Thursday and the big bad ole cold

Yes, I had a cold, and I still have a cold. But it is amazing what a little(lot)of make-up can do. In the past I have been prone to go into bitchy whiny mode when a cold shows up. Or when I just don't feel good. But they say that insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. So I decided to go ahead with the pics and the dressing thing and see if there was any difference. And there was.

Oh sure, I still have the cold. And I am still taking otc's for it. And I still drip, etc. But it didn't hurt me to get up and get dressed and get the hair done and make the bed(that goes with get up and get dressed) and find some jewelry and take some pics. I wish I could say that it turned the cold around and that it is now gone. I would really like to say that. But, oh well. Still have the cold but at least I look better sick than I used to.

I have done some reading of the different blogs on the website. I have discovered a few things. First, skinny jeans look uncomfortable. I am glad I don't have to wear them. Second, the big clunky shoes that are being worn now wouldn't work for me. I can't afford a broken hip. Third, the wonderful ladies of advanced style are great role models but I don't live in NYC, I don't have an extensive wardrobe,(except jewelry), and I don't have any place to go. At least no place that needs things that dressy. Fourth, I don't like hats, on me. They look awesome on the ladies of NYC and on the Style Crone. But I don't like anything that binds. I have a large head and I have a hard enough time getting glasses to fit. Anyway, no hats. And fifth, I have a lot of pretty clothes and I think one thing I needed to accessorise them with was a smile. For some reason I have never been a really smiley person. But with the urging of my blog friends I am working on that too.

So you and your blogs have helped me come to a place where I am OK with me. I am Ok with my attempts at being fashionable. And with your continued help I am going to be a happy camper.

Thanks for listening.

Good for you, acting "as if" you didn't have a cold. It does help to spiff up a bit, even when we don't feel like it. Love the top on you...good color.
