I had an interesting talk with a friend about women and our bodies earlier this week. I was fretting again that posting pictures of my daily outfits is narcissistic. She was pointing out that in our society, the media, etc., we are conditioned to want to be thin, pretty, stylish, young. And yet we are not supposed to show the effort involved. We’re not supposed to be vain, and it’s supposed to look effortless. They’re conflicting messages. I think she had a good point. And if I think about it too much, it will scramble my brain, so I’m going to stop worrying about the whole narcissist thing and just have fun with my fashion journey.
I really, really wanted a denim blazer. Saw one on someone on Pinterest and loved it. I couldn’t find one anywhere, so I went to eBay and saw one for twenty bucks. But it wasn’t new — pre-owned made me nervous. But I sometimes buy second-hand stuff at second-hand stores, right? And the post promised it was in great condition with no odor (gross!). So, I ordered it. Great decision! (I’m also wearing a Free People tunic, leggings, and Ralph Lauren boots.)
