Easy fashion sense

So I have always had a hard time figuring out what body shape I have, and what kinds of clothes look best on me, and what colors I should wear, and what size I wear, the list could go on and on. (Yes, I am fashion-illiterate) In some ways that's good, because it means that I am not entirely stuck on myself and my looks, but a person should know the basics, because as Catholic mothers we are really on the front-lines (so to speak) and we need to at least not look like slobs all the time, right?

I was doing some searching online today after watching What Not to Wear (I love that show!) and found this place. You enter your measurements into their templates, and then they not only tell you your body shape, but also your sizes, and you get a little personal shop that they fill with clothes that fit perfectly, and look great on your body as well. *Warning: not all these clothes are completely modest, unfortunately* Some of the clothes on the site are a little pricey, but maybe that is worth it to have something that looks and fits great. Oh! They also tell you which kinds of fabrics you should look for. There are some pretty good articles as well, like what colors look best on you, ect. It's free to sign up and you do all the measurements yourself. I didn't have one of these, so I just used a string for my measurements and then measured the string. It worked for me.

Anyway, for you fellow fashion-illiterates, check it out!
