Trying to get back into making videos! Made this quick one on how to tie a scarf the “retro”, “rockabilly”, or “Rosie the Riveter” way. Pretty basic and easy but since I didn’t know how to do it at first I’m sure someone doesn’t know as well.
A complete wardrobe needs the essential “Uniform”. The uniform is what makes you most comfortable, what you feel the best in and what you usually gravitate towards buying. When you find yourself justifying buying pretty much the same stuff by the self gratifying notion that it’s a “necessity”, ” classic” or “needed”, those items are probably part of your uniform. When you find yourself justifying the siltiest difference in the same pieces those too are part of your uniform.
The uniform is classic, timeless (if tweaked properly) not forced or trying to hard. You wont have to think when putting on your uniform, you wont have to fuss and though it may be simple it’s your salvation from clothing ruts.
lets face it as women we really have complicated this whole getting dressed thing. There are so manny silhouettes, types, colors, prints and just confusing things out there we wear.
Borrow it from the boys who have somehow found the timeless solution to getting dressed “re make the same staples and let the times dictate the slight tweaks”. Men don’t have 15 bizzilon different types of t-shirts they have maybe 3, men don’t have 20 thousand different types of jeans they maybe have 3-4. Men have been buying the same staple peaces in different fabrics, colors and textures for forever, why cant we?
So embrace the uniform and go out and buy some more of the same crap!!!
Life has a way of making you uncomfortable when you’ve been to comfortable. In a way life has a built in universal mechanism that forces you to change, move one and be better. Whenever you feel like things are fine the way they are life reminds you the need for improvement.
When things are almost to good life reminds you it’s about embracing the good and bad. Our bad times and down moments reminded us to appreciate the better ones that much more. You have to embrace disappointment, failure and hurt to be that much more grateful for your triumphs and moments of happiness.
Life teaches you to be patient and that you are not in control of much. That it is not in your hands to put a time line on anything, that it is never in your hands to decide when it is “your time”. In due time, when the universe decides it is “your time” “your moment” it will happen, so just keep working towards it.
Besides how tight these pants are there is very little “Faintly” in my “Masculine” right now. (scratch that boys wear tight jeans too) How do you feel about a little clown meets 90’s pimp? This is a lot of blue huh?
Fashion has to have a “peacock” affect sometimes. That ability to just have the “look at me! look at me” affect on the rest of the world. I don’t think getting dressed is fun if it’s not “FUN” sometimes. Personal style has to sometimes be about showing that side of yourself completely literally, meaning your emotion of the moment and exactly how you are feeling is translated into your outfit.
I don’t own manny dresses but the few I do I wear a ton. I’m very specific about dresses, they have to be the right length and style to really make me cave. I usually feel like a little doll in them or a small child so it’s pretty much a big deal to find one that works for me.
