[December meme]: Fashion [05]

from [personal profile] jesse_the_k - "Your fashion role models, influencers, cheerleaders, or hell the worst pair of shoes you've ever owned."

I'm having a hard time with this one because I don't feel like I have a personal style. I spent most of high school in jeans and hoodies. Since being an unpaid intern, I've had to build up a wardrobe of business casual, but I don't consider it very fashionable.

I have a hard time finding things that fit me. Until Torrid opened in Green Bay, I couldn't find any lace/nice florals (which I've liked forever) in a size that actually accommodated my bust.

I hate clothes shopping because as a kid I spent a lot of time being unable to fit into things I wanted, unable to shop in all the stores my friends did.

I don't know about role models - I like seeing what Lea Michele is wearing, or Olivia Pope on Scandal. A few other celebrities. But none of these people share my body type, so idk that I'd say I try to copy their fashion.
I guess probably other women in my life - my sister and cousins-in-law & cousins are good at putting together outfits, as are most of the women I work with.

Sorry to send you to the empty place.

From the outside, I really admire your "put-togetherness." Whatever, whenever, nothing hangs or dangles, whether in zippers or colors. Somehow you manage to find tops which neither gap nor bag.

Also nice bags, which as you know, are important.

"Business casual" clothes are kind of horrible in their preppy blandness. I had to wear a lot of those when I was working as a technical writer at client sites.
