My Favorite Things!

February.05.2010 | Misc

I love the beginning of the year. Wedding season won’t start for another few months which gives me time to reboot, refresh, and rejuvenate myself..mentally, spiritually, and physically. That’s right..I’ve rededicated myself to taking better care of myself on the inside and the outside. I started going to Bootcamp and I have to say I’m feeling better already! 2010 is my year to be the best that I can be and I’m going to stick to it!

I don’t know about you..but when I’m not feeling 100% about my body, I tend to let everything else slide. In my 20′s when I was feeling my best, you can bet that I wore makeup, did my hair, and dressed fashionably. Now that my body isn’t like it used to be, my hair is looking blah, I only wear makeup once in a blue moon, and my clothes..don’t even let me talk about that! It’s a good day if I’m not wearing sweatpants and a mismatching top!

Well, that is going to change..NOW! I’ve ALWAYS loved fashion..always always ALWAYS! Even when I didn’t feel like buying new clothes because I swore that I was going to lose 20 pounds and wouldn’t be able to fit them. Anytime I would feel that shopping itch, I would always buy shoes because 1. they make me happy 2. they will fit no matter how much I weigh :-) But not anymore..now that I’m dedicated to losing the weight that I’ve been wanting to lose for the past 5 years..that’s right 5 YEARS, my wardrobe is in desperate need of an overhaul!

I’ve had a lot of fun cyber shopping and found quite a few things that I absolutely adore..mainly dresses! I love dresses and If I could wear a dress every day, I would! However, that would be super boring of me to do that so I won’t :-)

Here are some of my favorites..let me know which one is yours! Also, if you have favorites shopping sites that you think I would like, please leave a comment and let me know! I’m always looking for places to get unique and cute clothes!

I forgot where I found this dress but I absolutely ADORE it! So much so that I’m thinking of contacting one of the fab dress makers on Etsy to make one for me!

Since I didn’t know the designer of the dress above, I tried to find something similar. I found the lovely dress below at Bergdorf Goodman..now if I just had a couple of thousand dollars lying around, I might just buy it ;-)

I’m pretty sure I found this dress on This Is Glamorous..I love it! Although I think this dress would only look good on someone who was 6ft tall :-)

I adore this outfit..cute, chic, and fun!

I found the next few dresses on EDressMe. They are from Kirribilla and are adorable in every way…if I could get all of them I would! I can’t though so I just got the one below :-) I love it SO MUCH! Pencil skirts are my absolute favorite!

How precious is this??

The next few dresses are from a fab designer on Etsy..check out reddoll by tm!

Love this lilac dress..the black belt is the perfect touch!

this dress is to DIE for..I’m not quite sure I can pull it off now that I’m in my 30′s but damn..it’s cute!

Okay..so this dress is like 20 inches too short..lol! But, if you pair it with some black tights, you’re good to go! Better yet, if it was knee length and had a pencil skirt instead of the ruffle bottom, it would be oh-so-chic!

I hope you liked the first installment of “My Favorite Things”..I’m not quite sure it will be a permanent fixture on my blog but I definitely will be posting more things that I love, things that inspire me, and things that make me happy! Have a great weekend everybody!

Catherine: OMG, I feel the same!  I definitely weigh more now than I did 5 years ago and want to lose 15-20 lbs.  My logic about buying clothes was the same, but I started buying a little here and there and it made me try harder at this weight.  In doing so, I am more aware of my body and I feel more motivated lose the weight!   High five for joining boot camp.  I want to join one, but I can´t do it early in the mornings. Anyway, I like the following websites www.shopruche.com www.lulus.com www.lovemaegan.com - I love Megan´s style www.anthroholic.blogspot.com - if you love Anthro February 7, 2010 10:52 am
