What styles look horrendous on me? How do they fight my body?

September 19, 2012
Straight waist bands -There is at least a 3" difference between my back and front waist.
Capri/Cropped pants -my legs are really short to begin with.
Chest pockets/ Camp shirts -Chest is too full.
Halters -not enough support.

What styles do I wish I could wear?

September 19, 2012
Halter dresses- No support.
Cocktail/ evening dresses- no need, I live in Madison where getting dressed up means pulling out the good fleece!

What garment styles do I love to wear?

September 19, 2012
Cardigans/ jackets- anything to cut up the bulk of my torso.
Pencil skirts- despite being plus-sizeish I have narrow hips and legs.
Any bottom with pockets- I have to recut Eileen Fisher pants anyway, the wider ones I add pockets to also.
Silky Cotton Men's shirts- with the collar popped and the sleeves rolled. I like my very obviously female body with the masculine edge.

What are my Go To outfits?

September 19, 2012
Eileen Fisher Black Crepe Modern Wide leg pants (I added pockets to them, LOVE!)
V or Scoop neck T-shirt long or short sleeve (depending on the temp)
Sweater (Usually a V-neck flat knit or a 'waterfall' type cardigan
Croc ballet flats or dansko clogs
some kind of scarf to give it some texture

I could live in this. I have several different pairs of EF pants in different widths and colors. 
T-shirts could be silk jersey or linen jersey but are usually GAP cotton

What clothing brands do I love? and Why?

September 19, 2012
Gap, Eileen Fisher, J. Crew -Simple lines, good fabrics
Zoran, Uniform dressing, kit of parts approach, luxe fabrics
Alabama Chanin- rich detail, -t shirt feel but OTT decoration

So much of what I like is determined by tactile feel. I love the way a beaded dress hangs on a body, actually carrying the weight of it. There is a sensualness to cashmere and alpaca that soothes me even beyond just the warmth. Even in my writing I end up describing how a character feels in their clothes whether it is a...

September 19, 2012
Boring (being honest here)
Simple
Monotone
Serious
Loose
Random
Soft
Shapeless
Scattered
Dark

This is a little on the harsh side but despite doing this over a month ago I still feel these work. I like to think I would be avant garde but the truth is I could probably be described as preppy eclectic. That is a preppy base that has aspects of (Minimalism, Japanese, Baroque, Punk...) I was asked to describe myself as a color at one point and I said silver because I tend to reflect back what people want to ...
