Ladies and Gentlemen, I now present to you-THE CUTEST JACKET OF ALL TIME:
I know this blog is just supposed to be about cute clothing but puttng this jacket on this morning reminded me of something fairly important. It reminded me that I am beautiful and unique and that I always have been. Duh.
The thing is, when you read/write fashion and style blogs, you are reminded daily that there is always someone more chic, more rich, happier, thinner, cooler and MORE STYLISH out there than you. Being reminded of this on a daily basis is sometimes hard. I started blogging because I wanted to show women that if they follow their instincts style just happens. Problem is, I think I have been spending too much time coveting other peoples style and STUFF. I will not be able to afford any Miu Miu platforms or Jessica Simpson clogs or Yoji Yamamoto jackets anytime soon. I never used to care about this.
I bought this little jacket at the goodwill for $1.25 a few months ago and once I got it home I resisted wearing it because I thought it wasn't 'fashiony' enough. I threw it on this morning on a whim and I feel GREAT. I feel like ME. I feel retro and girly and fun and STYLISH.
Just like I always have been.
So boys and girls, Today's lesson is be true to YOURSELF and pick and wear clothing that speaks to you. You will always look great.
A note about Tumblr. I LOVE it. It is really quite inspiration from a creative standpoint as well. You should all try it!
