Are You a Romantic?

What is YOUR Style: ROMANTIC

Think Monet!
ROMANTIC – Characteristics:
Romantic women are generally sexy, artistic, charming and diplomatic.  Preferring all that depicts the notion of being feminine, romantics strive for glamour and sensuality via soft, flowing fabrics, ruffles, lace, drapery (and often a bit of bling!).  Seeking beauty in grace in all that she does, a Romantic likes curls, flounces, and florals.  Because of this, she may have a tendency to think all the other personalities are always under dressed.  She has a natural sexiness that's alluring to men and intimidating or even threatening to other women.

A fellow blogger, Tamera Beardsley is a perfect example.
The Romantic values femininity and may actually be a hopeless romantic.  She likes to wear soft colors and often chooses fabrics like chiffon and silk that drape graciously on her body.

Likely to be collectors of beautiful objects, perhaps antique hatpins or china with floral motifs, her jewelry also often takes on the same heirloom-look.

Ruffles, lace, pleats, those are just a few of the whimsy, feminine details that tend to catch the Romantic's attention when you're in a store.

  1. I was so looking forward to this...truly I was/am. Thank you Elizabeth, this is me to a "T'. (only, I was big busted--not anymore --thanks to cancer and my figure? Not hour glass, giggles)

    I am so loving this series you are doing. Blessings sweet friend.

  2. I found this soo interesting! I am glad you said what you did at the end as SOME of the things apply to me, but not most....I do LOVE floral and prints but I like them bold and flashy, lol, not soft and alluring. Don't generally wear jewelry, though I love it on others, but when I do wear it I like it with old fashioned and with a history. I have a feeling I am a weird mix, lol. Have a good week!


I do love reading your comments, so please share your thoughts with me.
