I have always loved clothes, I suppose most girls do of course but I have had a sort of obsession with them since I was a child. I would see an outfit on TV or in a magazine and have to have it. It didn’t matter if I had no where to wear it, I was convinced my life would change if I could just own it. The problem was the type of clothes I loved. I am a sucker for high heels and cute layered pieces, you know the stuff people on television wear everyday but no one wears in real life, at least not in my life. You see, I live in the country in a small town where people don’t even dress up for funerals.
As a result I have an overflowing closet full of great clothes and shoes I never wear because I don’t want to feel out of place. Well, no more. This year that is all going to change and I don’t care who is watching. My three New Years Fashion Resolutions are:
1. I will proudly wear my four inch heels no matter how casual the occasion.
After all, I am short and a girl always could use a little height. I may be a little
uncomfortable but I will look really good!
2. I will dress in cute sweaters that serve no purpose and matching tops that look great with my heals.
Just because I am only going to Walmart is no reason not to dress up. Of course if I were still in my teens
of twenties people probably wouldn’t care, the fact that I am in my forties makes it a little harder to pull off.
3. I will never again leave the house without makeup.
I had no problem sticking to this when I was a teen.
Why should it be so hard now?
I do feel a little sorry for my husband, as everyone will think he is married to the most high maintenance woman in the world. I never understood why people assume if you are dressed well, in full makeup and look good then you must be lazy. If anything it is the opposite. I still have to do all the things I normally do like cooking and cleaning and lugging groceries. Plus I have to make time to get fixed up. If anything it is a lot more work than just throwing on a pair of sneakers to run to Walmart. I think I just realized why I don’t do it. Oh well, it is going to be an exhausting year but damn it I will look good!
