I don't mean that in a self-deprecating way. One of the things I like about myself is that I am not one to spend hours getting ready for anything. Give me a hairbrush, a toothbrush and some moderately clean clothes and I can be ready for whatever in about five minutes.
But, what this usually means is limp hair, no make-up, tennis shoes, jeans and a "dressy" tee shirt. FYI - dressy here means plain with nothing on it. That's about my only requirement for "dressy."
So, I'm trying.
I'm still not wearing make-up because after years of saying I was going to and working at it, I've finally just come to conclusion that I am just not a make-up person. I will wear it to job interviews and cocktail parties and maybe, maybe girls' nights. That don't involve my daughters. But not on a daily basis.
And although I want to work on the tennis shoes, I'm not making much progress.
So, basically, I bought some stuff that makes my already-almost-curly hair actually curl and I'm trying to wear matching clothes. And accessorize.
And that's the fun part.
|Apparently, trying doesn't|
require smiling or opening my
eyes. Pay no attention to that.
Look instead at the kinda
curly hair and necklace.
Not that the necklace is curly.
You know what I mean.
Holey Pants, this is a full time job.
But it's also inspired in me a desire for more accessories. For instance, despite my all encompassing adoration of all things scarfy, I only have about three. And I have a awe-inspiring collection of fun, little pendants, but most of silver chains have seen better days.
All I've bought so far is a card of big box silver hoops and a couple of pieces on a $1 sale at a little store downtown, but I have needs, here. Scarfy, necklacy, dangly earringy needs.
So, those of you who accessorize: where to you pick this stuff up? Give me some insight into where you shop. I'm hard on jewelry, especially, so I don't like to pay a lot, but I don't want it to be really pitiful quality, so mid-range stuff for bargain budgets? Help me, please.
