My dear four followers,

The last few days have been frantic, flipping fashion magazines and streaming all the latest milanese and parisian fashion shows. I was hoping to draw inspiration from them for advice to give to Cate for her "perfect wardrobe".  Not that our darling has won the lottery but the inspiration can be found everywhere, even reviewing an old '40s movie, right? Did you see Katherine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story? Well, I love her style, a bit “masculine”!

Meanwhile Cate, in the warmly beiruting day, continues to sip mint tea in the garden in the company of friends, waiting for me to send her the list of items to buy.

Then, while I was flipping Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, a famous sentence jumped in front of my eyes:
Let us leave the beautiful women to men with no imagination. Marcel Proust |What’s Happening, Cate?


All right, but ... what are the strengths and weaknesses? Does Cate know them? I don’t believe so, and I think that the majority of women don’t know them either. They are always so focused on fighting their own weaknesses that they can’t see and appreciate their strengths.
In the light of these insights I immediately wrote to our beloved Cate, in Beirut, informing her that for a while she could still save some money, postponing her shopping by having full knowledge of the forms of her body. Let's be honest, we can’t dress like Monica Bellucci if we have Olivia Palermo’s body!

I want you to stand in a large mirror chamber wearing only underwear, on a beautiful sunny day, and I want you to look at your reflection for a long time and try to understand your physical body. 
Which parts are the best, the ones you should be proud of? And which ones should you improve? 
You can’t change your body type, of course, but you can definitely alter some parts, partly with a diet but mainly with plenty of exercise. But if even that is not enough, then we can resort to some “tricks” of fashion that are always valid but unfortunately not commonly known. 
No one teaches us how to operate in a partnership and no one teaches us how to dress, but there are tons of books that teach us the former yet no books that teach us the latter.

In summary:
- sunny day (only because the sun helps boost your mood  ;) )
- mirror chamber
- in bra and panty
- with your legs together and your arms slightly apart from your hips, look at the width of your shoulders and hips, the presence or absence of a waist, and if your thighs are turned or thin.

What you have deduced from your observation? Where do you tend to accumulate more weight? In the upper part, lower part of your body ... everywhere? Then maybe you are an apple-shaped woman or a pear-shaped woman or an hourglass-shaped woman. We’ll go over these in detail in the next post.

The photo below shows us the reflection of Cate after the exam: she starts crying desperately on her bed!

She wanted to have the height of Nicole Kidman, Monica Bellucci's breasts and the legs of Nadja Auermann. Anything else? Oh yes, Jennifer Lopez's bottom!

Surely Cate doesn’t know that an American study by Austin's University, in Texas, showed that the ideal female body type has the following characteristics:  
- Hourglass shaped or 8 shaped body
- Length of the torso (upper part) proportionate to length of the legs (lower part) regardless of the actual height. (Do you know Kylie Minogue?)
- Defined waist, even when not too skinny
- Oval face.

Would you say that she is tall "only" 5 ft and 2” ?

Do you know how many women of the world population have all these characteristics? Only 2%. And what are we, the remaining 98% (apple shaped women, pear, strawberry, banana) supposed to do? We can only try to hide our shapeless sides. 

Some of these women are able to transform their defects in fascinating characteristics. 
O. Wilde once said that...

And as Cate, relieved from these statistics, writes the list of flaws she'll want to make fascinating...

…I leave you with ... a series of pictures of women who succeed at doing this ... at making their flaws really fascinating instead of wanting delete them: a face not perfect enough, a body too thin or too fat, crooked teeth, short body, eyes far apart…
Stop, stop, Stop!

Enjoy these pictures that will give you ideas on what flaw to work on, I just hope you're lucky enough to find only one!


What is the physical defect that you love and what is the one you just can’t stand?
