“I loathe narcissism, but I approve of vanity.”
Are you a fashionista? The Collections in UK Harper’s Bazaar February 2017 is certainly for fashionistas. It highlights this season’s standout pieces from various collections. I didn’t necessarily start out as a fashionista, though I always maintained a classic and feminine style. Over time, I kept to fitted silhouettes, timeless cuts with modern twists, and the occasional fun print. I paid more attention to fashion and my appearance though. Usually I updated my look with a statement necklace, great hat, or beautiful shoes. Eventually, I also started learning about and applying a little makeup. I started paying more attention to looking good and feeling good.
I thought Diana Vreeland’s quote about narcissism and vanity were really interesting. No one likes a narcissist. But, we are allowed a free pass to be a little vain. After I first had my little one, I was home for the first two months wearing my husband’s oversized shirts. I was too tired to make an effort. But, in time, I started feeling like myself again. I wore my nicer clothing a little bit more. I also started to wear my favorite hats and accessories again. So go out, look great, and be a little vain.
Have a lovely week!
