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.

My Hourglass Fashion Tips

My top four hourglass fashion tips. Many of us curvy girls know that fashion isn't always as easy as it is for thinner ladies out there. For this reason, I have a few fashion tips that I would like to share with all you curvy ladies out there.

Rule number one, if you like chunky jewelry wear it! Small accessories only make things worse when it comes to weight.

Rule number two, big handbags work the same way as big jewelry so try to avoid smaller sized bags. When it comes to clothing, choose darker materials this also includes jeans. This of course means to look for darker jeans. Unfortunately, the lighter jeans are, the more chunky they make you look no matter how cute they are on the hanger.

Rule number three, I would also like to point out that clothes are only part of what people see when they look at you. If you are not comfortable wearing something do not wear it!

Rule number four, You must wear clothing that makes you feel wonderful if you want others to see that wonderful personality of yours! Also remember to dress according to your own personal style. I hope these few fashion tips will help you out in the future and keep you looking sexy as ever!

This is Becca from Florida saying keep on rockin' it fabulous curvy girls!

I Love the advice from this reader. Very honest and straight forward.Thank you, Margaret
