Shake What Your Mama Gave You

I love the confident attitude of the Curves Rule and Flat is Fabulous authors. 

For instance, I LOVE my collarbones!  On the weekends, I live in drapey V-neck tees to show it off.

What’s your favorite figure “flaunt” and how do you dress it?

Get By with a Little Help from Your Friends

Sunday’s video introduced the first step to creating a B.A.S.E. wardrobe.  One of the resources mentioned in the video is Bradley Bayou’s book, The Science of Sexy, which outlines style guidelines for different body types.

You might think that following certain guidelines for building a wardrobe would cramp your  style (no pun intended), but in reality, it is really freeing in so many ways.  By understanding what styles flatter your body, you’ll gain the confidence to invest in some really fantastic pieces that you can rely on day-in and day-out for years to come, while still incorporating seasonal trends (more on that later).  You’ll be able to get dressed in a nanosecond (well, almost a nanosecond) and still walk out the door looking great!

It seems that all of us have at least one favorite piece in our wardrobe that we consistently rely on; wouldn’t you love to have a closet full of them? 

Currently, my most faithful friend is a camel blazer with cropped sleeves–what’s yours?

Sexy Really is a Science

Apparently Bradley Bayou isn’t the only believer in the science of fashion.  Check out this quote from today’s article in Fast Company about Stacy London’s new venture, Style for Hire:

“Style is teachable,” London tells Fast Company. Her own approach involves examining the geometry of an individual’s body and selecting cuts and styles that play up the assets and minimize the problem areas. “A lot of people think this is about instinct, and you have to have some taste level,” she says. “But we believe very much in the science of styling.”
