I came up with this little theory after
wasting hours of my life investing much time looking through magazines. My favorite is the local CVS Pharmacy. The magazine aisle is directly across from the toy aisle. Genius. The kids gawk and whine about what they want, and I tune them out while flipping through magazines. It's the key to good mothering. *wink wink*
I like the pics when they catch celebs (who you KNOW have been dressed by a stylist no matter how casual they may look) with outfits that make me go hmmm, woulda never put that together, but it looks pretty good.
My style theory and these, my favorite of all dolls, have something in common. They're both cute...and a littlebit ugly all at the same time. Don't deny it, you know it's true.
On with my point: So when I was shopping with friends the other night, I grabbed a shirt and said, "I like this...it's cute...and a littlebit ugly" ...that's how I choose.
Deep isn't it.
My style tip: Something in my outfit should border on the littlebit ugly side. You know, be a little weird, a little off...
Not too weird, now. Too weird puts you into the "what the heck?!?" category...a littlebit ugly gives you your own sense of style. Makes an otherwise boring outfit look interesting.
Be creative...but not too creative...and most important of all....put on some confidence with that littlebit ugly fine fashion accessory. :)
My sweater today: *sorry about the terrible picture* Cute and a littlebit ugly. I kid you not.
Oooh, and if you currently wear anything that's a littlebit ugly and you LOVE it because it works, please please do tell!
