As I was browsing my newsfeed on Facebook I came across this article in WhoWhatWear that I want to share with you.
The fashion mistakes that every girl should avoid. I want to share this with you because these are the very thing I try to avoid and maybe it will help you, too. Sort of a guideline.
1. An ‘I-only-wear-designer-duds’ attitude.
Who wouldn’t want a closet full of designer clothes. That’s every woman’s dream. But it doesn’t necessarily mean you got it all right. Or it doesn’t necessarily mean you have an impeccable style. Your clothes doesn’t really have to be branded for you to look good.
I can wear Forever 21 or H&M and carry it just as well as the branded ones. Sometimes you can’t even tell the difference anymore.
2. Copying someone else’s exact personal style.
I remember when my kids were still in grade school I used to go to their school everyday to pick them up and hang out with the other Mommies. There was this one particular Mommy that copied me. In the beginning I didn’t notice it but eventually I caught up with her. She copied my style to the point that I got so annoyed.
I got annoyed because the other Mommies noticed it and would tell us we look like twins. Ughhhh, I hated it.
Have your own personal style. Someone might look good wearing a skirt but if you don’t feel comfortable wearing one, then don’t.
3. Wearing shoes you can’t walk in.
I was never a high heels kind of girl. Up to now I cannot walk with heels. It started when I was in high school. I was the tallest in my class and I was so conscious that I was taller than my classmates. So, I only wear flat shoes. Eventually, I never learned how to wear heeled shoes.
The most I wear is kitten heels that I wear on special occasions.
There are some women who insist on wearing heeled shoes and ended up looking funny ’cause they walk like a duck. Not only they walk like a duck I am sure their feet is killing them.
I am all about comfort. If I am not comfortable with what I am wearing then I am never leaving the house. It’s as simple as that.
4. Mixing too many trends at once.
Don’t be a fashion victim or you’ll end up looking ‘trying hard’.
I’m guilty of this. hahaha. I feel naked if I don’t accessorize. I am fond of stacking my bracelets and my necklaces.
If I am wearing a chunky necklace I don’t wear anything else except that. I only stack on bracelets and necklaces if they are small in size.
See. there are ways to go about it. And you get way with it without looking gaudy.
6. Wearing clothes that don’t fit properly.
Different brands have different sizes. If they say size 4 some brands are not exactly size 4. So, you end up buying the wrong size sometimes.
Alteration Plus is everywhere. They have a branch in Power Plant Mall, San Antonio Arcade in Forbes Park and Glorietta.
Make them your bestfriend.
7. Leaving the house with wrinkly clothing.
Since my closet is always over flowing even if the maid irons my clothes before putting it inside my closet it gets wrinkly no matter what.
What I do is, before jumping in the shower I choose already what to wear and while I am in the shower the maid irons my clothes.
So, there. No wrinkly clothes.
Try to follow this guideline and for sure you’ll look fabulous.
Anyway, I went to S&R this afternoon to pick up some groceries. I found my favorite old pair of Levis jeans. I was so happy so I wore it today.
Back in late 90’s up to mid 2000 the only brand of jeans I wear is Levis. I love their fit. It’s as if it was made for me. This one I’m wearing is my favorite pair, Levis 593.
I kinda like it like this. Minus the ‘salon’ blow dry. It looks natural.
