So this morning I DID put a dress on, and I HAVE been wearing lipstick all day long and when I left the house today I did feel a lot better about myself... although I was still convinced people were starring at me! And I'm ashamed to say I failed in the footwear department but only because I a) just didn't have any suitable shoes to go with the dress, and b) it was too damn hot to wear anything other than jandels!!
I took some bad photo's in the messy spare room, in the dirty mirror... but I just wanted to give some proof!
Thank you so much for all the tips and encouragement!
Claire: Lipstick is a great idea! Does anybody know how to wear lipstick daily and not have your lips dry out and crack in revenge? As for the heels, well I'm already 5'10 so I tend to save the heels for special occasions otherwise I'm always towering over everybody and it's amazing how much conversation you miss out on like that!
Katie: I would LOVE to wear liquid eyeliner on a daily basis but as of yet I haven't mastered the art of those sexy cat eye's! Anyone have any tips? Lip gloss is also a great idea, I've been meaning to buy some more for ages now. I don't know why I feel self conscious in my dresses, I guess I've been wearing jeans for so long now that I always feel like everybody is starring at me if I wear a dress... which I realise is completely ridiculous!
Rosina Lee: I usually put my hair in pincurls for about half an hour every morning because although I have curls they never naturally behave how I want them to! They are easy to bend into shape though! Sometimes I feel like dressing up/well is more difficult in New Zealand because we have such a casual dress code in general. It makes it easy to get lazy!
Miss Emmi: I agree that keeping it simple and not overly complicated is a good idea... especially in the beginning!
Kristen: It sure feels good to know that I'm not the only one who is feeling like this!
Tomorrow I have to work all day so that means jeans and sneakers, but I am catching up with some friends after dinner so I may just have to do a quick costume change!
Will keep you posted.
