Passionate Fashion - Black and Teal

Do you need a reason to dress up? Do you dress for yourself or everyone else? I find that I dress for me because I can't leave the house in something that I don't love. I may want other people to like what I wear but I don't wear something only because someone else might like it.

I am struggling with dressing again. This time it isn't about having to wear suits. My new conundrum is to dress for the weather, look nice for work, dress for the temperature inside (cold), and dress for all possibilities of work. I might end up lugging goods in the warehouse. I might be shooting pictures outside in 0 degree F weather. (Or worse.) I might be sitting at my desk in 50 degree weather. I never know what I am going to be doing.

I want to dress up for work but it doesn't seem right.

My dreams right now? To not have to worry about work, what to wear to work, money, owning two houses.... anyone want to buy a northern getaway? I don't want to worry about the things that I want but can't seem to have. I don't want to think about why I don't seem to ever measure up.

I think I need a tattoo, a hair cut, new color, and a piercing.

Aw! A tattoo, a new haircut, a new color, and a piercing?! Shoot kid, how about starting out with something simple, like a manicure?

No, but really, I have more than 20 tattoos, and I've had my share of unusual piercings, so if you have any questions, I'm a resource.

Also, I think this outfit is slick, but maybe you would like your hair color better if you wore some warm colors near your face. They can really bring color to the cheeks.

Anyways, really, you look slick! You're workin' it!
