Wednesday a lady walked into the club whose appearance was "practicaly perfect in every way". Her hair was perfect. Her makeup was perfect, and her outfit was, you guessed it, perfect. She was wearing a pink wool jacket that appeared to be made for her under which she wore a light pink cami and the most awesome pair of black dress pants I have ever seen. They too seemed to be made just for her and there was a kick pleat type cut in the back of each leg. She also had on a matching pink pearl necklace and earring set. She was put together so well and it made me so jealous. (To top it off, she was super sweet.) I have never been one of those people. I always feel frumpish and thrown together even on my best days. My outfits aren't much to look at considering I work at a gym. Is there really anyway to look fashionable in gym clothes? My hair and makeup are at best average on most days. I suppose I shouldn't be too hard on myself. Waking up at 5 a.m. doesn't allow for much primping time. I guess I'm not really in search of the look as I am the confidence behind the look. I want to feel put together and not so frumpish even while working in a gym. I know it has nothing to do with the clothes or the hair or makeup and everything to do with what you feel on the inside. I'm working on that part too.

It would be nice to be more stylish, wouldn't it? I work in a very conservative office so I can't dress as stylish as I'd like. I use my weekends (days off) as times I can experiment and go crazy with the make-up, hair and clothes. J goes with the flow. :)

I usually save it all for the weekends too. I acctually fixed my hair for work today rather than throwing it into a pony tail. It feels good to glance in the mirror and see it styled.

I've seen those women who always look so neat.
I don't think I could look that way if I tried (even really hard).

I always admire them just don't wanna be them. I'm just me.

I don't really want to be them or even look like them. I just want to feel put together instead of odd and out of place. It's difficult to explain. You now how you feel when you have a head cold and everything just feels blah..that's me on a daily basis. Odd..out of place..wierd... I feel like Josie Grossy in "Never Been Kissed".
