Throughout my day, as I visit clients, or even when out to lunch, I'm frequently complemented on my outfits.  It's not because I spend a fortune on my clothes.  Far from it.  In fact, rather often you'll find that a good part of my wardrobe is thrifted.  That's right, the Salvation Army is my bff.  Consignment shops, my buddies.  And, like all good relationships, we agree to abide by some rules.

  1. You must love it if you going to buy it.  And I mean LOVE it.  Not just say it'll do for now.
  2. Don't get attached to size.  I'm a 2, 4, 6, 27, 36, 0, XS, S, and shoes 7.5, 8, 8.5 and 38. 
  3. It must fit like it was made just for you.
  4. It must be of good to great quality.
  5. It must make you feel beautiful.
  6. It should be worth what you're paying for it.

I'm not an overly vain person, but I see enough people every day that have the 'given up' look going on.  I can only hope that one day they go into their closet like I did a few years ago and say I don't feel beautiful (or totally badass, if you're a guy or a honey badger) in that.

The above is what we'll be wearing tomorrow.  Many pieces are thrifted, a few were sales so awesome, I'm still gloating years later.  But no matter what, I know I'm going to feel beautiful.

What did you wear today, and how do you feel?
