Whats your Silhouette? "Figure it out"

With the great response I had to the building a core wardrobe segment, I decided to expand the concept to include several other components such as your body type.(Your silhouette)
For a more detailed analysis, please click here

Everyone, regardless of their size, age, height, or weight has a particular body type silhouette that will very much determine whether a certain clothing style will look flattering on or should be avoided. Determining and understanding the shape of your figure is quite easy but requires honesty with yourself. Knowing and utilizing this fact can help you shop with ease and confidence, chose much more suitable clothing styles, and dress very flatteringly on any budget, from any store or designer. Moreover, this simple knowledge lets you use a unique to your figure shape styling techniques that will improve your overall appearance and accentuate your true beauty.

There are four style principles involved when you are out shopping or getting dressed for the day: fit, proportion, color and personality.

We all have our own likes and dislikes when it comes to fashion and color (everyone knows the image consulting period, when you were told you if you are a winter, spring, fall etc) then what?– and then we find ourselves in a rut. After working in the boutique, I have come to understand that the area most run into problems is when it comes to fit and proportion.

You would be surprised to know that 70% of my clients had a vague idea they were choosing the wrong styles for their body type but did not know how to fix it. That is where this report comes in. Most customers also hide their true personalities. This is social conditioning.
Without fail, within 30 minutes of consultation, a vibrant and fearless personality always emerges. Love it!

I will give a basic run down of these shapes and if you would like more specific info about your body type, please email me at


To pick the right report for you, review the following illustrations to determine the silhouette that is closest to yours.

Hourglass: Shoulders and Hip are equal width, 8-10” difference between bust + waist and hip + waist .
If you have an hourglass shape, you are curvy overall, with a defined waist. Your hips and shoulders are similar width with a medium to large bust. You have fleshy upper arms of average size. Your legs are full at the thighs and rear, while your lower legs are slim and shapely. - think Oprah/Jessica Simpson

Rectangle/Oval/Apple: Shoulders and Hip are equal width, no defined waist (5-6” difference only). If your bust, waist and hips are similar size, then you have an oval, or apple, shape. This shape is also characterized by a small bust, slim arms and legs, an undefined waist, and square hips. Most of the weight is carried in the middle and upper torso. The legs are slender and arms are thin. The bust is larger than the hips are the buttocks are flat. think Rosie O'Donnell/Kate Hudson
