  1. how to purchase clothing that actually flatter
    • don’t look at the designer or the model wearing the clothes
      • these are photographs of people who don’t share your body type, skin color, and height with photoshop or special lighting and makeup in picturesque backgrounds. don’t purchase how you feel when you look at an artistic and stylized picture
      • designer clothing used to mean that it’s expensive because it’s high quality –colors, fibers, fabric design, creative construction, professional finish, fitted. However, current designer clothing lack many true markers of high quality. many clothing are made with synthetic fibers, and poor fit. Current designer clothing is expensive because they’ve marketed and changed the opinion of many who believe that markers of designer clothing show high social status despite it’s poor quality. Don’t buy the illusion that because it’s expensive, it’s high quality. You are trying to buy status or flaunt status. Buy clothes.
      • don’t choose designer clothing to appear rich. you will look garish, pretentious, and greedy. if you want attention or to wow someone with your appearance, use high quality fabric, high quality construction, flattering colors and accents, fit, and a low fat high muscle tone body. the moment you open your mouth or the way you behave around another will determine how much attention you deserve or the kind of positive or negative affect you have on the lives of others
    • look at the content and look for 100% natural fibers
      • natural fibers include: cotton, linen, silk, ramie, wool, fur, mohair, alpaca, angora, suede, leather
    • have a blank state of low fat levels and high muscle levels
      • eat fibrous and starchy vegetables, seafood, fruit, nut, seed, seaweed for nutrition. quit processed foods with no nutrition value and addictive taste
      • exercise to build muscle
    • wear clothing that fit at the shoulders, waist, hip, legs, arms
      • no ‘boxy’ silouhette unless you want to look like a box
      • no ‘bat wings’ unless you want to look like a bat
      • no ‘baggy sweater’ unless you want to look like a bag
    • wear colors that will invite people in or give off a positive/intended/warm impression
      • light allows us to take in more information whereas dark allows us to take little information with our eyes; therefore, wear light colors like white and icy colors for an open, fresh, feminine look
      • wear black or dark hues of colors for a mysterious, masculine look
      • graphic lines, accents, appliques like visible buttons, zippers, patches, bows, strings, beading and embroidery, extra fabric such as draping/ruffles/shirring/pleats that are colored can draw attention to a specific body part so think about how that can be used to draw attention to specific parts of your body or give an illusionary look about the shape of your body to balance things out
    • to look fancy or good, it’s about the quality of the fabric so wear expensive fibers
      • natural fibers have a good relationship to your skin and outside temperature
      • learn to mix and coordinate textures by understanding the types of weaves, knits, crochet, netting patterns. Type of fabrics is what makes a fabric is a velvet, a satin, a chiffon, stretchy, soft, stiff, a tweed, light, weighted, flowy
    • to look fancy or good, it’s about the fit and construction of the finished piece of clothing so wear clothing that were expertly constructed
      • fits your body
      • has interesting architecture to balance out your body type and flatter you the most based on the length of your torso vs legs, your height, your width of hips/breast/shoulders
      • when you wear clothing, it shapes how people view you because they are looking at the fabric and the construction so it’s important to wear something that is sculptural and pleasing to look at from all angles
    • wear modest clothing
      • cover your arms, legs, feet, hands, and chest
        • protect your skin from the sun
      • revealing skin is a strange thing to do. if you can cover up to protect your skin then do it
      • modest does not mean frumpy to hide your body. Modest meaning cover the skin but wear fitted clothing
  2. Change your mindset about what clothes are
    • Clothes will not get you friends who care about you, enjoy spending quality time with you, positively influence you, or share positive life decisions
    • Clothes will not make you happier or more attractive. The kind of person you are –what beliefs you have, how you change your surroundings, how you communicate with people, how you use your capabilities, how you influence the minds of others, how you take care of your well being will determine your level of happiness and attractiveness. So don’t purchase a piece of new clothing because you feel like you will look desirable wearing it because of its price tag, branding, model and photo.
    • Clothes will not get you a romantic partner who you will share a special bond with and trust
    • Clothes will not impress people in the long term
    • The amount of money you spend on your wardrobe does not say anything about your level of status or affect in others’ lives
    • —On the contrary—
    • Clothes will get your foot in the door because people judge on what they see before they see how you behave and the words you say. So wearing fitted, flattering colors, well constructed fabrics will exude class, artful beauty and intelligence. To actually enter the door into forming positive relationships with friends, employers, and romantic partners, you will need a positive lifestyle filled with trust worthy actions, healthy decision making, activity and intelligence
    • Clothes will determine how you feel because it is a tool. Certain colors, textures, and weight will determine how you feel because you are covering your body with it. It is the way you express yourself.
    • Taking good care of your clothes and purchasing high quality fiber and construction will be of great benefit to you socially and personally.
