As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, the Kibbe styling guide subdivides body shapes into five main categories, which further divide into 2 or 3 more, depending on which method you’re using. They go from stereotypically male-type traits (linear, angular, strong, bone-dominant), which are called yang, and are represented by the Dramatic type;…

Greatness Should Keep On Giving

Yesterday, for the first time in about twenty years, I shopped at H&M. It had been accused of not caring for the environment or its workers, the complaints were loud, and unapologetic.

Adapting the wrong lines for your body

Last week I told you about going along with our natural lines, and not getting stuck with the three measurements of bust, waist and hips ratios.

Am I a Minimalist After All?

I recently wrote a post titled Why I’m not a Minimalist, and my dear sister commented on my FB page explaining that Minimalism isn’t just about getting rid of stuff, it’s about simplifying life so we have more time for loved ones, she also brought to my attention that there is at least one very…
