The Romantic is a full-figured woman who, by nature, cares deeply about the things that matter to her. She is a compassionate lady who takes great responsibility for the comfort of others. People love to be around her when they need a respite, because she is so attentive to their needs and has a gift for creating atmosphere of peace. I like to relate this Image Identity (Img.ID) to the orchid, which is a voluptuous beauty. Like the orchid, the Romantic’s features, frame and personality tend to captivate the onlooker, as she is the epitome of femininity. Her image should be soft, mysterious and sophisticated, like she is.
If you are a Romantic, here is my caution for the week:
By definition, “Romantic” is sexy and alluring; this Img.ID brings with it a quality of richness that sometimes makes other women feel inadequate around her. Typically, Romantics do not realize the power of their beauty.
- Be aware of the fluidity of your fabrics; your clothing should gently hug your figure without any pulling or sagging. Choose soft, ornate feminine lines and patterns and textures.
- Be sure to respect your figure; do not hide it, and do not expose it. Avoid anything tight or baggy.
- Although you may find that people take advantage of your charming and accommodating nature at times, be careful not to give so much of yourself that you loose yourself. Consider that you were designed to bring comfort to others but you will do best to find comfort for yourself first. Seek out the One who created you; allow Him to speak to your heart.
