From the wise words from many people, “dress to impress.” Or is it “dress for success?” Regardless, it is definitely important to look your best whenever you can. Dress it up when you go to work, class or even when you go to the gyno. When I say dress up I don’t mean put on some gold heels or some stupid sparkly dress. I mean dress up like you are attending a themed party that is the perfect theme for your individual sense of style. For example: laid-back rockstar, polka-dot palooza, sweatsuit Saturdays, etc. Shock yourself with buying that new fish print shirt, or those botanical butt shorts you’ve been dying to try on. Whatever you do, surprise yourself with something new and flirty. Thus, I dare change the quote to:
“Dress to make people stop, look, start walking, stop and look again.”
I know when people first see me they instantly know that I am a fashionista (and a maxxonista). People think “maybe she is born with it.” To which I would like to respond, “yes, I am.” If you are not #blessed like me, gaining a sense of fashion is definitely obtainable. All you need is two things:
- A human or dog body (I am so sorry to discriminate against cats, I hate them)
Can it really be that easy? Yes it can. Fashion is in the eye of the beholder. If you think you look good, then you do. If you feel most confident in a Hawaiian shirt then put it on and go to a party. If a camo jumpsuit makes you feel sexy, then wear it to the next bar mitzvah you attend. I know that I feel confident when I wear a man’s flannel, so I wear it for many occasions. Doesn’t mean I am a man, mom and dad.
So let me help you decide what you should wear with a little help from some super confident and beautiful women: Betsy Slagle and Rebecca Sheehan. Check out the slideshow below to get some tips for your next outfit.
Be you. Dress you. Fall in love with mirrors. And don’t forget that you can be fashionable just like me.
