Hello My Beautiful readers,
How are y’all doing, Today I have the final update on the finding your personal style which had two other blog posts that preceded it… Here is a short recap for the newbies, The first post, finding your personal style 101 I discussed the introduction to this series where I run through the common types of styles world-wide to give you an over view of what is what and if you can relate to any of the groups, the key point was to give a mental picture of what Glam, Emo, Preppy and Edgy just to mention but a few looks like it, and the key was to help you guys put a name to you’re already developed personal style and for those who haven’t to get a general idea.
The 2nd post Finding Your Personal Style 102 highlighted on understanding and helping one fully capture their personal style and more up on the previous post, with that being out-of-the-way today I came up with a fun way to fully help you in finding your personal style and it is a list-check to help you out on your journey.
I think my shopping has been way easier ever since I knew my personal style, here is a hint to help you through… Don’t take it too serious and this is an ongoing process, as we grow with time so does our style evolve within us, the only constant thing is having FUN alongside your discovery.
