I'm not by ANY definition a fashion plate. If I'm wearing something that's trendy it's more by fluke than design. I never buy/wear something just because it's "in". My criteria is that it's clean, fairly comfortable and hopefully matches. I'm lucky because there is no dress code at work I have the luxury of throwing on jeans and a nice top and I'm dressed. Still, even with those relaxed standards sometimes getting dressed in the morning can be a huge undertaking. And makeup? I don't even own any besides lipstick. We're not even going to discuss the hair. I consider it a victory when I don't look like I stuck my finger in an electrical outlet.
So here I am, little Miss Frump. And I see these women, you know the ones, with not a hair out of place and the 4" heels, the perfectly put together outfit and think how the hell do they do it? How much time and energy do they spend getting ready to leave the house? And how the hell do they continue to look good throughout the day? And how DO they walk in those heels? And I wonder: is it all worth it?
