Happy day, dearest reader! If you are new here, welcome! It's lovely to meet you! If you missed my last post, we are working on some back to basics. All the students going back to school are starting off the year with a review/refresher from last year, so I thought the timing was right for… Continue reading Does X Mark Your Shape?
Happy day, dear reader! I am doing a little bit of back to basics here on the blog about body shape. Sort of like those refresher weeks when school starts each fall! For a little context, in my intro post to this series, we talked about why body shape matters, AND why it doesn't. In… Continue reading Are You an A?

Some women are remembering and dressing a body they used to have. They may not see that a weight… Continue reading What About Body Shape?
Happy day, dear reader! Google "effortless style" and you will get more than 67 million hits. So it's no wonder I get asked about effortless style...
