Got Curves?

Here are this month’s dressing tips from C. Marie. Yes! They actually work!

For the Pear Shaped
If you’re pear shaped (smaller on top and curvier on bottom like me) and you want your bottom half to appear smaller, wear darker colors for bottoms and lighter color tops. Dark colors are slimming, such as black (my fav) or navy, or coco brown :)

For the Apple Shaped
If you are apple shaped (bigger on top, slim legs), wear darker colors on top, and lighter colors on bottom. The lighter colors will make your bottom appear more curvy.M

Thick-waisted
NEVER wear horizontal stripes!!! (I learned this one the hard way, at a photo shoot!) Unless, you want to look as wide as the horizon! Instead, pick a nice verticle stripe, that will make your body look taller, or slimmer, or just darn cute!!!

Those are my top 3. I swear by them. Check back next month and there will be more, More, MORE.

    As one pear shape to another I couldn’t agree with your advise more. I love your new line, it’s great. I was channel surfing and saw you on the Chelsea Handler Show and you talked about your new line. I’ve always hated shopping because I can’t find clothes that fit my hips and thighs and yet small enough for my waist.
    ( especially jeans )Now I can’t wait. Thank You!

  2. I found these CM jeans at Mervyn’s (the last pair in my size)and wish I could buy 10 more.
    Best jeans for a curvy cutie like me and even after I washed them , they are the best fit.
    I am “apple shaped” but these jeans give me so much confidence.
    Thanks for making the best jeans ever!

    My family lives in Texas so ive seen your clothes and i love them. When will your clothing line be coming to the northeastern area?

  10. Jennifer Radick says:

    Hello, I am Jim’s ( Skell’s brother) girlfriend, Jennifer. I was trying to check out your clothing line at Mervyn’s but could not get through. I wondered if your clothes were under a certain brand name. Jim told me a little about you, and I thought I would check out your style because I am always looking to slim down the bottom half! I am also going through a transition from juniors to women’s clothing and I want to still look cute, yet sophisticated… I wonder if you could direct me to where I would need to look to shop online?! Thanks!

  11. Cari Muñoz says:

    While I am really interested in your line, my town in Indiana, and those around me, do not have any Mervins. I tried looking for how to purchase some of the jeans but couldn’t find the link on the site… Thanks though :)

  12. Lisa Marie says:

  13. Alexandria says:
