Thank goodness it is Friday…even though our weekend is forecast to be rainy and cold! We are actually beginning to see the end of our drought and that is very exciting. Current predictions have the amazing Texas wildflowers returning in a big way this spring…I can’t wait!
|My happy piece of clothing is this scarf|
Here are a few bits and pieces I thought you might enjoy:
First off, Joy Sewing wrote an article for the San Antonio Express News about happy, confident dressing…something I try to discuss almost every day here. You can click on this link for the entire article which mentions these five points to challenge yourself:
"1. Wear Things that make you happy.
2. Add color, it’s a mood booster
3. Let go of negatives. Forget your stomach or man boobs. Focus on fit.
4. Dress like you’re happy even when you are not…it helps.
5. Be neat – always".
I would agree with all of these…however I am not always neat…but number four works! Choose to dress happy and act happy even if you do not feel it and things will feel better!! Sewing also interviewed Jennifer Baumgartner, author of You Are What You Wear: What Your Clothes Reveal About You (Da Capo Lifelong Books, $16).
Also, check out fashion editor, Michael Quintanilla’s article about a designer from San Antonio appearing at Fashion Week for the first time, Mandi Gallegos.
Finally, I really enjoyed the video from Duchesse's Post called Health: 231/2 hours.
Finally, finally: A Must Read is Jill's post today, http://everythingjustso.blogspot.com/2012/02/impact-50-years-of-cfda.html from the front lines with designers and their style!!
