Body Type Quiz from Yahoo!

August 27, 2011 § 6 Comments

While I was reading this article from Yahoo! about “Vanity Sizing” I came across this link on how to tell your body type. Here’s the link:

You have to answer some easy questions then voila! you have your body type. I took the test and here’s my result.

Your body shape is triangle. Your body type is primarily endomorph with some mesomorph tendencies.

TriangleIllustration by Scotty Reifsnyder
Your Shape
Classically feminine, with shapely legs, a whittled waist, and a curvy bum.
Your Health
Triangles have higher levels of estrogen, which signals fertility. Wider hips may protect from heart disease and boost the chances of living longer. With your body shape, obesity increases your risk for memory loss and mental decline; staying trim as you age is important.
Your Beauty
Humans are hard-wired to find your figure attractive, from way back in caveman times. A triangle body shape, which stores fat in the hips and thighs, suggests that you can maintain a pregnancy and produce healthy children.
Fashion Tip: Add structure
Your chest and shoulders are small, so add volume to your upper half. This summer, try a boatneck shirt with horizontal stripes, or a wide scoop neck in bright jewel tones. On chilly evenings, go for a cropped jacket, or a cardigan with three-quarter sleeves.

You’re soft and feminine, reminiscent of the Renaissance’s most lauded ladies. Your metabolism might feel like your biggest foe, but try focusing on your favorite body part and doing strength-training exercises to highlight it. Most women are endomorphs, but as you build muscle and burn fat, you might see a stronger secondary, or even primary, body type emerge.
Nutrition Tip: Eat an energy-boosting breakfast
Aim for foods that will provide long-lasting energy. Start your day with a low-fat yogurt and fruit smoothie. Add coconut water instead of juice—sugar-sweetened drinks will make your energy spike and crash. Complex carbs are great for your body too. Try oatmeal or whole wheat toast with nut butter or scrambled egg whites for a healthy, hearty kick-off to your day
Exercise Tip: Love your legs.
Most women aim to increase muscle tone, but shy away from leggy workouts and focus on their abs instead. Think of it this way: Muscle is a fat-burning powerhouse, so the key to all-over tone is building strong legs, glutes, and lats—the biggest muscles in your body. Yoga and pilates work all three while improving balance and support



Repost: 5 Style Essentials Every Plus-Size Woman Should Own

THis article is a repost from Yahoo!

By Julia Malacoff, REDBOOK

Stock up on these stylish classic pieces that will flatter your shape while carrying you through all four seasons.

1. A Great Pencil Skirt

Whether it’s for work or an evening out, a pencil skirt is refined, yet classic, and complements all shapes. Liven up the classic pencil skirt by going for a dramatic color.

2. A Cool Blazer

A blazer can be used to add a stylish layer to any outfit. This is a piece that can carry you from the office to after work engagements. Try a current style, like a boyfriend cut, or stick with a classic for a more polished look. This jacket’s built-in fabric belt accentuates and cinches the waist.

3.  A Wide Belt

 A great belt can add an element of interest to any outfit. Try incorporating a brightly colored one into your everyday skirt-and-blouse office combo. A thicker belt that cinches your waist will help emphasize your curves in the best way possible. A daring tri-colored belt provides a cute and fashionable alternative to other traditional wide belts. Its mixture of colors brightens up any wardrobe and provides a perfect accent for tamer outfits.

4. A Shift Dress

A shift dress will skim your curves in the most flattering way, and don’t be afraid of color! It’s true that wearing all black will streamline your silhouette, but you can get the same effect with any solid color. The ruching accentuates the waist, while the pleated neckline draws attention to the face.

5. A Pair of Jeans That Really Fit

 Jeans are a closet staple that every woman should own. It’s better to have one pair that fits you perfectly than several that you aren’t completely happy with. Dedicate an afternoon to trying on jeans and finding your perfect fit; it’s totally worth it!

Plus-size couture
By Larry Leviste
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 22:03:00 08/27/2009
IN THE real world, size really doesn’t matter. Or it shouldn’t, because 70 percent of women on our planet aren’t fitted with a size-zero body like models in Vogue magazine.

This is why most double-digit-sized women find it frustrating and infuriating that ready-to-wear doesn’t address their distress. Usually, shapeless kaftans or dusters in big floral prints are the store staples for the full figured.

For today’s Inquirer Exclusive spread, designer and environment advocate Dita Sandico Ong (35 Wilson St., Greenhills, San Juan; tel. 7267260) celebrates plus-size couture with color-sure cotton jersey separates with her iconic indigenous woven accent shawls, boleros and neckpieces.

It starts with a positive attitude, Ong says, being happy inside your skin, that confidence that you love your figure and yet want to wear the latest styles and accessories. It definitely empowers women who have been forgotten in the fashion market. These pieces say I belong.

Start with vibrant happy colors that will make your figure sing sensational. Use face-flattering accents for your top as shown in the arresting boleros, sculpture scarves and fashion shawls. Wear flowing skirts and pants in comfortable cotton jersey.

Be bold to flaunt your assets via makeup or accent jewelry. With wonderful people around, you will surely feel likewise.

Here’s my outfit:

 Black Floral 3/4 Polo | Peach Floral Skirt | Brown Braided Belt

 Red Checkered Purse | Green Crocs Wedge 

Black Cocktail Ring | Black and Silver Bangles


Kpop Sister

August 6, 2011 my sister had their acquaintance party. The theme was kpop. My sister asked me to google an outfit about kpop. I’m not a big fan of kpop songs because first of all I can’t understand the song but I’m totally into their fashion. Their fashion is so full of colors. I love korean fashion because their so stylish and fresh.

Here’s what I found that would suit my sister:

My sister copied the one on the left side.

Here’s my sister’s outfit:
