what i (secretly) love::fashion
i think this goes hand in hand with my secret love of makeup. i dont buy "fashion magazines" but if i see a picture of a fashion that i dream of wearing but will probably never do so in my life, i tear it out and ferret it away somewhere. i am nowhere near a fashionista. i think if i could i would wear jeans and tshirts everyday of my life, except of course for all those gorgeous gala gowns i would have to pull out now and then. yeah right. i wish i had a more original sense of style, i like to attribute my lackluster fashion performance to work. or more specifically the work wardrobe. i hate business and business casual (bleh) dress codes (but i would dearly love to own a really really really sharp, and expensive suit). economy forces me to straddle that line between acceptable for work and something i would like to wear on the weekend, because who can afford to have two sets of clothes, or really want that many clothes anyway? of course what ends up happening is that i end up with the worst of both. see above note about the suit. sometimes i think i could fix things with a well placed piece of jewelry or some other accessory, but my fledgling sense of style gets freaked out and back i go to jeans and tees. but i do love shoes. shoes can be outlandish and impractical and still go with a pair of jeans. i can break out in the shoe department. ah shoes. i love you. speaking of a freaking awesome sense of style, have you seen this picture? love that girl...
