Ok, I will tell all. I trust my mother's fashion choices for undergarments and simple frocks/dresses. My sister just steals everything. My fiance makes me look untra prep and sometimes ultra slutty. I guess it depends on his mood, and as much as I love my best friend... she wears nothing but namebrand sports wear. Totally not me, so I'd have to go with her.

my mom has NO sense of style. she tells me that you "stop caring" about how you look when you get older. well, obviously for HER. she wears earrings with pictures of her cat on it, t-shirts with cat stuff on it, really tight spandex-like leggings as PANTS, awful shoes...oh lord. plus, i'm 18-going-on-19, so i would much prefer someone EITHER near my age, or older WITH a sense of style. either or. not my momma! my boyfriend either. a few times i told him to rifle through my closet, or at a store, and pick me something to wear. yikes.

I said the bf but it's also my friends too. i always pick out clothes that they look at like "what are you thinking?" but once they see me wear it they are like, "oh wow that looks great!" Ive really learned to trust my "fashion instincts"" now that Im getting older.

boyfriends would put you over-sized turtleneck sweaters and baggy jeans, if it means no other guys will look at you. haha used to have a joke with my ex about that one.

I can't think of anyone off hand whose opinion on fashion i value the least.I really haven't got too much advice about it and if i did i probably took it into consideration if it was within reason.I don't know everything and I do value other's opinions as well. Usually i have people who are asking me for it.....

My boyfriend can dress himself well, but I generally disagree with his opinions of my fashion choices. He'll tell me, "Oh no, take that off. What are you thinking?" I keep it on, and get a ton of compliments. If I wear something other than black, I "look like a parrot." I can give him credit for getting me away from big chunky shoes, and into more feminine heels. He used to call all my shoes "potatoes" I see it now, but luckily, that was over 4 years ago.

i don't trust most of my friends because we have very different ideas on style and what it worth spending money on. i would rather spend more money on something to get quality, especially with classic peices and to get something that fits properly and is flattering, though most of my friends would rather buy a bunch of poorly made, cheap, trendy stuff.

Ditto, Freya and inertia! The cycles of fashion have naturally occurring faux pas (IMO: ponchos, and the current cycle of "is she pregnant?" tops and dresses) and magazines support them while they're hot. I like being "current," but I try to hang on to what I know will always look good on me too. Props to the people whose husbands and mothers think they are always the most beautiful in the world.

Definitely my mother's. She'd dressed me like a straight out skank if she had her way. I like subtle and classy but she prefers "Bootilicious" written in glitter across the behind. Her personal style is up there with Lil' Kim...

my mom ....there is a different between not having taste and just having bad taste..and my mom has bad taste!

my mother! she learned long ago never to get me any clothes or jewelry for gifts and now takes me shopping on my birthday instead of buying it herself. i love her to pieces and this compromise has worked out very well. :)

My mom. She just doesn't have much of a sense of style. She can say something looks good but she just can't put anything together for herself.

My older brother. He doesn't get female clothes--he says one-shoulder shirts are for cave girls, I look like I pirate when I tuck my jeans into knee-high boots, and that I got ripped off at the store for buying cropped pants (if I paid $20 more, I could have gotten the whole pant)...boys just don't get it! The best things in life are free. The second best are expensive.

My hubby 100% .. he see's me but he does not see anything! Everything is great & o.k.(this is his reaction when I ask is this ok: Its good good, if you think is o.k.), until when we are out half night through he whispers ' You really look sexy ' but before that I don't think he sees properly.. or I mentioned just before to a friend of mine HE does not realize that I have added 3 different pairs of boots to my huge boot collection....or that I am constantly buying new clothes :-)(I guess that is ok otherwise I would be banned from the net + shops,lol):)

I vote American fashion mags. I'm petite and fashion that looks good on tall women is irrelevant to me, and I'm half Asian so even the makeup tips are useless. As for people I know IRL, they tend to be too gentle when I ask if something looks okay, but I wouldn't say I don't value their advice. It's just that I have to ask in the right way. It's a little hard to tell someone "That dress doesn't look good on you," but not that difficult to say "Out of those 3, I like the blue one most."

My sister is incredibly tiny and stick thin and tends to wear clothes that show that off. I could never wear the stuff that she does! And I'm not sure that her advice to me would be any good...

There is only one person I trust, and it's a friend of mine. My mother wants me to dress like a tramp (sad but true. She's always saying stuff like, "That neckline should be lower. Don't you want to show more cleavage? :oy: ) My sister hasn't been shopping since 2001. She just doesn't care about fashion. And she doesn't wear anything that isn't black or maroon. My boyfriend actually has valid, reasonable opinions about my wardrobe once in a while. But he doesn't know much.

I wear my own style and sometimes that means getting raised eyebrows from my mom, she a little more preppy then I am. I also can't trust my husband b/c he thinks I'm still the same size I was when we started dating (which is sweet but c'mon there is a huge difference between a 4 and 8)LOL

I chose my mom, I mean she wouldn't say I look great if I look like a fat slob, but she always says I'm so beatiful, thin, sometimes I just can't trust her!

My older brother he's well dressed, but he knows nothing about women's clothes.
