With all of the handmade pieces made for Fashion Not Fear, I’ve learned a few things about what people like.
One thing is for sure, Fashion Not Fear shoppers love a good print.
When I go out shopping for new fabrics, something that stands out with uniqueness is top of my list.
The first time, the Floreal printed set debut at a pop up shop, it sold out almost immediately.
“I love this print.”, “Where do you get your fabrics?” and “This color is so pretty.” are just some of the compliments the set received that day. From that moment; I knew that I had to make more with that fabric.
So imagine my extreme excitement when I went back to the fabric spot and found the same print with a different background color. I HAD to have it.
“I will take all you have.” I told the clerk. She rang me up and I happily skipped out of the store.
That is how the Gallant Dress was born. If everyone loved the print on the ivory background; they will fall head over heels for it on the black background.
Which is your favorite: cream or black background? Let me know in the comments…

Online shopping is much easier.
It helps to build one hell of a capsule collection! (Because all of your pieces can be styled together.)
Saves you time on planning outfits for events (Because you know what works.)
Now, that the surface has been scratched on the benefits. Let’s take a look at how to harness your signature style.
Unleashing the beast is much easier than you might think and can be broken into 4 main categories: Fit, Fabric, Feelings, and Accentuation.
If the fit is off; you might as well stay at home. Being real about your size is important in obtaining your signature style. You can buy a size 8 but if you wear a 12; then the fit on the 8 just won’t do. And that’s okay! Size doesn’t matter, fit does.

There seems to be a misconception that wearing something really tight with make you look smaller. But that’s completely wrong! The opposite happens. The only thing wearing something too small does is push what was supposed to fit comfortably in that skirt somewhere else. You end up with a belly roll you didn’t have before. Get measured, try on, purchase made-to-measure pieces…do whatever necessary to ensure a proper fit. Wearing your signature style should not feel uncomfortable.
This is probably one of the most underrated elements in garments for shoppers. See it, like it, buy it…is usually how it goes. But taking an extra minute to analyze the fabric will help you tremendously.
Touch the fabric…
Does it stretch? Is it transparent (when it shouldn’t be)? Are the seams falling apart? Does it feel cheap? When buying online; how does the store describe the fabric? Will it feel comfortable on your skin?
You won’t regret taking the time to check out the fabric. Think about wearing a pair of white pants that are made from fabric so thin that you can your underwear? Not cute.
How does the look make you feel? It’s that simple. Wearing something that makes you feel good changes your walk, talk, pushes your shoulders back, and your head up.
