Things One Thinks About While Watching Last Week's Project Runway

I'm afraid I've lost my mojo when it comes to beautifyin'.

I told the hubs at dinner tonight that I don't look like how I feel on the inside.  I look like a MOM!!!  I'm too sassy and amazing to look this frumpy!  My hair...ick--I just can't even think about that now!  My makeup is boring.  BORING, I tell you!  My clothes suck!  (Hello!  I've been wearing the same clothes for the better part of two years and I WAS PREGGERS FOR NINE OF THOSE 24 MONTHS and still wore the SAME clothes.  Thank you very much.)  

I need ... something!

I think my hair is what has started this latest fashion-crisis mode.  You see, my girl, Faith, is an amazing Stylist and I love what she does with my hair.  Usually.  For some reason, ever since last week when she cut and colored it, I haven't been able to make it work. AT. ALL.  I think it's due to "pilot error" as the hubs would say, because Faith's skillz are good.  

So why, oh why has it looked like such crap ever since?  Something is wrong.  Terribly wrong.  

I need help!

I need a distraction.

I need to new clothes.  Anyone got a couple hundred bucks to set me up with some new threads?  You do?  Awww... you're so sweet!  I knew you were an awesome friend!  But until your check clears the bank, let's see what we can find, shall we?....

TOTALLY out of my price range, but oh! so adorable!!!
A basic black pant will take me anywhere...

I love this, but I wish there was a different color, like a deep chocolate brown!
And because I'm nursing, I just had to throw this BLACK number in.  
Not 100% sure about it though.  
Hey look!  It's not black!
This ain't your mama's MOM t-shirt!

I think I could go on and on, but I'm tired, my boys are in bed, and my Project Runway episodes on the DVR are over, so that means it's time for bed.  

  • What to you do when you need to update your look?
  • Where is your "go-to" place to shop for great clothes?
  • Do you think buying cool accessories is enough to reinvent a tired wardrobe?

Peace out.


  1. I'm not a shopper, so I just watch an episode of 'What Not To Wear' and it makes me feel like I'm not so bad after all.

  2. Melis - I have no doubt that your 'mojo' is not gone - you've got style!! And you always look good. Love you.

  3. When I'm strapped for money and need a new look, I check out Old Navy, they usually have some great sales. Otherwise you could try a resale shop or ebay. Hope that helps.

  4. I say go for new shoes...I'm in the same boat right now...blah!

  5. Hey, Melis! I just got my hair cut too, same reasons. I don't wnat to have this "tired, overworked, under slept Mom" look anymore. But this time when she cut it she gave me a look I just can't seem to get a hold of at home! Its annoying!
