The day before I got married I had long red hair down to the top of my butt. I got it cut into a Bubble style cut the day before my wedding. And I loved it. There was a shocked look when I got to the alter.

I have tried to let it grow a couple of times, but could stand it only down to the middle of my back. Then got it cut again and again. I now wear it in a Pixie style. Really short, close to my head. My picture was taken during one of my trying to let it grow times. I towel dry my hair now and don't even use a comb or brush on it. Tousled look.

I have always dressed conservatively. Even today. I was never one to show cleavage or wear my skirts too short. I HATE socks and still don't wear them even in the middle of winter during a blizzard. I wore heels during my working days, but have always preferred flats. Loafer style. Now I go only 1.5 inch high on the heels for a special occassion.

In the house I stay in a nightgown. For going out into the nieghborhood, slacks and a top. Sometimes a skirt and a top. I love maxi skirts. Hides everything. Including the large scar on my leg.

So the questions are .. what was your favorite look at any time in your past life - could be your haircut, your shoes, and entire ensemble !

And what style or fad do you hope never ever comes around again.
I'm pretty open-minded when it comes to fashion/style, but can't wait to see the pants-below-the-butt look gone. The other look that's a no-no for me is men in skinny jeggings. Looks a little, well, metrosexual. Not that there's anything wrong with that. It's just not a good look on a male.

If you're blessed with a figure that's circumferencially ample, pants that taper down to tight around the ankles are not your friends.

Eddie Bauer is my friend. I like that they have tall sizes in small sizes, and the Miraclesuit is, well, a miracle. Lotsa spandex in those babies.

I wear my hair very long, always have. Wash and wear, and I can put it up in a clip wet or dry. DH trims my hair, and he works cheap. Just wish the gray would go away, but apparently there will soon be a pill for that.

Folks with bigger bottoms would probably look better with jackets that don't cut them in half. I don't like the trend of short jackets for women. And jeggings on anyone is just wrong....

That's the most important thing about dressing. It isn't always what you wear, but the fit that makes all the difference in the world.

A t-shirt and jeans can look sharp on certain people with a proper fit. I'm not at my ideal weight, so slim fit polos and t-shirts don't do me any favors, patterns and plaids with a trim cut look best on me, it helps camouflage the imperfections.

I also wear jackets that have a straight shape and aren't bulky, a pea coat has to be single breasted, as does suit jackets, those are more slimming on me.

In my opinion many things can look "put together" if they are fitted correctly, kept in good shape and not all wrinkled. I'm a fan of casual done right.

I want a top that is loose and covers at least half my butt. I have no waist, short tops do absolutely nothing for me. Print top, solid dark color bottoms. I am most likely the old lady in jeans, t-shirt purchased from ThinkGeek and a pair of Merrells. Unless I'm at work, there I wear scrubs.

Butt coverage is a necessity, considering I don't have one. No waist either. Nothing tucked in. I would look like an insect. I love longer vests and cardigans and have a few favorite long jackets, and pockets are a must. Always black pants for work. Got a couple short denim jackets that look good with long skirts.
