As a gal who adores fashion, is a bit of a shopaholic and has a daily style blog, I'd like to think of myself as a pretty open-minded person when it comes to trying new things in the name of fashion. Cropped harem pants? Check. Super chunky platforms? Done. Dayglo everything? Yes and un-huh (pay no attention to the the crazy hair ...).
But when it comes to something I've already made up my mind about? Fuggedaboutit.
For most of my life - literally - I almost never wore skirts or dresses. I was a shy nerdy athlete growing up and always felt self-conscious about my legs because I had pretty muscular calves that were nicknamed "mango calves" by my friends at school. Plus skirts and dresses were "girlie" and "precious" and that's the last thing I was.
So it was literally not until I started my blog - this blog - that I finally began branching out and started snatching up skirts. My legs, that I wanted to hide when I was younger, was suddenly one of my best personal assets.
What happened? Seeing all you ladies in blogdom looking so good in your frilly skirted frocks. Realizing that it's been years since I've tried baring my legs and maybe it wouldn't be that bad if I did.Thinking that maybe I could look good too. And the worst that could happen?
Enter blogging Lisa, present-day.
I've conquered skirts, dresses, accessorizing, stilettos, red lips, skinny jeans, colored bottoms. And today I can cross "camo" off my mental sartorial blacklist too.
What are you trying lately that's sartorially new for you? Are there still styles or pieces you're still not ready or willing to at least consider?
