Mom Knows Best!

How does someone know if they like or love something?

You know that moment when you are walking past a store and all the sudden you stop to glare back at something that you just fell in love with the first time you saw it. It has defiantly happened to me..multiple times. You know you will walk out the mall with that one item you promised yourself..NOTHING ELSE! You take a closer look. And its completely wrong! The fabric itches. Its completely see through. Its too short. Too long. Its pattern isn’t what you thought it was. Or it costs as much as you make in a month. Its disappointing and the mannequin was made to pull anything off..remember that.

Looks can fool a girl…through glass but specially through the computer screen. Sometimes the websites may fool you to buy things you think you love but actually might be the opposite. Models look amazing in the clothes. DUH. But they are there to sell you the clothes. telling you “‘I’m having fun in these clothes. I look good in it,so you will too!”. DON’T EVER compare yourself to a mannequin. That’s part of the trick system of the fashion industry. Once you go home with those new shopping bags and you take the clothes out to try them on one more time…you either instantly love them or instantly say “What was I thinking?”..BUT there are ways to avoid the regret.

First, when you think you are “In love”❤️ with that shirt. You need to try in on! Don’t assume you’ll love everything about it just because you love the pattern or the fabric. Second, get a second honest opinion! Don’t ask one of the employees because they will tell you to buy it anyways! You will probably hear, “YEAH, GIRL, That looks cute on you!” and they may be telling you the truth but other half of time they say anything to get you to buy it.Bring a friend or take a mirror selfie and text it to one of your friends or even better…Your mom. Like it or not, Mom knows best!

When Online, First,  you have to really know what size you are in that particular store. Second, again..don’t compare yourself with the models and try to picture yourself wearing the piece and make an outfit.

I love Fashion! I love clothes! but just like everything else…It can be misleading from a far.


Bursting with Joy!

I hope everyone had an awesome holiday season and a great start into this new year!

2016 is Here! and that doesn’t necessarily mean a new you, new life, new resolutions, but another fresh start with new opportunities and new morals. January 1 was the day many people around the world look back at their life and decide what they want to change such as their habits or routines. But today is January 9 and I really wonder who will follow through. New Years isn’t really the time to tell yourself that you’ll exercise more or save more but to ask yourself, “What do I really want to change about myself?”

Your answer is more likely to stick rather than your “promises” to yourself.

How does this apply to your fashion choices. Well, it sorta doesn’t but one real issue that we all have to surpass is OUR CLOSET! Yes, its time! Haven’t worn it the last 6 months..? Throw it out even if you told yourself weeks ago that you’ll wear it “someday” yet still haven’t. No matter how many times you stare at you closet or count the many pieces of clothes you will always tell yourself those 5 little words.”I have nothing to wear!” but you do! I promise. This is the time to be creative. Once you throw out, it may seem that you threw out everything and only left like 7 shirts, but the truth is that you don’t have to fill every empty space in your closet! Trust me! its not fun! Having the relief of a new start including a new blank space in your closet is a great feeling! I’m not saying that shopping isn’t necessary which it is in Girl World. But The amount of clothes you have doesn’t define you. Plus you do have to make room for those summer clothes.

Having a closet bursting with clothes is for Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian to deal with. 🙂
