I am much more concerned how fashion makes me feel, as opposed to how I look!
Thank you for the well wishes, I am slowly getting better. I have spent a lot of time sitting, reflecting, writing and pinning!! I love making pin boards. They help me focus my thoughts, inspirations and goals. I have been looking at my fashion boards. I think fashion is so important and has been a passion of mine since I was a young girl. Fashion spills over into all areas of my life, what I cook, how I decorate, even how I feel. I find I use fashion to express my feelings. On days where I feel depressed will I wear something to cheer me up or if I wear something cushy, like a soft sweater, it comforts me. I even have outfits for when I clean, my Tasha Glam as I call it! A pinny puts me in the frame of mind to scrub something clean. I am much more concerned how fashion makes me feel, as opposed to how I look. I have plenty of outfits, which are not the most flattering to my body type BUT I feel like a million bucks in them. Nothing is going to make one more attractive, than feeling attractive.
My style is quirky, vintage, a bit too youthful for my age and very feminine. Have you made a fashion board (or simple a fashion page in a journal)? I encourage you to think about what you like to wear, why you like it and how different styles make you feel. Heck you have a closet full of clothes, make the most of it. Use fashion to lift you up, to encourage you, to comfort or embolden you, to express what you are feeling, to project who you would like to be that day. I look at my collage above and this is the list of some things I see:
Mix of color and patterns, animal sweaters, grey tights, chunky heels, neutrals, every day lace, t-strap shoes, black and white, heels with ankle socks, cream and white together, touches of red, velvet w/ leather, girly dresses and simple glam!!
