An Unconventional "Fashionista"?
I love fashion and beauty but I'm not a slave to either. I sometimes wonder how many other people are like me. I love looking through fashion magazines (So happy when a new issue of InStyle arrives =)). I get excited for the previews of the new designer collections. I love fashion and beauty on Pinterest, Polyvore, Facebook, etc. However, I'm not opposed to leaving the house in jeans and a t-shirt. I don't feel as if I'm going to die if I'm seen in public with a make-up free face. I know how to put together an outfit to die for but sometimes (ok, a lot of the time) I just want to wear good old fashioned, back to basics - jeans, t-shirt, hoodies, sneakers, etc. That's just who I am and more than anything else I think it's important to stay true to yourself. I realize you never get a second chance to make a first impression and I know we're judged on our appearances but I still don't really care. I've completed courses to be a color consultant, a "stylist", an image consultant, etc. but truthfully, I think we should get away from always basing how we think about ourselves and others on appearances. I know that's a silly dream of mine and that it will never happen in the real world... Of course people like to look their best! I totally agree with proper grooming and hygiene but if you feel like leaving the house without priming, primping, and all the added prep, do it. Brush your hair, pull it up or leave it down, brush your teeth, wash your face, put on CLEAN clothes and GO for God's sake!
