Secret Style (of the Victoria kind)

Style is not just about what you show to the world.  In fact style really should have more about much of what you hide from the world.  It should come from within.  It is who you are.  Who we are is a question that should take us our whole lives to discover, but it can be who we are in that moment and what we want to exude.  It can express itself in a great dress, in your killer pair of jeans, in a purse, in a car, in tablecloth.  It can also exhibit itself in your lingerie, even if there is no one there to see it.  I’ll admit I rarely buy new under garments, my poor husband.  Although on second thought I don’t know how much he cares, as it’s not about what I wear, but how it makes me feel.  So amongst my old panties and bras there is still quite a bit of style.  These days my bras consist of one beautiful, lacy nursing bra, and three sports bras.  Want to know which makes me feel more stylish and sexier?  Not the lacy girl, but the sports bra.  Why?  It lift my ladies up, it gives me a waist, and hell it feels so much better comfort wise, and makes my shirts look better.  Then I feel confident, and that is style.  On the flip side though I hate my white cotton under pieces.  They are ratty and nasty and I only wear them when I feel ratty and nasty.  I actually take a careful amount of time picking out what I am going to wear in the morning. Partially because I want to make sure not to have visible panty line, or bright colors with white pants, but more because it will reflect how I feel.  I wear my Gap bright colors with designs on happy, work-days.  My comfy black satin when I want to feel a little risqué (even though they don’t necessarily look that way)  And I wear my tongue and cheek items when I’m feeling well… tongue and cheek- my favorite being my hand knitted pairs.  I have different themes- Christmas Mistletoe is my favorite.  They make me laugh, they make my husband laugh, they make my friends laugh when I give them away as gifts.  My point being that Style comes from finding what piece of you you want to show the world today, and running with it.  Sometimes that translates to what you actually show the world which is why fashion is such a big business, and I love doing what I do.  But sometimes it’s just for you, and your secret.  So if you would like your very own pair of knitted panties- custom made-size, color, image I will give 3 of them away for free if you follow me on instagram and facebook and twitter with the hashtag #PersonalSLStylingknits and a picture of your favorite item that represents your style. I’ll pick the 3 lucky winners next Sunday the 22.


About stellalucille

Growing up, I did not like to shop-in fact, it almost always ended in tears. As a teenager I was busy baking, swimming, and hanging out with my boyfriend, not reading Seventeen or Elle for fashion advise. There was no indication I’d find my calling in fashion. But that all changed when I went to Los Angeles for collage and wanted to look the part. At first I loved to shop, but I easily gained the freshman 15, then more. Shopping became more difficult, but I stilled wanted to dress well. I fell in love with finding fashion forward clothing for the curvy woman and from there I had a plus size clothing. I’ve been all sizes- from straight sizes to junior plus, plus, maternity plus and back again. I love fashion and believe everyone needs to dress in his or her own style, while meshing that with what is fashion forward, fits, and works within your budget. Even though I’m the woman that wanted to wear jeans to my own wedding, I’ve always been the person that friends and family turn to for fashion advise, developing style, creating a shopping plan, educating them on fit, and helping them see beyond their own body perceptions. Put it this way I didn’t wear jeans to my wedding but when I found that elusive, perfect dress the first thing I said was it “feels” like I’m in my jeans. Finding the right fit is not always easy. Finding the right clothes is not always easy, and finding the right style is not always easy. But I can help you with all of that. Whatever shape or size, gender, lifestyle or budget there are great, fashionable, clothes for you. Feeling good in what you wear can make you feel great in who you are.
