In continuation of my going bold theme, I took some time to take a look at some things that scare me.
Things that scare me in both fashion and in beauty.
Things that I don’t do because I always have a set of rules that say why I can’t, but I ignore the one reason I can:
Because I want to.
So much passes me by because I think it won’t be flattering or that I have no business wearing it because I’m not “built properly” to rock it.
An example: I never really got on board with the whole jumpsuit thing. I kept seeing them everywhere, and I’m all “Someone like me with a belly has NO BUSINESS wearing that!” And then I bought a bodycon dress for my birthday dinner. Technically, it’s along the same lines of what I “shouldn’t” be wearing: I have a belly. I should be dressing to camouflage my belly, cause that’s what conventional fat girl fashion wisdom says. At the same time, I have to understand that for as long as I’ve been on this earth, I have had a belly. It isn’t gonna disappear in a larger dress or shirt or whatever. So I can keep trying to hide it and let some good fashion pass me by yet again, or I could just rock the thing.
I felt amazing in my dress. No regrets.
So, by association, I ought to be able to wear a jumpsuit or romper and feel just as amazing, right?
This week’s postings will focus on trends that scare me. Either because it isn’t something I’d normally do, or because it’s something I’ve been trained that I’m not supposed to do.
And for fun, here’s a pic of me in a lipstick color most folks have trouble with: red!
This is the MAC Viva Glam Rihanna lipstick and lipglass.
See you tomorrow with a new Nail Adventure!
