I need help. I need fashion therapy. Is that a thing? I'm not talking, "I'm in a bad mood and need to go buy clothes," I'm talking putting on clothes puts me in a bad mood. I feel lost, and at the risk of sounding melodramatic, I feel inadequate. I want to put together cute outfits, but I never seem to get it right. Maybe it's because I'm getting fashion advice from a Wisconsin country boy, maybe it's because I feel like I look silly when I try for "fashion" or "cute," maybe it's because I don't look the way I want to (hence me trying to work out more), maybe it's because I'm just really, really bad at knowing what's cute and what's not. Whatever the reason, I need help!
I've been hunting for cute things at yard sales, and when I get them home and put them on, I'm just not sure if they look right or not. I usually try to dress nicely when we go out somewhere, the fella says that it doesn't look right, I get all crazy and revert to my trusty "fat" jeans and a t-shirt. Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE that the fella likes me dressed in jeans and a t-shirt better than any "fancy" outfit I can put together, but I really want to be able to figure this dressing myself thing out. I have this vision in my head of how I want to look, and granted it involves losing about 20 pounds, but the outfits in my head never seem to translate when I put things on.
Thanks for listening to my ramblings!
So here's the thing, I have this wonderful resource called the World Wide Web, and I want to use it. Every now and then, when I'm feeling especially frustrated (like last night), I'll post a picture or two of something that I'm not sure about, and you can give your HONEST opinion. I don't spend much on clothes, so if it gets overwhelming icky feedback, I'll be out a quarter or so. Don't hold back. I can take it. And I need HELP!!!
I got these shoes at a yard sale for 25 cents. I thought they were pretty cute, but what do I know?
What do you think?
Do they look like something an old school marm would wear?
