I never really cared for fashion before I got divorced. You see, I was never really happy with my body, and that really had an effect on my personal style. I was a jeans and t-shirt girl even when I was a teen, and it only got worse as I started having kids. I just didn’t have the time or money to waste on clothes, at least that’s what I always told myself. The truth was I lacked self confidence more than anything. You would think my divorce would have sent me into an even more debilitating mode, but it didn’t. It actually changed everything for me. For the first time in my life I had to figure out who I was, and surprisingly enough, I found out that I am a girl who LOVES clothes (especially dresses).
I had lost a majority of the baby weight before my ex-husband told me he wanted out of the marriage, and I lost an additional fifteen pounds while going through my divorce, so my body was changing and I had the motivation I needed to get back into shape. After that I had no choice but to shop because none of my old clothes fit, and I was slowly learning that I wasn’t that person anyway. So the shopping began. Being a frugal minded person I started at thrift shops and discount stores, and did really well. I found some amazing dresses at even more amazing prices, and so she was born, the dress addict.
Since then I have been focusing my efforts on learning how to pair things in a way that makes a statement. I love most styles so this has been a fun way to showcase my personality. I can be ultra feminine in a white lace dress, a rocker chic in my black boots and jeans, or professional in a pencil skirt and ruffly top. At the end of the day each style represents a piece of who I am, and it is so much fun.
I was recently introduced to a new online shop called BooHoo. At first glance I loved the clothes, but knew it would be out of my price range. Thankfully I was wrong.
These are the items I purchased from BooHoo.com, I would love to hear what you think!
If you are looking for ways to spice up your style don’t forget to check out BooHoo’s Trend Guide! It is full of all of the latest trends for the season, so start stocking up now, I have noticed that they have limited stock and items go quickly. Of all of the different trend styles showcased, Heritage is my favorite set by far. I love the fun and playful use of hats and jackets, and long skirts have always been a favorite of mine for the Fall.
I am such a chameleon when it when it comes to fashion. I always try to dress for the occasion, but in a way that makes me feel comfortable, and like myself.
Here are a few of my favorite looks:
Simple White Cotton Dress: While you may think sweet little dresses like this won’t get you noticed, you would be wrong. It’s easy to change this dress to match your mood, and your surroundings. I usually pair it with flip flops for a trip to the park, but it’s also super cute with cowboy boots, and a cowboy hat er.. cowgirl . It’s comfortable and classic, and can be dressed up or down. I love pieces like this!
So what about you? How would you describe your personal style?
