Taking Chances in Fashion

Mes cheris sometimes you must take chances in fashion, in dating, and in general. Think of the boy that got away because you never showed how you felt, the city you never lived in because home was where you were "supposed" to be. Now stop. Think of where'd you be if you took chances, threw chance to the wind and said "I'm going to make that happen" and low and behold it does.

Sometimes the risk is scary, but it is supposed to be, if it wasn't it wouldn't be a risk. But you don't get the reward without the leap, the reward is all in the risk. Its only for the people foolish enough to go 100 miles an hour toward their dreams and grab it for themselves. You may end up married to your prince, or living in a foreign country, or singing to 1,000 people 3 nights a week, but it will all be a greater story and a fuller life than your typical clocked night of TV watching from your home of some-odd decades. Take the risk.

In fashion there are risks too. You may not always have a home-run outfit. Where do you think the Worst Dressed List comes from? There have been many a day where by 2pm when I actually stop for 2 seconds to look in the mirror I think...Wow I wish I had a do-over on this outfit. You don't always walk out of the house looking like Carrie Bradshaw. But the success comes from the experimentation.

What is your fashion fear? That trend that you are dying to wear, not because you are not at the right figure or income, but merely because its scary. For me its the unknown realm of the belly shirt! (Eeek)!! I was never allowed to wear the midriff shirts in school growing up, back when they were in style last, now they are back and I'm super excited to finally pull them off. But I'm nervous, I keep thinking I look like I'm wearing too little, like I'm saying too much by wearing half a shirt. But I love the look on others...pourquoi?

So this Summer I am going to go for it. Throw two sheets to the wind and sail away on a confident and stylish boat of crop tops! So tell me my dears...

What are you afraid of?

I'm afraid of dying without achieving and seeing all I want to achieve/see! Have a great Thursday doll! Kori xoxo

Definitely go for it! I like crop tops, too, but don't know if I could still pull one off as well as I used to (you know, the last time they were 8 years ago)! :) Here's a silly trend that has been around for a long time now, but I haven't been able to do yet- skinny jeans! I know, ridiculous, but I could never find a pair that looked good on me. Luckily, I finally found a pair this morning, but I still have to muster up the courage to wear them out! Not sure why I'm so hesitant to wear them, but I must give them a shot! :)

My fashion fear used to be skinny jeans...they looked really bad on me. But finally I got over it, found a pair that was flattering and went for it! Now I love them! All that to say - go for the crop tops!

Injections, they make me weak in the knees.

In fashion, I'm afraid of the midriff too. I don't have the best midsection but I'll try to wear it. :)

Mucho love.
