How to get dressed up when you hate being uncomfortable and/or dressing up. 👍🏻
THE BEAUX ART OF DRESSING UP/DOWN
[I hate uncomfortable clothes. I literally cant. - Me]
Every time I stress about getting dressed (which is every time) I stand in front of my closet panicking. I waste a lot of time pantless in front of potential outfits. SO. I have created a beaux style rule of thumb to help me chill the f out and get myself dressed:
One nice statement designer item, and everything else should either save the environment (vtg/ebay/secondhand/sustainable/eco) or money (non-designer).
All should be comfortable.
One more time for myself: one splash out item, everything else mix and matched.
Normal transition here: today is my birthday. Wooo! except omg I have to dress myself nicely for dinner. Ahhhh! Oh wait I have a plan for emergency situations. The Beaux Recipe. Crisis averted, no problem!
My one nice designer item: THESE SHOES FROM THE ROW. I'm dying I'm dead. Dream shoes HALLLOOO! So bc its my birthday and much like Liz lemon I was thinking about going to the gym later so I figured I deserved a treat. A THE ROW Treat. So that is the foundation for my birthday outfit, and the rest is history.
"Welcome to your dirty 30s ASHLEY!" "Oh Thanks, myself!"
Ps, obviously never without my Baby Blondie from The Beaux Store.
