There is no excuse not to be cute!

Hello LADIES!! I know, I know, it has been a while, geez, over 2 weeks since my last post. You know, the mood had not struck me for a while. But last weekend was my last hoorah before the Fall sets in and I have to start traveling to Gamma Phi Beta chapters. During my VERY social weekend, I did have an opportunity to go to the U2 concert at Soldier Field in Chicago. Great concert, but for my $100 ticket, I could have used a little less Bono waxing poetic about his political views and little more singing songs like New Year's Day, Pride and Bad, but all in all good concert. BTW, someone told me that they had to re-sod Soldier Field because the stage ripped up the field. HA, that one made me laugh, GOOD ONE BONO.

Anyway, I found myself making this statement to the red head as we were leaving the concert. UMMM, there is just NO excuse not to be cute and it doesn't take a lot of money to be cute. Here is what I mean, ladies, if your outfits/clothing are any of the following: dorky, faded, out of date or don't fit right, please don't wear them. And I don't mean that you have to be a fashion plate or spend thousands of dollars, but there is just no excuse not to have some cute clothes, no matter what your body type or age. I have seen countless attractive women in dorky clothes, like mom jeans or shorts with socks and gym shoes. FIRST, my mom doesn't even wear mom jeans, and they don't need to come 1/2 up your chest. SECOND, leave the shorts with socks and gym shoes for the gym. If you are going to a sporting event or something of that nature, wear shorts with cute (but comfortable) sandals.

Our friends at In Style and Glamour can help with you some ideas of clothing that is in style. Notice, I did not say Vogue, Women's Wear Daily or Elle, I find that those magazines have such haute couture that it doesn't appeal to everyday gal. OR do some google searches, OMG, there is so much information out there. So, first step, pick out some styles you like in the magazine or online. Second step, go to Target, Kohls, TJ Maxx, Marshalls (if you have patience), Off Fifth Saks, Last Call Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom Rack, etc and pick out some clothing. You don't have to spend a fortune, make sure you set a budget. Third step, take a friend with you for opinions (or the sales person can help), make sure the style works on you. No buttons or zippers should be pulling or gapping. Make sure you have the appropriate bra and underwear for the outfit and if you don't, you might need to buy them. Make sure it does not extenuate a "problem area". OK, done shopping? LAST step, put on your new sassy clothes and go out, be cute and sassy.

Ladies seriously, this is not rocket science, find a few cute pieces and go with it. And if you have stuff hiding in your closet (like I do), pull it out, maybe an older fashion just needs a new belt or shoes to be a new fashion. I just HATE to see some of you out there looking dorky, take it from it, it doesn't take much to cute and fabulous. FIND your inner fashion maven!
