Love Love Love

A compliment always, always, ALWAYS makes me feel so good! Seriously... so why not spread the joy? I forget to dole out the compliments... I need to do better.

So, go tell someone something nice today, tonight, tomorrow, this evening, whenever. Let the things you say be encouraging. (I need to take this advice myself.) Sow seeds of love everywhere you go. It make the world prettier because it makes people's hearts prettier. When your heart is prettier, your soul is prettier, and when your soul is prettier, your countenance is prettier...which means YOU LOOK FABULOUS!

p.s. I fully realize this is not 'fashion' related...technically...but technically...that's okay!

I need to branch out...

So...I learned something today. By no means am I an 'expert' on fashion. Here is where taking advice is left up to the listener. Yes...I am sharing what I 'think' I know. Naturally, if someone asks "Where do you shop?" or "Where do you get your cute clothes?" I am going to answer with where I shop. (I'm still getting to the thing I learned...)

I personally shop LOTS of places.
*I do the bulk of my shopping these first four places.
- Consignment stores (Second Chance, Second Time's a Charm, DeJa Vu Designer Consigner, etc.)
- Thrift Stores (Bargain Thrift, Value Thrift, Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc.)
- Garage/Yard Sales
- Forever 21

* I generally feel like I'm getting really fancy if I get something from these places. Ha.
- Target

- Ann Taylor the Loft (sale racks only for me...and this store makes me feel like a 'grown-up')
- Gap (rarely)
- JC Penny's

Okay, so back to my lesson:
Last school year, someone older than me asked those aforementioned questions and I told her where I shop and she went there and tried to do the same thing I do. She was telling me about her adventure today and she said the following:
"When I looked at myself in the mirror I thought 2 things. Well, this makes me look like a sausage and I look like one of those old women you want to grab by the arm and tell her, 'You are NOT a teeny-bopper anymore!'"

Shoot, Jana Faith! *sigh* I know fashion changes according to the age bracket you're in. That's why there are magazine articles about how to 'rock the trends' no matter what age you are. So ladies, I am going to try and branch out and share what I know for various age groups. :o)

Love to all

Fash-on I gotta live!!!

Okay ladies.... I have a tip.

I never seem to have enough undershirts, camisoles, or solid white t's. At Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Gap, a.k.a. "the mall"  you can get cute little shirts for $5 - $10. BUT STOPPPP! That's too much! Someone very thrifty recently let me in on a secret: you can get plain white hemmed undershirts and plain white v-neck and round neck tee-shirts in the mens undergarments section.


I just bought 6 v-neck shirts for $9.50 and 3 'wifebeater' shirts for $7.50. I have come up with all kinds of fun ways to wear these. I highly recommend the purchase. Plus, since they're in the men's section of the store, no worries abouts sizes b/c I know Wal-Mart sells up to a 3X in men's.

Have fun with your new white shirts. Plus, if you're not feelin' the white can dye them any color you choose. :oD

Encouraging you...

Have you ever seen an outfit on someone and thought to yourself, "Man, I wish I could do that..."? Good news, people! You CAN!

I get my fashion inspirations from that exact thing...
I am a people watcher and I'm always eye-balling what people are wearing. I take it in: head to toe, so if you ever see me 'creepin'...I'm just admiring your outfit. :o)

For example, several years ago, at least 5, I saw a girl named Sam who wore a simple solid t-shirt with a scarf tied around her shirt as a shirt. I know, this tip won't work for usually works for the more 'narrow' people out there. (scarf-shirt picture at the end) My point is fashion is all over the place!

It drives me crazy to hear someone say "Oh, I couldn't pull that off". Here's my question to you: Have you tried?!

I encourage you to: Be bold! Be brave! Be courageous! Think outside that blasted box!

Here I go...

With the support of 7 facebook friends...I'm venturing into the world of blogging about fashion. I'm not entirely sure where this will take us but as I was sifting through the racks at one of my favorite consignment stores tonight... I thought those same things to myself I always think:

1. Know your fabrics.
- this means... you can tell by looking at the sleeves whether or not the whole shirt is worth a look. If the sleeves are stupid (i.e. peely, balled up, wrinkly, stained) skip it!

2. Know your colors.
- this means... there are some colors that just are not flattering on people. For example, I can't wear khaki near my face. It washes me out. Also, lots of yellows look stupid on me. If you're not sure whether a color is good on you, bring an honest friend. She might tick you off, but at least she's telling the truth.

3. Flip through quickly.
- this means... flip, flip, flip, flip, SKIM through the clothes for the sake of time.

4. Knowing your size often doesn't do a bit of good. I'm serious, people. I have pants in a variety of sizes and shirts that range from a small to a large, which leads to my next point.

5. Be willing to try everything on and put things back.


6. If you're not in love with it...don't waste the money. Even if it is a "good buy. " If you're not in love with it you won't wear it.

Okay. More to come. Please stay tuned and bear with me.
Love~ Jana Faith
