Know Your Body

Wednesday, March 17, 2010
I think that one of the most important things in the fashion world is knowing your body. I know that sounds kind of hokey, but it's true. Knowing your body type can prevent a multitude of fashion faux pas.

For example, take Joe Jonas

The poor guy just doesn't get it. He has big legs; thighs and calves. Rather than a skinny jean, like he's trying to rock, he needs to wear a straight leg, or wider. It's one thing for women to wear jeans that hug their curves, it's an entirely different one for a man to do it.

Others who are notorious for being unaware of their body type:

Mariah Carey

and Jessica Simpson.

They both desperately need to befriend Christina Hendricks.

Because I know my body type, I save myself from fashion disasters such as these:

Why? My legs, my ass...oh man. We don't want to even go there.

I saw a pair of tiny floral print skinny jeans at Levi's the other day. They were so cute. My boyfriend looked at me and I said, "Yes, I know. My ass would look huge." And he said, "It would look like confetti....on your ass."

I wholeheartedly agree.

hahahaha confetti on your ass. love it. is it wrong that joe jonas is my favourite jonas brother? or is it worse that i have a favourite jonas brother. he's a hot youngin, don't hate.

another one - JAMES FRANCO. homeboy should avoid skinny jeans as well.

Mariah and JSimps - dear god. you're spot on there. And I agree, Christina Hendricks has got it down. If she can contain that rack then Jessica and Mariah have NO excuses.

OH GOD MARIAH IS HUGE!! Honey, get thee to a proper stylist.

Livie said...

haha confetti on your ass! seriously you are too funny!

and double ha for Niki - it's SO wrong to have a fave Jonas brother!

Poor Jessica - she tries so hard.

Ha, I totally agree with your post! That poor guy definitely needs to get a new pair of pants. The celebs you mentioned have such fluctuating bodies, I don't think they can keep up with themselves in the wardrobe department. Nonetheless, they do need to make smarter choices.

lol cute dialogue b/w you and the boyfriend. but I agree about knowing your body, it's important so you can find clothes that fit right and are comfortable.

Nice post, I'm glad someone else finally criticized a Jonas' sense of style hahaha. I don't see what's so desirable about them!

I love Christina Hendricks, she's so beautiful and so well dressed.

Great blog btw :)
