Yes, we are already into the second month of the year, but I hate to announce that I'm going to do something and then fail the first week. The year 2010 is, for me, the year I accessorize.
This may seem small, but for someone who barely uses make-up, it's huge. I've pulled out my old jewelry and been through it, pulling out pieces I should be wearing. I've pulled out scarves, but put them back...my neck is too short and fat.
I bought a watch. I'm wearing it today. I haven't looked at it, but I'm wearing it. I'm also wearing a bracelet on my right wrist.
How and why did I decide to post this now? Well, let me explain the process. I was reading something on http://www.emailsfromcrazypeople.com by a graduate of the University of Alabama. This made me think of my brother-in-law's sister, Sonja (she's not crazy, but she is a UofA grad).
Sonja is one of those women that I think of when I think of "women in sales". Perfectly coiffed hair, perfect make-up, deep tan, fabulous wardrobe. And always great accessories.
I'd like to be more like her, but concealer, base, and powder is about as far as I go these days unless for make-up. I haven't had a tan in 30 years. My hair doesn't muss, I have that going for me. But I always look like a slept in my clothes. I iron them, steam them, whatever, then put them on...and they rumple. It's a family trait, my sister has the same problem.
But I decided that I could look more put together. I'm working on it. I'm trying. Ask me in a few months how it's going.
