clothing personalities, part 1 (ingenue and romantic)

The first step is learning what our clothing personality profile is. There are six basic personality types:
...
Classic -- simple but elegant
Dramatic -- entrance making
Romantic -- sexy
Ingenue -- innocent
Natural -- earthy/sporty
Gamin -- spunky
...
we'll start with the Ingenue today.
...
The ingenue woman is a sweet, youthful, innocent portrait of femininity. She is not sexy and alluring, but rather has a naive, feminine side. When she enters a room, she brings a special quality of freshness.
...
Her body type is as follows:
Feminine, small-boned, dainty. Regardless of height, her frame is delicate looking. Figure traits are gently rounded.
...
Personality Profile:
Artistic, charming, enchanting and magnetic (like Romantic).
...
Clothing:
Frilly frocks of tucks, ruffles and lace. Old fashioned feminine styles, Victorian looks. Simple clothes in feminine fabrics.
...
Fabrics for her:
Weights should be light, soft woolens and fine silks, fine cotton, crisp cotton, angora, cashmere
...
Patterns:
feminine prints and florals, from small to large
...
Accessories:
Jewelry is small and dainty, florals, ribbons, bows and cameos, diamonds
...
Shopping tips:
A planned budget is ideal. You may first want to look through a catalog to find your style. Fabric quality is not crucial, you may wear less expensive clothes and have a more expansive wardrobe. Always remember to finish your look. This is where you may have trouble, whether it is shoes, bag, coat or jewelry
...
Proto-types:
Goldie Hawn, Charlene Tilton, Barbara Mandrel
...
personally i really dont think that there *are* any ingenues (at least not adults). i think all ingenues grow up into romantics. i almost think these two categories should be merged, but that's just my humble opinion.
...
romantics
...
She is a sexy lady; curvy and very feminine. She is the epitome of sex appeal. When she enters a room full of people, most women present will feel threatened by her sex appeal. She is charming, enchanting and magnetic. She can be very accommodating and sympathetic.
...
Her body type is as follows:
Height is average to short, not tall. Figure proportions are very shapely, rounded and soft. Hips and buttocks are always rounded.
...
Personality Profile:
Artistic, charming, enchanting and magnetic.
...
Clothing:
Rounded lines, lots of draping of fabrics, flowing shapes in dresses with a waistline. Waist definition, with soft, ornate feminine lines. Fluidity of line from head to toe.
...
Fabrics for her:
Weights should be light to medium, finishes should be rich. Suggested fabrics are silk, soft wool, crepes, sweater knits such as angora and cashmere, suede's and soft leathers.
...
Patterns:
Oversized florals, polka dots, feathery shapes, soft abstracts, solids.
...
Accessories:
Jewelry is dainty in detail, but lavish in effect. Silk scarves and flowers work well with this look. Evening looks are ornate. Diamonds
...
Shopping tips:
A planned budget is ideal. Focus on spending the most money on the waist up. The garment itself must express your style. Do not choose cheap fabrics, it will discount your look quickly.
...
Proto-types:
Liz Taylor, Rita Hayworth, Sophia Loren, Donna Mills, Jane Seymore

Jodi, thanks for your help with loading photos! How did you figure that out? Picasa has been working for me lately but it didn't last night. I can't even begin to tell you how many hours of my life I have wasted trying to get photo on my posts.

Thanks again!
