Hello! I am back after my extended break for holiday and family time. Because of all the extra activities and extra people in my house, I have not thought very much about fashion and clothing in the past few weeks; in fact, when I was keeping three of my grandchildren this week, I wore my pajamas for almost an entire day!
During the holidays, I was so thankful that I had outfits already put together. All I had to do to find something to wear was look at photos, which was great because I did not have a lot of time to experiment.
That brings me to the topic that I want to write about today. WHY?
Why in the world would I ever even think about writing a blog, especially about fashion? Why would I add so many blog-related things to my to-do list when it is already pretty long? Why would I put my thoughts, feelings, and photos on the internet?
If you are a regular reader, or if you have read my About Me page, I hope you have figured out that my “why” is because I really want to help people who want to look better, to look better. I say that because some people, (seems like a lot of people) really do not seem to have any interest in looking better. Fine. I am not trying to convert anyone!
But there are people who really would like to look more stylish and put-together, and have no idea where to start, or are afraid to break out of their fashion rut. You are my people! I have been where you are! Maybe I am a only little farther down the road, but I truly hope that you can learn from my “victories” and my mistakes.
Maybe you have been raising families for many years, and have never taken time for yourself. Maybe you think you are too old, or too overweight, or too short, or too poor, or have no “fashion sense.”
Well, I can pretty much guarantee that I am older than most of you, I struggle with my weight, I am short, I have been poor, and my “fashion sense” has come from a lot of reading blogs and magazines, and watching television.
But I know that as a woman, I am so much happier and more confident when I feel like I look nice. I just want the same for you! 🙂
And I really do find most of my clothing for $20 or less. I don’t always tell you where I purchased an item or how much I paid for it, because truthfully, a lot of my clothing comes from clearance racks, and most likely would not available online.
Unlike many other blogs, I do not include a lot of links for you to click on. Yes, bloggers can make money by including links and by advertising, but that is not really my focus. I do not want to be a salesperson. I want to help people look better!
Since I have not yet had time to take any new pictures (okay, full disclosure…I have taken some, but they are terrible) I will leave you with some “before and after” flashbacks from 2016.
Thanks so much for reading, and for coming with me on this journey!
