In reference to this body type guide I would agree that I have a balanced vertical body with a pear shape horizontal body. It has its pros and cons. I adore my full thighs and hips but they limit the type of pants that I can wear! For this reason alone, I've decided that in 2011, I wont buy anymore pants: only dresses and skirts! By the time I turn 30, I want to wear only skirts and dresses! In this case I'll be showing a bit more leg but I've always loved my legs!! In fact, I wear pointed toe flats to elongate them even more! This is only a mere glimpse of my collection.
From the waist up, I have a very flat chest. No other way to put it! I vowed to be completely honest in 2011, no sugar coating here! Did I ever think about getting the surgery? Yea, but I can spend my money on better things. Additionally, with this body type, pear shape, it states that your shoulders will be rounded, not so much! But due to my smaller chest I am able to pull off the look seamlessly. I've found a new love for blazers and cardies, scarves, big necklaces, long earrings and more recently prints and plunging necklines!
At the end of the day, I'm very simple. I could wear a t-shirt and jeans every day of the week and be just fine. I still question my style and wonder if I've got it right everyday when I leave the house. Its never been an innate thing, I've always had to think about it! But as I move into my 30's and am eager to be more of a Lady and not just a Woman, I must find the style that sets me a part from the girls! One day I wish to be flawless..fierce...fabulous and classy!
