :)

Nice little knot! Nifty way of shaping a big shirt.

well aren't I lucky to have stumbled upon this post - our Aussie Summer is fast approaching (not fast enough) and I'd love to rock this cute/sexy look - I agree though... side boob IS sexy (so are those girls legs!)

Johnny Depp always said he fell in love with this partner, Fench singer and actress Venessa Paradis, because of her back!

Love these. I noticed the "side boob" one a few weeks ago and loved it. I think only small chested people can pull this off though...any bigger and it would go from sexy to slutty.

Mighty Burns said...

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Seriously to have her legs! It is all about the small things!

WillJogForFood said...

I love the idea of tying up your shirt in the back!

Jess said...

It's funny because that first picture reminds me of how I dressed when I was younger... I loved pinning my shirt back! But she pulls it off well, and it makes me wonder if I should try to pull off this look again :)

Punctuation Mark said...
