I came to a fashion epiphany today.
While casually sitting at my desk at 9:09am, pondering over what fabulous topic to blog about, a 60 watt fashion lightbulb popped up over my head. I came to the realization that no matter how crappy your life is, how much money you owe or how many powdered donuts you regret consuming the day before, if you're wearing a cute outfit, your day will be better.
It doesn't have to be an expensive ensemble, it doesn't have to be new. The only prerequisites are that:
1 - it fits well
2 - it doesn't ride up your butt/reveal visible panty lines
3 - it makes you feel pretty damn good while wearing it.
A perfectly worn out pair of jeans...a supersoft sweater that brings out the color in your eyes...a dangling pair of sassy earrings. It may be a big piece, it may be a small accessory, it may be both combined. I, for example, am wearing a navy cardigan, a lacy cami, gray hip slung wide leg trousers, my favorite Fossil watch and leather peep toe heels.
My life may be crappy, but I don't look crappy.
I just saved myself a few years worth of therapy.
