Makeup remover is a personal thing. Some like it milky, some like it creamy, some like it oily, some don’t clean their makeup off before going to bed…you catch my drift. Disclaimer: I am guilty of the latter from time to time. I know, it’s gross, but I’m lazy.
This pretty much sums it up.
I want to start by saying; this is a very sensitive topic in the blogosphere, or better yet in life. No one likes to talk about money or ask for it, whether it’s in their professional or personal life. I, however, think it’s a sign of immaturity and business amateurity (if that’s a word).
I never thought I would be a fashion blogger. Really. Even though all the signs were there, it’s something I thought I sort of fell into or grew to become.
But the truth is, everything we do has a purpose or a reason in life. And, all our experiences help us get to the next step, whether it be in our career or personal lives.
Looking back, there are 5 telltale signs that I was destined to be a fashion blogger.
- I binge-watched shows like America’s Next Top Model and What Not to Wear. That was my fashion school.
- I had a diary that I wrote in almost every day. Man, I loved that thing!
- I used to collect fashion magazines and create collages for all my school binders!
- I was a shopaholic since I had my first job at 14 years old! I have bought everything I own for myself ever since.
- I was an overachiever in high school: I aced my classes, played sports, had a job after school and on weekend, went to army cadets once a week, babysat on weekends and partied like a rock star!
5 looks for jeans on different body types
Look 1- Apple
Look 2- Tall/Slender
The very long sweater looks its very best on a tall woman and a cropped boyfriend jean alway looks fresh.
Look 3- Petite
Petite women need clothes that are made for their body, and NYDJ does this very well. A boyfriend jean, or copped jean works very well with a heeled bootie and helps to elongate the legs. Having a longer top also helps to elongate the silhouette.
Look 4- Tall/curvy
Tall women with a curvy silhouette look great in a flare jean. The dark wash on the denim is extremely flattering and elegant for this look. Although theses items are standard length, NYDJ does carry a tall specific section on their site.
Look 5- Curvy
Black skinny jeans are flattering for any shape and should be a staple in everyone’s closet. They draw the focus away from the legs and help to elongate the body. Cuffing them over the boot is a playful way to show off the boots as well.
As you know, my specialty is styling larger, plus-size women. This was my first time styling for women with different body types, and I learned a lot! First, I never considered that petite women, need shorter and smaller clothes, not just smaller sizes. It sounds obvious, but I generally have an opposite problem, and would have never considered it, until I experienced it for myself. I now have a different appreciation for the petite selection. I also learned that many thin women, also have trouble finding clothes that suit their body types, and this just reassured me that we are all sort of struggling to work with what we have. I love learning from life experiences and this has brought me a fresh perspective on styling.
At the end of the day, I think it’s important to wear clothes that make us feel great. I typically don’t follow “rules” per se, but I realize that some women need the extra guidance, and that’s what my tips are for. The goal of my segment was to show the wide variety of looks you can create with women of all shapes and sizes.
