I don’t think I’ll ever be able to work as a fashion journalist. I adore clothes and their intricate detailing. However I’m in my stubborn state and will never be able write about certain areas that doesn’t excite me. That’s probably why I’ve chosen the route of a blogger rather than pursuing a career as a magazine editor.
I also tend to reach out for safety net way too often, something I’ve decided to change. As such I splurged on this gorgeous warehouse faux leather dress. Something I would happily stroll in back in my teens, though I’ve become more conservative nowadays, but I would like to avoid boring at all costs.
It was my birthday the other week and I received plenty of Debenhams vouchers. Probably one of my favourite high street stores as I can merrily shop in warm environment (anyone else also struggles with the cold wave at the moment?!), as such it comes to no surprise I had to pay a visit asap and I’m so glad I did as I came across some gems!
This Warehouse dress wasn’t the only thing I splurged on, I also awarded myself with a new watch. I know we all have phones nowadays but I sometimes miss this simple accessory so I decided not to prolong it anymore and get one.
I wanted a watch that is simple and petite, just complementing my style enough to realize it’s there but subtle enough not to distract my outfits.
There are social situations in life when it’s not acceptable to be looking at your phone, in my case it would be clients’ meetings. Whilst I might merely want to check I’m on time with presentation or that I have plenty of time to cover all my points, it might seem a bit rude to check my phone. It might send a signal that I’m actually bored.
I also think watch completes the whole look and adds a bit of classiness. The best wristwatches are simple, versatile, sophisticated and classic. A good watch can complete your outfit and say a bit about you.
Through our clothes we paint a picture of who we are or who we would like to be. Whilst we as humans aren’t great at looking at ourselves in a positive light, clothes can change our attitudes and add confidence. Sometimes I think it’s great way to hide our insecurities and can help us to present ourself in better light. Whether that’s good or bad, I’ll leave that to you to decide.
I would like to achieve that wonderful balance where I have clothes that are perhaps a bit controversial and provocative (in a good way) but equally that make me feel comfortable. After all, I can’t conquer the world in a pair of sweats, can I 😉
One last point from me today…I’ve noticed that not many people have been smiling over this festive period. Perhaps it’s the stress to get it all ready and set for Christmas, perhaps not. I have one advice that will not solve your problems, but will definitely make the whole process easier.
Laugh. Laugh more, because…
1) it makes you instantly happier
2) it makes you look confident
Believe it or not, smiling can actually mentally help you to stay afloat, which is something we all need right now. With the cold weather and short days upon us we all need a little cheering.
What makes you smile over this festive period?
