I don’t know how I’d look half the time without my pair of Classic Spanx.  I’m wide-hipped and I wear Spanx with most dresses as it literally sheds pounds off my side once I don them.  Truly.  The pair I have is getting kind of worn, and I’ve been thinking of getting the In-Power Line Super Power Panties for $32.00.  They have “super slimming power,” what more could a girl want?

I took a day off working this week to head to King of Prussia Mall with my friend Jen. She was running late so I spent some time in J Crew checking out some of their new spring line. I tried on a Pencil Skirt and I was reminded how slimming the right Pencil Skirt can be. Watch out for pockets that widen your hips.

This J Crew Denim Pencil Skirt is on sale for $29.99 (normally $69.50).

Miraclebody is known for working some serious slimming magic with their clothes.  I got a pair of Miraclebody Jeans last year at Blogher and I still receive compliments on them when I’m wearing them.

Nordstorm has some on sale – normally $110.00, the Kate Miraclebody jeans are $54.50:

Love this Ruffle Sweater from White House Black Market.  It’s cut long so it covers up the hips and the ruffles and v-neck draw the eye up.  A stylish sweater that’s also slimming.  It’s on sale for $49.99 (normally $88.00) at White House Black Market.
