When I put together outfits to photograph, I try them all on and think I am set for the week.  Then I go look at the photos and I am not always pleased with the results.  There really is something so different from the way things look in the mirror and what a camera lens reveals.  How can they be so different?  I am just grateful for this experience and what I am learning from dong this blog.   While I don’t dislike the above outfit.  It is not spectacular.  I love the dress and the jean jacket is one of my favorite pieces.  I think that the dress is in such subtle shades and the jacket helps.  Would love my dear readers to give their views here, just be gentle and kind as it is really hard to put yourself out here like this….Any suggestions to take this to a different more lovable level?

I was really fond of this outfit in the mirror, but think the sweater is one I should hold off on until I lose some more weight.  I think it doesn’t show my curves at all and over emphasizes my bust… This skirt and sweater are ones I thrifted and intended to use as my body shrinks, so will revisit this combo in the next two months….   I really think it has potential… The best part of this photo and why I didn’t just ditch this picture is my purse.  It is a Dooney and Burke, given to me by a good friend.  She asked me if this was my first Dooney and I replied that it will probably be my only one.

I just don’t spend lots of money on purses… Remember I am a stay at home mother of four.  There are a lot better ways to spend that kind of money.  For example contacts for my  16 year old, shoes for my 21 year old daughter in college, pants for my growing 12 year old or even a night out at the movies for my two youngest, my husband and I, not to mention taking my 12 year old homeschooler to the Aquarium.    All real expenses that were very recent…

The great thing is that I don’t feel at all deprived for not spending hundreds of dollars on a single purse.  I am so blessed in my life and that is just something that has never really mattered to me.  Gasp, I know what kind of fashionista am I?  A passion for clothes and a love for styling them is all it takes to be a fashionista  and I have an infectious love of both those.

Gratitude- I am grateful to all my children who are open and share themselves with me.  I am grateful for the breakdown with my son’s theater group that opened up a discussion that allowed me to heal him and bring us closer…

Comments are appreciated, my apologies that you have to return to the top of this post to do so, I would move it to the bottom, but couldn’t find out how….

Tomorrow is A Lucky Find Day with my purchases of the week,  mostly thrifted items…!
