2011 Resolution #2: Get Dressed

I'm undone, sloppy and saggy. I could buy mom jeans and hang with people 20 years my senior without ever being detected as an outsider. I'd blame it on the time of year, but I'm pretty sure I went to parent teacher conferences in my pajamas in October.

Thankfully friends are already coming to my aid, offering things like hair treatments, cute sample clothes and even a comprehensive image consultation from Denver's own Milena Joy. I had to do some fashion homework in advance, but learned some fantastic style and color tips that I simply need to apply. Milena was great to talk to and my friend Melissa is completely satisfied with her recent personal shopping experience. Plus, she doesn't scramble with manic wardrobe choices everyday (which is probably why I started wearing pajamas as daywear in the first place).

Though I don't yet have the coin to smack down for personal shopping trip, Milena offers a free service every 3rd Wednesday (via appointment) where she'll help you find the perfect pair of jeans from The Blues Jean Bar in Denver. This could be a good thing, especially considering my hub's comments about g-strings poking out from behind some of my current jeans. Gaaa, he should be happy I have some on, right?

Bottom line: I already have some clothes I love that make me feel great, I just need to dig them out more frequently and enjoy a good Vogue or Elle now and again. And do the very best you can with what you've got... including those current measurements. It sounds easy on paper, but application will be the key for me in 2011. I think Popeye said it best, "I am what I am..."
