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.

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.

Womens Skirts

It’s amazing how different they can be made to look by something as simple as changing the length, fit or fabric. They can look dramatically different just by the other pieces of clothing and accessories you choose to pair up with it.

A few basic silhouettes: straight, round and triangle and from these basic shapes comes in endless styles and designs. And, added to those styles are density of fabric and length and voila we have more styles  then we know what to do with. So to make this easy, lets focus on the truly basic types. These basic types come in five styles. These styles are known by  different names with some variations of styles.

The five styles are: A-line, Pencil, Circle, Pleated and Wrap. Let’s explore the different ones and the best ones for your body type

Hobble Skirt

A hobble  is probably the sexiest skirt around. It is a form fitting skirt that is very narrow at the hemline and usually lands somewhere between the lower part of your calf and your toes. A pencil  is a later variation of the hobble . The hobble  got its name because, women had to hobble in them.

The Pencil Skirt

A pencil also known as a sheath, straight and sometimes a stovepipe, though stovepipes are truly straight from the hips down. A pencil hugs your waist and hips and depending upon the variation tapers gently at your knees often with a slit on the side, back or front to make walking easier.

Depending on how tapered it is, it can really show off your shape. It can help create a waistline if you don't have a defined one like women who have a rectangular shaped body. And it is an excellent choice for curvy women who are proud of their curves and want to show them off.  How to choose a pencil for your body type?

Top Heavy Body Types & Rectangular Body Types

The best pencil for you are those that have detail like flap pockets or patch pockets to accentuate your hips while also creating balance with your top half.  If you’re a minimalist or like classic chic clothing with very little detail, then look for a simple pencil skirt made of fabric that has some texture or attention-grabbing designs.

Bottom Heavy Body Type

The pencil  is a little trickier to find for this body type. Unlike an a-line, pencils have a tendency to accentuate your body because their meant to hug the hips.

If you really love this one then look for one that is unadorned and comes in a solid color with no pockets and a flat waistband. Choose one the fits your hips and have the waist taken in for the best fit. Also look for one with Lycra in it or choose a knit.

Curvy Body Types

I think a pencil was made for your body type in mind.  The biggest challenge you’ll have is fitting your hips and waist, so concentrate on fitting your hips and if necessary have the waist brought in.

Depending on the your style you can choose to accentuate your hips or minimize them. To minimize them follow the advice given for bottom heavy body types and to accentuate them read the information for top-heavy body types.
