1. When do you feel at your most attractive?
1. When do you feel at your most attractive?
When I am confidently being myself. Confidence tends to draw eyes, so generally the people paying attention make me feel most attractive..
2. Do you notice women on the street? If so, what sort of women do you tend to notice or admire?
I tend to notice 'successful' women who hold themselves well - head up and full of confidence.
3. What are some things you admire about how other women present themselves?
I admire the determination in their eyes, the confidence they express and the way they seem so sure about themselves and how they want to live.
I haven't really had that moment, I'm still trying to figure it all out but I think I'm getting there.
I am trying to be more sustainable with what I buy so if I cannot guarantee I will wear it more than once or if I can point out things I do not like about the garment I won't buy it. I refuse to buy anything because it 'might fit me when...'
I dress for my body type which changes from day-to-day. I hide the parts of my body that I don't like that day - whether it's in loose items or overly warm for the season I try to draw the attention away from them.
I have unified my approach to life through minimalism. I am trying to only keep the things in my life that make me feel good and bring me joy while also making tasks more simplistic and less time consuming.
Black ponte pants - I buy at least 2 pairs every year because they are pants that can double for casual and work wear which means they are worn almost every day in the colder months.
Ruffles. I used to be a lot larger than I am now but even so I am not a dainty person. I think ruffles make people, particularly those a little bit heavier, look frumpy.
My Mother's body is a bit larger than mine, so she tends to wear garments that flow. I believe some of the items in my closet may have been chosen due to her influence, I don't really have a lot of tight fitting items.
When I first started dating my partner, we played a lot of golf and he, and his family for that matter, wear a lot of polo shirts and casual button downs. Due to this I started wearing those on a regular basis. Also, because his family is wealthier I also felt the need to dress nicer which meant I have a lot of semi-formal dresses in my closet.
The spring of my last year of University I had to do a complete wardrobe overhaul as I had lost of 20kgs during the winter. I was wearing tighter fitting items compared to my previous loose and a 'few sizes too big' garments.
I don't believe so.
I am of medium/athletic build, currently with a little bit of extra weight around the mid section due to pesky hormones.
My mind is very active. I worry and overthink everything so my current aim is to calm everything down and take it as it comes.
My emotions are generally up beat but they can be subjected to mood swings, when I get terribly low and grumpy. Also anxious and depressed.
I am currently wearing a bralette, underwear and a wrap around dress with a watch on one wrist, a fitbit and a hair tie on the other and my hair is down as it is wet from the shower. No make up.
Friends mostly, unless I'm ranting to my boyfriend about something doesn't fit.
I believe I have a taste but not a distinct style just yet. I believe style is more important because it's how you want to present yourself in terms of the current trends. Someone with taste is generally someone who can buy off the current racks however someone with style generally knows what they want before they go out looking.
I find that I always wear expensive lingerie under my outfit to give me an extra boost of confidence.
My parents always taught me to be practical with my clothing - easy to care for, keeps you dressed for the season etc. However most of the lessons I learnt were learned through working in retail which required it just to be picked up; washing items, folding and storage etc.
Comfort is being within your zone while confidence is reserved for people willing to push the boundaries and be outside their zone.
Very ugly to me is someone who is not happy in their own body for a magnitude of reasons and is not willing to take the steps to make themselves happier. Its also someone who looks down on people based on their socio-economic status, fashion-style, body shape and personal circumstance.
My daily dressing process generally revolves around what the weather and temperature are going to be like and how I'm feeling. If I am upbeat and energetic I tend to dress 'warmer', if I am tired and lethargic I tend to dress 'colder' and more comfortable.
I conform to the expectation of the workplace by dressing corporately for the office however, by doing this I rebel agains the dress expectations of everyone else who is a lot more casual.
I often find it comforting to have a uniform that way your work clothes and daily clothes/formal clothes are not merged.
I think perfume is lovely when used in small quantities, in the sweet spots - so neck and wrists.
Most valuable items that I have purchased were most likely accessories like bags and shoes.
I would attempt to make it more of a capsule wardrobe, so that I don't spend hours on end staring into it thinking I have nothing to wear.
I bought myself a Louis Vuitton handbag three years ago and I still have it and use it everyday.
I like everything to be clean and neat although my underwear drawer will forever be a mess.
I usually shop around online, bookmarking items then go back through it and think about when, where and how often I would wear the item. Generally the list is whittled down to two or three items and more often they look better in the picture so they get sent back. In the even that I buy clothes from a store it's generally because I have outgrown something or am looking for something in particular.
I wear a watch everyday.
