I’ve really enjoyed our fashion chats recently. I do want to be clear though that I’m hardly a fashionista; in fact, those of you who know me in person know that while I’m not a candidate for What Not to Wear, I am much more LL Bean than Neiman Marcus, my little fancy dress fetish aside.
I also firmly believe that as long as you’re happy with yourself and the way you dress, none of these rules are absolutes. I have always lived in horse country, where no one thinks a thing of a woman shopping in the same clothes she’ll wear to the barn when she finishes her errands. Very few of our restaurants have dress codes, and I think we’re a pretty easy-going community in general.
My problem is I lost my sense of self somewhere along the way. I got in a rut and then got used to that rut and now, I’m finally reconnecting with ME. These fashion “rules” posts have been food for thought for me, and clearly, some of you have had strong feelings about them too. Thank you for sharing them with me! With my “flesh and blood” friends, I pick up a lot of their sense of style and attitudes about fashion just through regular contact. Since many of us communicate exclusively electronically, these chats that evolve from blog posts really add new dimensions to our friendships.
Anyway, Happy Dogs on Thursday! I blogged a bit about the girls on their blog about their own identity issues. Neither of my girls are post children for their breeds in one respect or another, and I am curious about how your pets stack up against the stereotypes.
I can’t believe it’s little friday already. This week – this month – has flown by, or is it just me?
Thankful Thursday finds me actually loving the girl in the mirror. I mean that sincerely. She looks good, feels good, and that’s not something I take for granted. I always TRY to like her, but sometimes, we’re at odds. I’m feeling sassy again, so look out world!
What are you thankful for today?
