There are a ton of books out there with lots of information about what to wear and some of the best I’ll review and you can buy right now from the resource page.
These books and TV shows give a lot of good information but when you’re on your own its not quite that simple to put into practice. Which is why I wanted to put together a blog with all the practical information that’s available as well as the opportunity to discuss with others how it’s working out for us.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I’m a writer and researcher and recovering fat chick. I’d like to say that was because I’ve shed 30 pounds but I’m afraid that’s just wishful thinking on my part. It’s more like 10 pounds but it’s enough for me to start feeling better about myself and wanting to reflect that in what I wear. Whenever I daydream about myself I always see myself as being like Sophia Loren, all windswept and interesting and, of course, sexy as all get out.
In reality I look more like John Travolta in Hairspray with lots of big hair and curves that are just this shy of being bulges. I decided that along with my 10 pounds I would ditch my frumpy wardrobe as well and take action toward that sexy, confident person I always picture myself as. Unlike in the past I decided the way to do that was not by dieting and exercising obsessively until I break down and inhale a packet of chocolate cookies in defence, but to dress as if I were an attractive, sexy woman right now.
The real problem in the past has been no idea what to buy. What looks good on me? What should I avoid? What will work with what I already have? I’ve always found clothes shopping to be enormously frustrating. Either the clothes were too small or they just had no … zing. So rather than heading off to the mall for another round of masochistic shopping I decided to do a little research first and make a plan. The added benefit being that with my new found knowledge I might just be able to provide a little help to other.
I hope you join me on this journey to a sexier, more stylish me.
