Back to business as usual then?
My wardrobe needs serious supplementation. I have observation and tutoring to prepare for and I would like to halt my descent into schlubbiness as quickly as possible. (Sweatpants and t-shirts are the devil. They are so comfortable and they just lure you in.)
I want to really move out of my comfort zone this season so I decided to set myself a few fashion challenges.
Fashion Challenge Number One: Makeup
I love playing with makeup but I rarely wear it. I have decided that I want to begin working on my face on weekends so I can discover what works best for me and any egregious errors won't matter much.
Fashion Challenge Number Two: Tucking In
I have this irrational fear of tucking in shirts. I feel like it somehow accentuates my largest part, my belly, and that it looks unattractive. At the same time, I really like the look of higher waisted skirts and pants and I wonder if I could pull something like that off.
Fashion Challenge Number Three: Tall Boots
First, I discovered on Manolo for the Big Girl that Duo boots is offering free international shipping right now. I kind of hate that I wasted so much cash on the wedding! Duo makes fitted shoes, many that accommodate the wider calfed of us. I want a decent pair of knee boots and maybe even go crazy with some over the knee numbers.
Fashion Challenge Number Four: Dresses, Skirts, and Tights
I pretty much live in pants but I have a growing appreciation for dresses and skirts. I also love the idea of colorful tights.
Fashion Challenge Number Five: Accessorizing
I never do this, but I think I should. I have the notion that this is how you make style really personal. I need to develop mine.
So these are my fashion challenges for fall. I'm excited to see how it goes-and also how I'm going to accomplish it on a budget!
