My name is Jessie and I have a bit of a dilemma that has been bothering me since high school. Now it's eight years later and apparently I have yet to have a fashion sense. One of my good friends is a fashion designer and though I love her dearly, it seems that every time we go shopping, I go from very excited to get new clothes to feeling very insecre about what I think is fashionable. It seems that every time I find something flattering or cute she'll turn to me and kind of give me a shrug and a polite but obviously not agreeable "yeah I guess". What is it that I am doing wrong? She looks stunning. Always. But whenever I find something that I think she would like, I always end up coming up with opposite views of good clothing on my body.
I understand that we all have different tastes, but I think my problem lies a bit deeper than that. Now I even walk into the office in a shirt and skirt that I picked myself for example, and some of my co workers would come up to me and jokingly say they should come over and fix a few things about my wardrobe. Is there something that I need that everyone else has that I haven't developed yet?
I would really really like some suggestions of what I should wear in general since I have the sinking feeling I should start from scratch. I am definitely an apple shape with a big bust size but semi flat mid section. My butt isn't flat but it isn't endowed either. I am a size 6-8 and medium all the way.
Any tips at all would be greatly appreciated and thanks for making it to the end of my story. I am feeling down and out about what I wear on my back now and I could really use some help.
