The Secret To Being and Feeling Fashionable Revealed…

Last week I started writing a post about wanting a make over. I was feeling in a rut about my “look” and wondered what do to…

Then I realised something, the secret to fashion is confidence. Change it up, embrace wearing the things you want to wear and be confident. So I did, and it was great!

Simple, right?

I’ve had the same hair for years…and years…and years…so I set myself a little challenge: to wear my hair in pigtails everyday for a week. The first day it felt really strange, but after a few days it felt good, fun, normal!

It’s also helped me make a big hair decision…I’m excited.

Oh, and I’m also embracing pink lipstick.

What makes you feel fashionable? What would make you feel more confident about how you look?

    • Oh yes! Having so much colour around at the moment makes it easier to try something out without feeling like you are sticking out like a sore thumb. A nice scarf or pair of shoes to add a bit of colour – then you can see how you like it. I can see you wearing a nice pink or blue something xx

  1. Gorgeous Louisa!!

    I had a similar thought the other day at the beach. Being female, I am always checking out the other females. And I realised that the ones I thought were the most ‘beautiful’ weren’t the skinniest or most ‘gorgeous’ – they were the ones who carried themselves with confidence.

    Ergo – it is confidence that is beautiful, not anything else!

  2. Confidence is definitely key…something I’m lacking!
    But I love those pigtails – so so cute!
    I reckon I might try lipstick – I don’t wear make up at all – so lipstick may make me feel more feminine!

    • What could you do that would make you feel more confident Bec?
      I am loving the lipstick – my tip is commit to wearing it for a week and mix up the shades you try. If you’ve not been a regular lipstick wearer (like myself) then it takes a bit of getting used to but once you do, you will love it! Well…I do anyway :)

      • I tried the lipstick but it keeps rubbing off! What’s the tip to keep it on?
        I tried pigtails too – I love yours…but I just cant’ get it neat at the back. Looks okay at the front but the back is all messy. I reckon I spent 20 minutes trying to do it this morning (I tried platts too – they were cute – but too messy for my liking).

        • I LOVE that you tried pigtails Bec. Two tips for you – the first, don’t look at the back! I never do :) The way I get around it is to keep it a bit loose at the back so you don’t get a big “line” where the part should be, seems to work and I’m gettng better at getting it straight too. Re the lipstick, a couple of mine wipe off quickly too so I use a lipliner underneath them which helps keep the colour there, the other option is to get a long lasting lipstick – I have a L’Oreal one which is pretty good and have just ordered a Stila Lip Ink (http://www.beautybay.com/cosmetics/stila/g/crushlipcheekstain/) which stains the lips, keeping the colour on for longer (but not too long!) In store the Stila ones are about $35 but I got one at that link for $20 + free postage which is about what a good lipstick costs. Hope that helps a bit!

  3. I’m feeling rather fashion challenged myself, ever since falling pregnant the first time 4 years ago. I agree eith confidence though a few new looks after years of none, does help. So I’ve coloured and cut my hair much shorter for a change. Look forward to your new idea after pigtails.
