summer reruns: bloganistas

Another one from the way-back blog machine, a post from Jan 2010 in which I become aware that I've turned into a fashion frump and attempt to do something about it:
...............................................................



look at the outfits, ignore the squalor

There's been a lot of fashion apathy around here in the last few months. I mean, I know I should always put more emphasis on my inward beauty and not so much on the outward, but there's a lot to be said for getting out of the pajamas and combing the hair every once in a while. My husband certainly appreciates it.

So to keep myself a bit more accountable in the Showered And Dressed Dept. I joined the bloganistas group I mentioned in the last post. If you are a blogger and you have a wardrobe you'd like to share, by all means, join up. I need all the help I can get.

Oh, yeah, I just ordered this Built By Wendy pattern. I'm looking forward to trying a tunic or dress for myself from it!

...............................................................

And gently fading into white, and tada! Back in 2011. I have to confess. I didn't last long as a bloganista contributor. However, I did reach my goal of being more put together. The problem was having to record my outfits. Taking good photographs of myself was a continual problem. Lighting, mirrors, camera timers, finding a corner of the house that looked clean. I still look at the group for fashion inspiration, and especially Ivy, my WORD I love everything she wears.

  2. Even though this is an old post, I think it is inspiring me. I hate being in the mom rut of jeans and t's, and i was just thinking that I needed a boost. (and i also think i need that yellow scarf!!)
