Looking Good : Your Fashion 'Uniform'

Read the preceeding article here: Look As Beautiful As You Are

So, having acknowledged, however reluctantly, the benefit to spending two seconds a day caring for ourselves in pursuing putting our own best-shod feet forward, we then need to come up with a way of accomplishing this in a foll-proof, fuss-proof manner. The basis of the No-fuss Totally Together plan is to simplify to the point of creating a standard “uniform.” (If I were uber cheesy I’d call it a “you-niform”). It helps to know yourself well--what styles, colors, and shapes are flattering on you and, more importantly, make you feel attractive and comfortable, knowing what actually works as your standard uniform, what you’re likely to maintain, what will undoubtedly fall by the wayside in the first half-second after leaving the store or salon You know, embracing and enhancing your own truest self. As we discussed in the previous article, some women’s true selves do depend on elaborate, labor intensive coifs, do’s, and dresses. This article is aimed at those of us who would, utterly without shame, luxuriate in secondhand scrubs, though we’ve no association with the medical profession, or sweats, though the closest we’ll come to athletics is chasing down our kid’s bus in the morning.

The trick to doing something for yourself without cutting into your crazy-nuts routine revolving around others is to strategically hit those areas that draw attention and can add to a general impression of shabbiness if neglected. Using just a few fool-proof products and focusing on a few key areas, we develop routines that allow for five minutes tops in front of a mirror. (Or maybe not tops. This time limit can be altered to three minutes or 10, depending on our needs and wants). These hot spots are Hair, Eyes, lips, hands, and Fatigues.

Of course there are many other items we may use that I encourage you to look at and play with. Beginning with foundation and adding blush is good for most women, though you may have such dewy-perfect skin you don’t need it. I’m just hitting the hot ones here.

There you are sweet sisters! May you feel sparkly, not gray, and decked in your finest fatigues!
