In honor of women’s history month I decided to share my personal 5 step journey to self-acceptance.
Step 1) HONESTY
Step 2) RESEARCH
*Choose lower and wider necklines like scoop, square, large V-neck or sweetheart.
*Follow your body line – avoid details around bust, tummy and hips. Keep detail in top and lower thirds.
*Keep the clothing line straight to slightly fitted, but fabric soft so you avoid unnecessary bulk around the bosom, waist and tummy
*Keep details above the bust line and below the hip line – for everything in between keep it plain and simple
*Keep your silhouette fitted under bust and as well below your arms and along your waist
*wear visible belts whether big or small
*avoid sleeves which finish next to your bust
*no fuss and volume near bust, tummy or hip area, lapels, double breasted jackets, kitten heels, and Ugg boots
It’s much easier to accept your body once you have an idea of the best way to clothe it.
Step 3) DRESS BETTER….which leads to Step 4) FEEL BETTER
Step 5) PAY IT FORWARD
In the fall of 2014,Windy City Wardrobe was born! The content I write and share is intended to promote self-expression, self-acceptance, creativity and diversity. Let me know how I’m doing; I love feedback!
It was the very images depicted below that gave me hope when I was feeling hopelessly lost in pursuit of self-acceptance and style.

I know all this information at once can be overwhelming but I’ve found that the easiest way to narrow down your choices is to take a style quiz. My favorite one can be found at joy of clothes, click here for the free comprehensive style quiz.
Good Luck & Happy Hunting!
