Yes...I'm still wearing clothes

I know I haven't posted a Fashion Un-Able here in awhile, but I have been feeling sort of uninspired in my wardrobe lately. Or rather, my outfit choices have been okay, I just want to share them in a less "look at me and what I'm wearing on a daily basis" shallow kind of way!

So here are some of my thoughts on life as you check out my January Fashion!

 It was cold out this month. But there were some nice days as well. It made me thankful for cute boots and new tights. Want to know the best way to find a sharp fingernail? C'mon ladies, you know the answer...put on a pair of nylons!

I've been thinking a lot lately about being "useful". Or rather, doing things that are useful or helpful to others. Things that make sense, and that help you contribute to things.

I was feeling very useless last week. Like, I had nothing to offer to anyone. Like nothing I did mattered, or made a difference.

And just when I was at my lowest of lows, S* at the dentist's asked me if everything comes easily to me. What!?!?!

She was referring, of course, to how easily I seem to fit in the office. How everything she sees me do seems to come so easily to me.

I absolutely couldn't believe what I was hearing. And I respect this woman enough to give her an honest answer, as best as I could articulate. Which was actually completely frightening, and difficult!

 I told her that something I find very difficult is meeting new people, making friends, talking with people. All that jazz.

She was surprised. She told me exactly that. I told her that in my experience people who meet me for the first time see me as something of a snob.

I'm not sure if that's the right word.

People find me quiet, standoffish, moody, weird, bitchy, angry, cynical and sarcastic (both very true) at first glance. I am not good with new people.

Maybe that's the understatement of the year.

Of the decade...

I hope that my friends can see me in a different way. I hope that once I get my bearings and once I get comfortable, I become less of all those things, and more like myself.

How stupid is it that this simple task is so impossible for me...?

There aren't many things I would change about myself, but this is definitely at the top of my list.

And I don't have many friends. Which means there aren't loads of people in my corner, rooting for me and sticking up for me.

For those of you who know you do this for me, I appreciate more than you could ever know. More than I could ever express in words or in actions.

S* has been very busy at work lately. Overwhelmed really. She told me how much she appreciated my help, and how she just wouldn't be able to get it all done without me.

That was the sunshine to my day.
Clothes may not make a person who they are, but they reflect out to the world, who they want to be and how they see themselves.

I try so hard every day, to make sure I choose things to wear that show off who I truly am.

Mostly cause I have such a crap time showing people the truth in any other way.

And that's what Fashion Un-Able is all about...this week at least!

Hope I didn't scare any of you off...

  1. S* is right Miss Lisa! You are a very capable amazing talented woman! You are always inspiring me to push past my comfort levels and become more acquainted with the real me! You are an exceptional soul. A soul that gives to the world. I am so very lucky to have such a friend.
