I'd say be comfortable in every sense. And confident in your own criteria.

could you please recommend some celebs that have similar body to mine and a good style... because i love to follow celebs' style here on tFS and get inspired by them
maybe someone like salma hayek (though i confess i don't really know what her style looks like lately) or dita von teese?

christina hendricks has a fuller figure and looks great in the mad men styles but she's hit-or-miss as a style inspiration i think...
just not really consistent imo

it shouldn't be this difficult to think of celebs who have curves

I wear grey/black t-shirts and jeans exclusively. I would dress up a bit more if I could, but it's extremely hot and humid here very often. It simply wouldn't be practical.

And I hate having to shave my legs all the time. I like it in the winter when I can grow a small forest on my legs and not even worry about it because I'm wearing jeans, leggings, or tights every day.

maybe that post should go in the 'tell us a secret' thread...
cause i don't know if that is really a 'personal style statement' so much as laziness...

:p...

So just a quick question for ya'll- I'm starting college again but this time at a new school (tomorrow! ). And I'm rather nervous about it to be honest, so I figured one way to make me feel better would be to wear some thing nice that I'll feel comfortable in but also stylish (but not to dressy obviously). I want to seem approachable to my fellow classmates but also stand out in my own way. So any suggestions as what to wear? I have a few ideas but at the moment they all just seem lame (or it could just be one aspect of my nerves). Also for fun, lets say if you were going back to school, what would you wear on the first day?

What's your weather forecast? I'm in Ohio, so the weather can be anything from cold and rainy to hot and humid, with everything in between (sometimes even on the same day!). If I had a better idea of temperature, I'd be able to suggest something that might work for you.

i think we have a thread on what to wear when you are a student...or at university...
you should do a search---probably a better place to ask that question......

hurt my wrist or i'd try to find it for you...

Thanks Softgrey and ATM1985. It was super rainy today so I just went with a casual outfit of jeans, black shirt, scarf, moccasins and some jewelry. Nothing too jazzed up because the weather was so crummy and I hate getting really nice things wet.

Probably a little late to be giving advice, but the first day of school isn't the only time you can look stylish, right?

Anyways, I saw this girl in a maroon dress and Doc Martens. The Doc Martens were a bit off-putting, but the dress was modern and beautiful! And it didn't seem like she was "trying too hard" at all.
