Dressing Your Truth. I've aways hated shopping. I hated trying things on. I never new what to pick. That is common with Type 3. Often stylish ruffles and girl things make us look frumpy. Circle patterns are big now and that's something I look terrible in.I am loving DYT,
This first brown shirt with lots of angles is one I would of never picked before DYT. I actually feel very comfortable in it. I got at at an outlet sale. I've been trying to take lots of photos, to be honest with myself how I look in things (not cause I am vain). If I absolutely can't get a good photo, it's a big hint, that it's probably not my type. But something else bothered me in this first photo and it took a while to figure it out. But now I realize I look much better with letting my hair go. You can see the progress in these photos. For years I tried to wear it a perfect blunt-- that's for another type. Sometimes I tried to curl the ends under--that's yet, for another type. Believe it or not I thought I had supper straight hair. Now I know the truth -- my hair has a mind of it's own, just like I do. Somedays it's kind of curly and fun. Somedays naturally it's messy and wild. Now, I am just letting it go with a little gel for support. I don't dry or spend time curling under. I like feeling my hair move. And it's not not straight like I thought; thin and fine, but not straight. (Also, colored, but not gray!) I also learned how to make it straight and right for me.
I ventured out to a similar colored, but totally different vement than the first, also from Beall's OUTLET. I like the criss-cross and the randomness. I am getting a sense for my secondary type.
I like 3/4 lengths sleeves, like I wrote in a previous post, but it is hot here. I like short sleeves, now.
It has seemed like I have finally found the right kind of pants for me. I like the brown's and bone colored as a base. I prefer a fabric that has movement (like wide at my ankles). I've always hated jeans. "Bone" is my jeans. And since it's bone, I can wear it to the office. We have a rule at the office "no jeans" shhh-- don't tell anyone I am wearing "my jeans" all the time to the office. My jeans are purchased from Marshalls. The other 2 pants were from Chico's. I lucked out as it was right before DYT. I have a feeling I'll find real denims soon using DYT guidance.
Over the past three months of DYT, I wanted more variety in color. I have succeeded.
