I go back and forth thinking about writing a blog. I have so much going on in my "wacky" head and yearn to write it all down. So, here it goes...
I was born a girly girl, or so my Mother tells me. I have always had memories of liking "girly" things. From a young age I was enamored with older, glamorous Women. I always wanted to wear make-up, I only wanted to wear skirts that twirled around when I spun, my hair had to look perfect, and at the age of 2, my clothes had to match.
I'm a trained hairstylist and it once was my passion. I'm not sure if it is anymore. I haven't worked in a Salon for about 5 years and not sure how I feel about it anymore. I think about hair, it's what I look at when first meeting someone, but not sure if it's the career for me... right now. I'm a stay at home Mom who sometimes battles with that title. I think I need to figure out what I want to do.
The Fashion Industry is always on my mind. How people look, how they're dressed, or just what looks good on people and myself is something I can't get away from. I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said FIDM "Mom". It's like one of those bumper stickers that is like Air force "Mom", or NAU "Mom". I wanted my Mom to have this sticker on her car. For those of you that don't know, it the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. It could be a possibility one day, but for now I will try and find something else to keep me occupied.
A couple Months ago I was asked by a dear friend to go shopping with her. She was going on a romantic getaway to Europe with her Husband. She asked if I would tell her what to buy. Of course, I think this friend has great taste to begin with, she just needed the extra oomph to boost her confidence on what to buy. Well, I had one of the best times of my life on this trip! It's like I was on a Personal Shopper High! We went to Macys, The Gap, and Marshalls (shopping is limited here). I picked out a few things here and there. Some she was into, others she didn't want to go near, but all and all she felt very confident in what I picked. She ended up with a fab wardrobe of clothes that she would have never bought on her own. So, I think this is what I want to do. I want to help people feel confident in what they wear. I want this to be realistic. I am a Military Wife, I don't have the biggest budget, but I think I do my best to look good and stylish and I think I can help others as well.
I'm not sure how I'll go about this... I will search all over the area in what I think is "hot" right now, take pics, give advice and post it all on my new blog. :) Thanks
