if I were fancy...

Can we have a moment of the "get reals"??

Raise your hand if you read fashion blogs and then go stare at yourself in the mirror for a minute and think....

"Jeez, I wish I was that fancy"

I am so jealous of people that care enough to put a comb through their hair in the morning.... or slap on some make-up, let alone put together a full outfit and then take photos of it!

I can barely get my ass to the mall to buy underwear, let alone an outfit.

My new years resolution...for next year, is to try and be a bit more fancy...




1/2./3/4/5/6/7/8/9

That is what I would wear...

  4. Amber you probably look just great; after all we are not all models. The one thing I like to do no matter the time of year is put on a pair of earrings, I just "feel" more together!

  5. I too am in awe of the hair brushing and put-togetherness. Even when I try I look like I just rolled out of bed.

  7. Hahaaaa- love it! You are so right. I cannot comprehend how one can manage an updo five out of seven days a week. I've decided that those fashion bloggers take their pictures all in one day and then make it look like they were that fancy for a full week. There's just no way! But GREAT earrings you've selected.

  8. Don't sweat it too much. That's their primary job. They prolly lay around in sweats and holey t-shirts after their shot's are taken. ;) I'd much rather be grungy and
    low-may most days and then "clean-up really well" when it's necessary. I couldn't imagine taking my photos with crap loads of bangles on my arms and clothing that couldn't get knocked around a bit. That striped dress is ADORABLE. Good find :)

  11. Which is why I don't have pics of me on my blog. If I did it would be a pick of me in a swim suit that doesnt really fit properly with my hair in a bun, no make-up and a glass of wine in my hand (hence the swim suit not fitting). But I'm a happy girl that way!!! Blowing my locks out to look perfect, i hate that shit!!!! You are perfect just the way you are Amber!

  13. Ugh I sometimes wish I could even afford some new outfits. Then I gotta give myself a slap and make myself realize that we just can't at the moment and it's ok. I just gotta be more creative! I do have some great pieces. And diy is my best friend.

  14. Hand raised way high over here. Today I rolled out of bed, put on a robe, and went to my desk. I didn't brush my teeth til 11am. It was SEXY.

  16. I think that is why I love the fashion blogs so much, they send me, if just for a minute to an other-world where I'm not surrounded by a crying demanding child, mountains of laundry and stacks of dishes, they send me to a world when I didn't have to stress about finding time for myself, because I always had time for myself.

    After I've finished, and come back to the real world I look at myself in the mirror and think, yeah that world was fun... but this world is so much better!!

    :P Hope you are doing something glamorous today, love the #7 wedges! I always buy wedges but never wear them, such a waste, but they just make me so damn tall!!
