I consider my personal style to be a form of expression. I’m a cancerian born July16th, so I sometimes dress according to my mood (lol). I love combining different pieces from different seasons and era’s. I love wearing what i want as long as the look is complete. Self confidence is the key, I seek no approvals!

Body Types! All shapes and sizes are Unique and Beautiful

As women, we all struggle with body concepts and types. Don’t worry! I’m here to help and give a few tips. The pictures below gives a visual of a few body types/shapes. If you do not see your body type fret not, you can be a combination of more than one type.

                                                                          PLUS-SIZE BODY TYPES

Diamond: If you’re tall, average, or petite most diamond shapes are narrow at the shoulders and back. The waistline is usually the dominate area, wide hips and thick thighs with a small ample rear. Legs are proportioned and toned. Tips: Balance is the key to every shape! Since the waistline is popular, you can draw in attention with dramatic necklines (boat neck, V-neck, off the shoulder etc.) You can always cinch in the waist with a belt. Don’t forget to Show Off those Lovely Legs!!!

Triangle: It’s obvious that the bottom portion is the dominate in this case. Narrow shoulders, narrow waistline and wide hips with proportional legs. Tips: The #1 rule to de-emphasizing large hips. Wear darker colors on the bottom and light colors on the top.

Rectangle: Usually has a short neckline and a undefined waist. Shoulders, hips, and legs are proportioned. Tips: Focus on creating a well-defined waist!

Oval: Short necklines with full faces. Slightly broad shoulders, a great bust line, and slender arms. A prominent waistline and curvy hips with a great pair of well-toned legs! Tips: Keep balance by creating a waistline.

Fashion is as Fashion does

Just Simple Fashions

As I’m scrolling through my Instagram, browsing as usual. Checking out hairstyles, fashions, and everyday life photos. I came across an amazingly talented designer by the name of NicciHou based in Atlanta, GA. I was in awe at first sight!!! She was serving printed fabrics, peplum bodice, exaggerated necklines, and high-low skirts. Shall I go On! Let’s just say I’m a complete fan.
Just to name a few, Nicci Hou has created designs for Chrisette Michele, Michelle Williams (1/3 of Destiny’s Child), and Marlo Hampton from (RHOA). Any inquires for custom garment orders, you can contact her at niccihou@yahoo.com
 “Nicci Hou is a luxury brand geared towards the Elite woman”

Musical Artist: Michelle Williams (1/3 of Destiny’s Child) @ 2013 Bet Awards
