Last week, Alex went bold with her accessories, lippy, and layering piece.
This week is brought to you by: “faux fur, floral, strappy heels, and skinny jeans”.
And for your viewing pleasure, I give you: faux fur and skinny jeans.
I’ve been feeling “fluffy” recently. Must be all that stress eating and non-treadmill walking I’ve indulged in.
Rather than bemoan this fact, however, I’m choosing to embrace it. After all, in only a handful of months, I’ll be celebrating a birthday with a “5” at the end of it – a milestone, if you will! – and I think I’ve earned the right to love myself and my body unabashedly, fluffiness and all.
Thus, rather than choosing something slimming, I’m taking a cue from Alex and going bold with an in-your-face, non-figure-flattering, Lady Gaga-esque faux fur confection.
I’m not throwing all sartorial caution to the wind, though. I’ll do that when I have a couple more 5s under my belt. For now, I will continue to follow the rule of contrasts and pair my ostentatious jacket with an unassuming pair of go-to skinny jeans. Thanks for the
tip challenge, Alex!
For Selah’s turn next week, I challenge her to the following: pastel, pink, or something Lady Gaga-esque.
Vive le vendredi!
