Well in researching this post I came across some really interesting tidbits in old articles. This comes from McCall's 1920 by Suzanne Sheldon via Old Magazine Articles.com. I don't recommend doing the eye wash unless you consult a physician. Even in the present day allot of this is true. Good dietary habits , physical activity and lots of water are indeed key to a good complexion. Though some this article will make you chuckle. Though I wonder if the chin bandage works. I believe Joan Crawford was a believer in the chin bandage of course no wire hanger for her. So take a look at this article tell me what you think. We will be talking a little bit about rebelling through fashion tomorrow.
This week we decided to celebrate 1920's. We will get decked out and do the Charleston. We will look at the beauty regimes of the era. I want to look at body image of that time. Feminism was also starting to become more public. Women bobbed there hair and raised those hem lines. Everyday we will look at the era. I think it will be interesting to learn some new things. Our looks of the day will be strictly 20's themed. I will have my laptop back .
I am once again blogging from my iPod watching television. I just ate some sliced apples and peanut butter. This Friday night can't even get more exciting. Though Im eagerly anticipating the Saint Patty's Day parade this weekend.
So if you have been following the " Laptop Crisis of 2014" You'll know that my hard drive died yesterday . I handed my baby over to the computer doctor. Now my poor little iPod is going to be working overtime this weekend. Monday I will be reunited with my computer new hard drive to me a new identity. Since I backed everything up I'm not freaking out . So as daunting this is in the positive aspect I get a clean slate.
My readers have asked that I talk about style a bit more. So I've been catching up with things. It's kinda like when you used to watch a soap opera. In a couple episodes you remember the storyline are quintessentially caught up. We keep it very real here I thought maybe I'd sell out a little but I just couldn't do it .
So as I venture back into the fashion blogging community who loves me ( They totally don't ) I notice that there is an awful allot of envy generating posts with expensive luxe items being treated like you too can own this . Honestly it isn't always the case the designers and PR companies hook them up. Not all the time but sometimes they don't purchase the merchandise.
Most bloggers will give you a heads up that its a gift. So keep that in mind when you start contemplating skipping a car payment to get a pair of shoes. I know I do look some of these and say where do all these rich people come from? Remember not to compare and dispair fashion is not a cheap. Dont think of them as what you have to be. I look at them as my super fabulous friend who knows whats going on. Though take a look out there see whats going on do your own thing. Even fashion industry people are inspired by regular people that rock there own style. Wear happiness and youll always look amazing. (you can tell I missed everyone so much )
I am not a very materialistic person though I like looking hip and happening. Well I got hit with the affluennza bug. Charlotte Olympia has the most darling cat shoes. When I first discovered them on many bloggers sites. They all had them looking sassy and chic. So in my head I thought oh maybe 40.00 no ladies hold on your hats. These purrfect shoes are over $400.00 and upwards. Honestly I hadn't been lust with a shoe in a longtime. So last night I painted my own version on a old pair of shoes. I won't even tell you how happy this made me. I guess I've been having to cut back so much I finally got just have something fun. I proudly wore them out and about today.
So I wore some happy today. Just remember like the song says " you got to be you , so just chill to the next episode"
Who thought I quote Snoop Doggy Dog aka Snoop Lion I did and it felt good. See you tomorow for look of the day.
