Are there any other ENFP chicks who get compliments on their unique style?
I've been complimented on my entire spectrum of attire. I've had men tell me they like that I have the confidence to wear 'normal' loose fitting clothing and not mess with make-up for daily adventures.. and I've also been told I look stunning when I do dress up, odd clothing or formal garb.
I'm reminded entirely of two events though: Prom Night in High School.. where my whole outfit (hair done and all) costed less than the ticket.. and I was complimented on and was told I looked better than the girls with $500+ dresses..
And a christmas party at my old company. Good company, boring job.(What's worse for an ENFP than a set schedule, the SAME mindless task everyday, and no one to socialize with?) Rich company = rich party. My boss, one of the owners, two of the actors (one of which flirted with me), and several attendees mentioned to me that I looked absolutely stunning even though I wore a cheap dress from the oriental shop.. There was a girl there (whom obviously tries too hard with everything for attention from her fellow employees..) who wore an exact replica of Christine's dress (The theme was Phantom of the Opera) and when we got the company photo's back it seemed like half the pictures had me in it at some point in time.. in comparison, she had a measley 3 taken of her.
I felt absolutely unstoppable and beautiful during those times, because I knew I was then.. I don't feel that way all the time, but knowing I can feel that way usually is enough to satisfy me.

Cimarron: maybe Prpl will be your girl-bud
prplchknz: i don't like it
Very curious, do other people (ENFPs?) happen to feel this way too? That dressing up is like.. transporting! (yes I sound like a starry-eyed 5-year-old 'Pink Princess' Barbie type now) Okay, yes obviously throwing on some new rags won't change what youre like inside -.- Duh.
But what i meant was, i find dressing up to somewhat... empowering? Like, you can find different traces/elements of yourself when you wear different outfits (eg. you become more free-spirited and laidback when dressing boho/folksy, or more serious/task-oriented when dressed more professionally). Is this true for other people, too? Or am i just being weird and superficial? Haha
I identify with this! My style reflects my mood. Dressing up does brings a sense of empowerment. (Ex when I wear spandex pants/long tops to cover up the tush, especially around the elders. I LOVE it! Makes me feel like Super-Woman! No joke).
I get compliments for my dress style (which I hate, b/c it's not like I wanna make a statement.. I'm just being me).
I'll have days where I love wearing baggy, cotton, Hawaiian style-dresses (they're so cute)..
Other days I feel like dressing up like a hippie with bell-bottoms, cute bohemian top (I really should've been born in the 70s). Some days I love wearing pin-stripe pants/professional looking tops (for when I need to feel get myself charged up to negotiate jobs).
Then there are times I just love my long sundresses. Btw, I don't know if it's an ENFP thing, but I tend to do what I like to call: "Shopping in my closet." I tend to keep ALL of my clothes from way back when (cute outfits, even from 10 years ago) and mix/match. I believe in recycling. I rarely shop. When I do, I only buy what I truly LOVE at bargain price! I'm ultra picky.
