Is it really good for you?

I'm not the fashion police and I don't have all the answers in this fashion world, but I feel comfortable saying that " Everything that looks good isn't always good for you."

There's always going to be something that you think's cute and you like, but it may not be the best fit for you. I understand that we should all be comfortable in the skin we're in and live in our greatness and whatever that looks like, but when presenting yourself in public you always should take into consideration how your clothes fit when they're on you.

Of course, we're not always going to be worried about what other people have to say. Honestly, it's not about other people at this point; it's about you and how you see and want to carry yourself that speaks to a person without using words. Your first impression is so important.

Undergarments and clothing that hug the body are pieces of your wardrobe that you always want to consider when finding "A look." This is important, especially when you're going somewhere that has a dress code. It doesn't matter if you have on an outfit from Walmart, FarFromBasic, or even Gucci, which are all great brands. What matters, in the end, is how you present yourself when you're wearing it. If it doesn't fit, it doesn't fit.

You would be amazed at how many people don't like shopping because they don't want to admit that they've moved up a pant or dress size and they know they need a closet reset. The reality of it makes them sick, but the reality is the reality. You've either gained weight, lost weight, or simply never worn that certain store brand before and aren't clear on the size chart..... You may even have plans to either gain more weight or lose weight. In the meantime, while you're on that journey, you should always have something that fits you for that season of your life at that very moment. That size 9 that you are used to wearing may be looking more like an 11/12 " best fit" and you have to be OK with that. I'm sorry to be the one to tell you, but I know for some of you it could be a great thing and for others, it could be not so great. I say all of that to say, even though things may be sold in your size, you have to know your "true size" currently because we are human and everyone's weight is prone to fluctuating. We cannot hold on to that by telling ourselves, "It's a little tight or small" but I'm going to lose some weight this year. You may even say "I'm in the process of gaining weight so I'll be fine."

Oftentimes, it doesn't happen like that. In the meantime, keep it cute, classy, or even sexy as long as you know your true size and it fits well, with nothing falling out or buckling, you've done your part.
