This weeks assignment was rating shapes. There were no surprises on my worksheet since I know what I want to look like (even if I don't actually.) I like the hourglass look or the X shape as Imogen calls it. I am not very tall, and my hips are not narrow and my bust and shoulder are proportionate to my hips. So it is very easy for me to appear short and squat and frumpy. I do not want to appear to be any of those things.
In general I like fairly fitted clothes. I like slim tops and fuller skirts. I like skirts above knee length or shorter unless it is a maxi. I love the look of midi skirts on other people. I like 3/4 sleeve or 1/2 sleeve tops the best. Despite the fact that they aren't easy for me to pull off I love a wide leg pant when I manage to make it work. I like the 1930s feel of that type of pant. Usually though a boot cut or flare is going to work better for me. I like a super slim clam digger though for summer. No matter what I am wearing I like my waist to be visible. The 1920s/1960s non-waisted just fails. I end up looking like a twin popsicle with two skinny sticks sticking out at the bottom.
It was difficult coming up with strong feelings about most of the items on the worksheet because so many things can work when balanced out with the right outfit. But it is done. On to week 4.
