Nifty Thrifty Style - Step 1

Where to begin?  I guess, I need to figure out what my body type is.  I took an online test....I'm a pear.  Other pears include Beyonce', Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Clarkson, Kim Kardasian...how in the world, is knowing that helpful!!

So, I googled..."I'm a fat pear, what do I wear?"  Believe it or not, images came up.   These are a few that I liked.

I really like the vintage styles too...

Try a pretty blue frock this Valentine's Day for something different! <3:



Sean Top in Gold Poplin - This versatile short sleeve blouse will electrify your office attire with its unique seaming, cuffed sleeves, and stand up collar. Features a cross-over and darted bust and an inverted back zipper (just like our Doris top) for a sexy, fitted silhouette and the art deco feel of the Laura Byrnes collection. Ideal for smaller bust lines; for the very busty, youll want to size up.:





I found this link very helpful:  http://www.thechicfashionista.com/pear-body-shape.html

Pear shapes need to accent their tops to balance out their bottoms.  Pears, even full figured pears, have a smaller waist and need to draw attention to their smallest area.  Pears may wear fit and flare, pencil skirts, flirty bottoms in dresses and skirts.  Pears should select dark blues, grays, blacks and browns in pants with a flare hem to draw attention away from  their hips.  Basically, a pear should enhance and minimize - we want to show the illusion of an hour glass shape.  

Researching for this post, it became pretty clear to me that the outfits I tend to get the most compliments on, follow these rules.  I have several items that don't follow the guidelines to accent my shape.  I was planning to clean out my closet anyway, learning these tips will make it easier for me to do so.  That will be my next step.  And hey, I have some vintage high waisted "mom" jeans that just might end up on etsy!  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
