Confessions of a Fallen Fashionista

The Lady in Grey

Grey, heather grey, charcoal grey, white, denim, faded denim, ready-for-Goodwill denim, drab, drab, drab. What's become of me? Most who know me would describe me as a fashion risk-taker; one with an eclectic sense of style. Avant garde, even (which ironically is so passe).

I'm an artist; I fill my days with beauty, I live for it! So, what about me?! I've fallen in a bit of a fashion quagmire-creator of fashion jewelry that I am. I have my finger on the pulse of fashion, but my finger is the extent of it.

So, last week whilst the children and Favorite Guy were out, I replenished my supply of cosmetic bag staples and I'm going to devote an entire week- beginning tomorrow, to kick-starting my zest for fashion and overall personal appearance give-a-shit.

If you are currently in need of a personal appearance give-a-shit kick start, feel free to join me by devoting just 5 extra minutes to your Self each day this week and posting about it. In addition, post a link to your blog in the comments. It's a tough job, and that's exactly why I've gotta do it!

Peace and some personal appearance give a shit!

I work in an office full time, so 5 days a week I have to give a shit. When the weekends roll around, it's t-shirts, jeans, slippers, no makeup if I'm not going anywhere important and hair that is....well....not very attractive....because I don't give a shit and that's okay by me! :)

Good luck with your give a shit journey! :)

One ticket to give-a-shit valley please. You got a place for all this baggage? =)

Thanks for the kick. I used to make jewelry, but did I ever wear it? No and now I have gotten out of the habit. Need to get back in. And for a girl who was a teenager in the 80s I never learned to do anything with my hear or makeup... which the one good thing is there are few "Big hair" photos out in the universe to haunt me.

Loved that final line. I have to admit to be a very black-and-white kind of person (literally). Favourite colours: blue, dark blue, navy blue, sky blue... and... did I mention blue? And then, there's black, and then, there's black and white and grey, any grey.

Have fun with the make-over.

Greetings from London.

yep. i was going through the same things for like...4 months straight.
i usually do get stuck in that rut where i'm creating beautiful items for other and neglect myslef.

i got some new shoes lately--first ones in a loooong time--and they've inspired me to pull it together fashion wise!
