What happened to Dressember?
It was on but I didn’t do it this year. Have been so busy with training and consulting.
Happy New Year, Imogen —
Tough question since I’m caught up with your archives but often recommend your body shape/color/proportion ones to friends!
Of your 2012 posts, I know I enjoyed your:
* own personal style posts
* Stylish Thoughts Q&A series
* How to Look Taller — Sleeves
* Importance of Placement of Facial Features For Determining Face Shape
* L is for Legs (roundup of leg-related posts)
Thanks for all the tips and tricks!
Without-a-doubt, the most helpful post for me was the one with the color hue test. I got a terrible score but that helped me understand that I cannot see differences in colors. Now I understand why I can never put outfits together. I had my husband take the test and he had a very good score. So he now helps me and he says my outfits look much better.
Mary you must be one of the 1 in 200 women who are colour deficit in their vision. At least it explains why you have such a hard time
Happy New Year Imogen!
I really enjoyed all of your blog posts last year and am looking forward to more gems this year 😉
One of the most useful for me was the post you did on ‘levels of refinement’, because for me it explained why everything in my wardrobe doesn’t go with everything else (which for me as I like quirky and unusual combinations was a big pointer as to why this doesn’t work every time!)
Thank you! It all helps.
Not sure which specific posts most influenced me, but overall, you have had a big influence on how I dress.
– I now wear more dresses and skirts (with leggings and flat boots, nice and casual) which is flattering for my X shape. Look forward to doing more leggings + dress + cardigan like I saw in your photos next summer.
– You got me into wrap dresses.
– I now wear colours and styles that suit my personality (and yes, I do find I let go of some stuff — 5 years ago ‘me’ is not today’s ‘me’).
– I have explored belts and figured out my body hates them.
– I got a bolero that lets me show off the waist.
– No more whiskers or big hip pockets on jeans.
– I wear my scarf ends even because I want to appear wider.
– I know some looks work for me but not others because I am fairly tall (so lots of room to break up vertically) and because I like somewhat quirky proportions.
And so forth! You really helped me to explore and find clothes that I feel comfortable and look good in over the past couple of years. Big thanks!!!
