Fashion means more to me than just buying clothes and wearing them. It also has a lot to do with self-expression and the control one has when putting together different outfits. Many people will find that fashion helps them to showcase their own, personal identity. For instance, I myself have developed a liking for dressing really feminine, so I tend to wear a lot of short skirts and high heels. If I were to describe my current style I would say that it is “girlie”, yet not too polished - definitely a true reflection of my transition from a body conscious tomboy, turned fashion blogger! I am more appreciative of who I am today, and so the clothes I choose to wear simply represent my newfound body confidence and acceptance of the hour glass figure.
The girl I used to be ten years ago would never have worn anything too revealing, clingy or short. Before I hit my troublesome twenties I would swamp my body in baggy, unflattering clothing to hide my curves and any sign of a fuller figure. I felt most comfortable doing this and never got teased or told off for it, which is probably why I thought it was even more acceptable and expected of me.
Surprisingly, nowadays people frequently describe me as “glamorous” or “high maintenance”, judging me solely on the basis of how I look. But it is never my intention to ‘over’ dress or look as though it has taken me three or four hours to get ready in the mornings. All it takes is just twenty minutes and I will be perfectly happy with how I look, and this includes my hair and make-up. So when people pay me compliments about my image, I’ll say: “thank you”. But secretly, I’ll be thinking: Gosh, it doesn’t take much, does it?
In an ideal world I would love to spend longer in my bedroom, aka my boudoir, choosing outfits and honing my beauty regime. I mean, what girl wouldn’t? But the lack of time in my life does not permit this. So I guess it’s just lucky that I make some pretty good choices anyway, and the looks I try always tend to work well with the help of some distinctive jewellery and smart choices of colours and garment combinations.
And before I end this post I just want to say that last week I got hair extensions and I am loving the extra length of hair on my head! I would like to say a big thank you to the hairdresser named Liz who put them in for me, as she did an excellent job and spent some quality time on my hair. She also had to listen to me change my mind about six or seven times before I decided on the style I wanted, and I can be very indecisive at the best of times (chuckles).
