I enjoy looking at women in the street, particularly women that is dressed in a fine and flattering business suit, cocktail dress, or casual embellished jeans and T-shirt, with her hair up or curled, applied makeup in radiant natural colors, and a soft popular body spray or eau de perfume, because many women don't make these efforts so these women have more character and care more about tthemselves.

Surprisingly, I felt an affinity with a fashion when I found a group of sleeveless T-shirts with built-in sport bras. First, I had no visible brassiere straps. Second, they provided the support needed to be comfortable whether I was walking or napping, and I knew I would look fantastic because heads turned when I decided to try some of them on.
5. What are some shopping rules you wouldn’t necessarily recommend to others but which you follow?

7. What is the most transformative conversation you have ever had on the subject of fashion or style?
Someone told me that wearing something she expected never to wear made her life exciting when she got bored of her usual styles.

12. Can you say a bit about how your mother’s body and style has been passed down to you, or not?
My mother was small with small bones, almost like her porcelain doll. I have many of her fashions from her estate, especially suits with pants and jackets and formal gowns, but her waist was higher than mine so I can't use her fashions that are fitted at the waist easily.
13. Have you stolen, borrowed or adapted any dressing ideas or actual items from friends or family?
I asked permission to try my younger sister's casual style at a dine and dance instead of a gown as I did usually. She encouraged me to wear her tight, even tighter on me, slim hip height blue jeans and semi-transparent knit hooded sweater with my heeled shiny patent vynil navy blue shoes to a local dine and dance after the birth of my second child. I wanted to see how persons would react, which she thought would be help me become more popular.
14. Was there a point in your life when your style changed dramatically? What happened?
I decided that comfort was as important as being beautiful, so heels could be shorter, didn't need to be stilettos unless they were comfortable and healthy for me during the time that I wore them. Now, I'm shifting to sport wear instead of more formal classical pant or skirt and jacket suits as become more involved in labor, post secondary studies, and traveling with a backpack
15. Is there anything political about the way you dress?
No, but I avoid wearing cultural and religious fashions, because I feel women have adequate subservient, and need to become less dependent, fearful, and more independent. My only exception is jewelry, which has or replicated monetary value.
16. Please describe your body.
I'm short with narrower shoulders than my hips, a typical slightly pear-shape, with about thirty pounds more than my body mass index needs really, so that I avoid clingy clothes, or cover the tight area at my abdomen and buttocks with a hip length slightly looser T-shirt, cardiac, or sport jacket in a similar or coordinating color that correct my appearance.

20. In what way is this stuff important, if at all?
I wear a sleep bra after a reccommendation from my patrician that agreed with my grandmother's instructions to always wear a bra, in bed too, to retain my youth. All my later doctors in the communities where I've lived agreed that this is a practice that all women should do, but few do.
21. With whom do you talk about clothes?
I discuss clothes rarely, and feel that my rules for dressing are the foundations that all persons use for wellness and success, or seek. so, when someone asks me why I ear anything, I feel that their inquiry is a request for information or a consultation.

24. Do you remember the biggest waste of money you ever made on an item of clothing?
I bought some clothes because I expected to lose enough weight to for the garments to fit flatteringly, but my weight remained stable because that is hoe I feel most comfortable, have energy, and have my best progress financially and socially, so I expect am admired.
25. Are there any dressing tricks you’ve invented or learned that make you feel like you’re getting away with something?
The hip length slightly looser top, cardiac, or jacket makes my dimensions appear average and healthy, while hiding my excess weight to the observer, which I know is getting away with an illusion of less weight and good proportions and height because new associations don't guess my excess weight until they see me in a style that allow observation of it directly instead of indirectly.
26. Do you have style in any areas of your life aside from fashion?
I enjoy decor accessories, furnishings, bedspreads with coordinating curtains or beds-in-a-bag so everything matches and coordinates. Natural wood, landscape, fruit, copper, and pioneer themes are my personal favorites. Practicality, savings of costs, and environmental conservation are beautiful to me too, so portable, mini, and space-saving appliances are pleasant for me to experience and see.
