shopping tips
Shopping tip 101 Shopping tip One of the best ways to stay focused while shopping is to take a picture with you out of one of your favorite magazines. If you take an image with you, not only will it help you and a sales staff to pull together the look you want, but it will also help you stay focused on what you came to the store for in the first place as well as save money.
Source your magazines-meaning pull out the information that inspires you, put it in a binder and recycle the rest. I started doing this when I was in college and it has been a lot of fun. It also saves time and space.


t-shirt bra
I love womens shoes. I have no idea why I love them as much as I do. It is a true obsession.

All the girls in my family seemed to be afflicted with it, thought some have it more then others.

I thought for the longest it was some weird little oddity that only my family had.

Body Types

Regardless of height or percentage of fat, there are really only 4 basic silhouettes, any variations are really just the details on the four. Before you measure your body, get fitted for a new bra. Nine out of ten women do not wear the right bra size.

I started out at Nordstrom in the lingerie department I was told nine out of ten women did not wear the right bra size, I didn’t believe it. To my surprised this fact is really true. So, get a good bra, a good foundation can make or break your silhouette.

Once you have been fitted, measure yourself at the widest part of your breast (across the nipples) with your bra on. Then measure your waist at its smallest and your hips at their widest.

Four basic Silhouettes Are

Top Heavy, Bottom Heavy, Hourglass, Rectangular Here are a brief discriptions of the four body types

This figure has the top and bottom about the same as each other and a well-defined waistline, at least 9" less then the hips and breast. Women that have this silhouette often gain weight in their upper and lower half first.
