  • Start with sexy underwear.  You will be amazed how much more confident you feel.  Choose clothes that emphasize your good points and hide your flaws and that you feel comfortable wearing.

    And Happy Birthday!

  • I agree with undies...even if no one can see know you have them on...

  • i would stick to dark jeans. To fading, to whiskering!!! No low low rise. You want a mid rise to hold in your tummy. A slim boot cut if you can find it. Or bootcut. Heels will make you look trimmer and lift that booty. So go for heels, even if only 2 in!

    Do a v neck top dark colored top. Im not sure of your coloring...........maybe try a dark purple or blue, if you want to stay away from black and get a nice fitted coat/jacket. Let me find some pics to show you. Dont close the jacket though. This helps make your silhouette seem trimmer ; ) Dont forget to accessorize!
