It is so easy when you don't leave the house, or if you leave the house but don't get out the car, or if you leave the house get out of the car but only run into where ever (grocery store, post office, bank, etc.) for just a quick second, not to think of how you look.
I am all for every once in a while giving yourself a break and chilling in your comfiest of clothes but when the people closest to you start asking in subtle ways if you're ever going to wear all those things you bought last year, or whatever happened to those fashion posts you used to do, or even gasp, if your husband says, "do you want to go and buy a few new things", (I know, right?) then it's time to get it together and make an effort.
So I've made myself an appointment to get my hair done, I've gone through my makeup and noted what needs replacing and I've even decided to start doing a Wednesday fashion post again, at least a couple of times a month, starting next week.

You know what's partly to blame for this awakening? The purging and cleaning around the house I started earlier in the week. It seems creating order in one area of life inspires you to make changes in other ones as well. And this little ditty from Singer circa 1949 didn't help anything either.
Boy, have things changed. You've come a long way baby. I'm not sure if us coming so far in the last 60 years is a good thing or not? Do chime in...
