Work on my personal image & new style πŸ‘—

@tcodinat this is something I always want to do but have no idea where to start! Got any tips?
@temilasade Sadly I find myself in the same situation - absolutely no idea, but mainly I rely on friends who give good suggestions (I think it's easier to improve your own personal image if there's some external feedback, since they see you differently) & inspiration I get from other people or through online boards like Pinterest. I think it could be done better (which would be a cool project for me to work on haha, once I figure out my own style first though)
@tcodinat external feedback - key as always. Not sure where you're based but I know TopShop do personal styling (for free) and have heard very good things! Maybe I should book an appointment one of these days..
@tcodinat I need to do the same. Actually start dressing like a grownup woman
@tcodinat It may sound silly, but watching Queer eye on Netflix gives you 5 different perspective on personal image and well being + it's really fun and inspirational and heart-warming. I always want to give myself a makeover afterwards because I learn what to focus on. :)
@tcodinat Have you tried a service like Stitch Fix? I tried it once when I was in the US and I can see it being helpful if you're not sure where to start.
@anthilemoon Seems interesting, is it US-only though? I would say my main issue is I don't have a style, I am rather looking to find something that suits me. Which is certainly an issue because I always get asked what my style / taste like, idk.
@tcodinat Ha yes, Stitch Fix is US only, but if you look up fashion/styling subscription boxes on Google in your country, I'm sure you will find an equivalent. The good thing about these is that you don't need to have a style per se. You fill a quick questionnaire, receive your first box, keep what you like, and send back what you don't like. The content of the boxes is supposed to get better and more custom over time.
@anthilemoon Uh huh, I see. So in that case, they basically send in items based on what appear to be your tastes? Personally that's actually the problem I have, I would prefer to make it be based on body / person. I can't buy things online whatsoever due to that, it might look nice on 99% of people but not on me ^^
@tcodinat Ha no, it's not only/necessarily about your tastes - you have to give them all of your measurements, and a personal stylist will pick what will work with your body shape. Rather than finding one single style for you, they will send you clothing to build your wardrobe, so you have casual stuff, stuff to wear for parties, etc. It's not for everyone, but the target audience is definitely people who don't have a specific style already.
