Not too long ago, I met an old acquaintance at a friend's party and he relayed to me how he had an incredible high school crush on a girl who had the "prettiest, massive curly red hair." I love this story because there are so many girls out there who try to straighten their hair, cover it up, change the color, but what made this girl so appealing was how she confidently rocked her own unique locks.
Over the years, I have learned that feeling confident and sexy is not about showing the most leg or wearing the most makeup. It's about rocking the very part of you that makes you unique. Perhaps you've got a flair for frilly feminine frocks or a love of vintage pumps, but no matter what your favorite style is, every girl's bff should be an awesome tailor. No matter how expensive or pretty your outfit is, it's not going to look good on you if you don't feel good in it. A good tailor can help you accentuate what you love and hide what you don't.
The good news about this is that you can contribute to a more eco-friendly environment by purchasing used and vintage clothing and then tailoring it to fit your own body style. Personally, I am a big fan of the A line dress, perfect for engagement parties to bridal showers, and flattering to a variety of figures. Below are some beautiful vintage A line dresses found at ReInvintage.
