PERSONAL STYLE 101

PERSONAL STYLE 101

Dope Notes

(To keep in mind!)

Start A Look Book

Think back to EVERY TIME you wore an outfit that YOU picked that you also looked DAMN GOOD in? Keep Note of this. You're going to need it in the next step.

STEP ONE:

DESIRE

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

Want what you want, period.  Your "desire" is a great place to begin your personal style journey because SO OFTEN our style is influence by everything in our lives BUT us.  Think about it.  Your location affects your wardrobe.  Your profession affects your wardrobe.  Your family history affects your wardrobe.  Your well-being affects your wardrobe. Now go back and count how many items we just listed and consider that MOST OF US consider ALL THOSE THINGS before we even THINK about what we DESIRE and that's why this is Step One.

*Practice being honest with yourself. It's your world.  What image resonates with you? What colors? Textures? Keep an open mind, Cutie!

STEP TWO:

VISUAL INTEGRITY

PERCEPTION VS. REALITY

*Again. Practice being honest with yourself about what you think looks good on you VERSUS what ACTUALLY looks good on you in real life and be open to leaning toward clothing that looks good on you.

Depending upon your upbringing, this may make you feel uncomfortable and we want you to know that this feeling is okay!  The disconnect between what we desire and what makes us desirable is difficult for many people due to the distance between 'perception' vs 'reality.'  Sometimes what we PERCEIVE will. look good on us turns out to look terrible in REALITY.  Many people don't want to admit that and this is where fashion faux pas' are born.  Be honest.  How many times have you seen a SUPER CUTE outfit that you HAD to try on and as soon as you try it on you immediately want to take it off?  That disconnect is an example of 'perception' versus 'reality.'  Your 'perception' of the outfit did not match the 'reality' of how that outfit looked on you.

(To keep in mind!)

WHAT IS 'DRESS SIZE?'

Do you seize up in fear when someone asks 'What's your dress size?" Don't worry. It's an easy find. Your 'Dress size' is the measurements of your bust, waist, and hip. Your bust can be found in the number part of your bra size. So if you're a 34D, your 'bust' size is (probably) 34 inches. If you want to be sure, you can visit a lingerie store like Victoria Secret to get your professional bra size for free. Do your research and see what businesses offer such services.

Take It Personal!

We cannot stress this enough. This is about YOU! Is comfort important? Include that! Do bold colors matter? INCLUDE that! Are you on a budget? INCLUDE THAT! SO MUCH FASHION is created out of need so embrace where you are and get to creating your style, Cutie!

STEP THREE:

PERSONAL AESTHETICS

HOW DO YOU APPROACH BEAUTY?

Your Personal Aesthetic is found in how you approach your own beautification.  Have you ever heard the statement 'I clean up nicely?'  That's something someone who otherwise dresses casual switches things up and dresses to impress.  Your approach to your style is what makes that style PERSONAL so this part is important.

*Your approach is what makes your style 'personal' so don't skip this part.

APPLICATION

Elementary school conditions us that 'THE TEST' is the most important part of the learning process. Here at Cutie Booty Media, INC. we believe that the magic happens when you apply what you learn. Think about it. Think about a time where application of theory is important in your life. What do you expect from people in your life when you tell them about your needs. How would you feel if they failed to 'apply' the knowledge you shared with them and continued on ignoring your needs. How would that make you feel? Now you understand the importance of 'application.' In Cuties Classes, the 'test' is whether or not you will 'apply' what you've learned. Only then will you begin to learn about yourself and what YOU NEED to 'feel cute.' You just have to apply these methods FIRST. The question and test is...will you?
