Two interesting bits of news arrived from Tokyo. The first comes from Tiffany Godoy, an American journalist in Tokyo. The author of “Style Deficit Disorder: Tokyo Street Fashion,” Godoy knows a lot about the heart and soul—and history—of genres broadly connected with Harajuku. She and the writer Ivan Vartanian have a new book, “Japanese Goth,” due out in May, which looks at the strange aesthetic blend of rococo and heavy metal.

Ashley is a friend and client of my "What to Wear" wardrobe consulting. She agreed to let me snap a few shots of her in an outfit we found in her closet which is less than ideal and then, the better alternative.
The striped sweater does nothing but exaggerate her broad shoulder line, add bulk, and visually add width to her middle, while capris that pull show off her tummy. Her second outfit gives her a longer, leaner line because it is one color, dark (recedes), and it doesn't pull. The collar pulls our eyes up, and the deep V neckline does wonders for slimming and breaking up a wide area. I generally would recommend wearing full length pants to elongate even more, but if you're going to wear capris - this is the way to do it! An excellent comparison of same-category outfits that Ashley already has in her wardrobe! When she wants to be taller still, she's got fabulous heels, full length pants, and a dress that flatters via cut & color!

HELPING YOU HELP YOUR BREASTS
Putting your best bust forward is one of the simplest ways to look younger, slimmer and healthier. It’s been said that from seventy to eighty-five percent of American women are wearing the wrong bra. Let’s change that, shall we? As you age, breakdown of the skin and breast tissue causes your breasts to sag. This problem occurs on small breasted women as well. Wearing the correct bra is simply healthier for you and your breasts. Here are some bra pointers to help you help your breasts.• When your clothing size changes, so does your cup size. Refit and resize regularly.
• Every brand fits differently, depending on the style and where it is manufactured. YOU NEED TO TRY SEVERAL ON.
• As a bra's band size increases, so does the cup size. For example: a 38B has a larger cup than a 36B.
• When part of your breast actually bulges out of the top creating four instead of two breasts, the cup is too tight
