Confession Time: I sometimes dress like a grandma. And I look good when I do it.
Seriously, though. Lately, I’ve been reviewing my fashion sense and I’ve found it a bit…lacking.
One of my friends has an amazing sense of style. She models and creates these gorgeous outfits. Like so.
If you want to see more awesome concepts and pictures, go to her website here.
I know my body type looks nothing like hers, so I don’t know how I can adopt it to my own fashion sense.
But…I don’t really like my fashion sense. It feels old, and outdated, and it doesn’t really feel like me anymore. But how do I fix it? I know I can’t go about changing my wardrobe until I have money (which will take a little while) but, how does one go about finding a completely different fashion sense that fits who they are? I think I need a makeover or something.
So now I am turning to you readers for help. I don’t mean this to sound callous or conceited in anyway, but clothes and image are important. If I don’t feel like myself in what I am wearing, then how am I supposed to act myself and confide in who I am?
A lot of the clothes I like I feel do not fit with my body type.
Leggings are awesome, but I feel exposed in them. I have a lot of curves, and what I have found that works with my body type looks more like this.
Like a hippie who has to wear their pants up to their belly button. It makes my stomach stick out less, but makes fashion difficult.
A lot of clothes are made for women with flat tummies. I am not one of those women.
What do I do?
That image has become so idealized, the flat stomach and thin body, even by people who don’t really buy into the status quo, that I feel like I don’t really belong. Even though people tell me otherwise, I feel too big and like my body shape is wrong.
I try to flaunt it, but…having clothes I don’t feel comfortable in makes it worse.
What about you readers? Do you have this problem, or a way to combat it? Or do you have any fashion tips for a curvy lady that don’t look hippie-ish?
