For The Fashion Challenged

I am not a fashionista. Far from it. I'm so fashion challenged that I feel dumpy and insecure around certain friends who always look amazing. You know who you are, and I love you anyway. *g*

I was recently directed to a website that may just be my salvation. Missus Smarty Pants is a woman who loves fashion and loves helping women. Via email, she will help you dress for your body type for each season. For what is really a nominal fee. If after reviewing her site, you're not sure what body type you are, she will help you assess that for a slightly, and I do mean slightly, higher fee. Nothing to lose, right? Right.

I've been reviewing her site and I think I'm going to sign up. I need help. I've gained a lot of weight over the past few years and I'm not loving how certain clothes look/fit. And seriously, what I think is adorable my fashion first friends tell me is really really not. *sigh* I'll keep you posted, but honestly, I think this is going to be just what the fashion doctor ordered.


  1. Oooh this shall indeed be an adventure.

  2. Interesting! You'll have to tell me how it is. I don't think I'd take feedback well. Plus, I'm pretty sure someone telling me what to wear would result in a lot of seamstress fees because what looks good on me doesn't actually come in my size. I love the idea though. It's like an online What Not to Wear.
