By now we’re all face deep into the September issues of our beloved fashion magazines, perusing through pages of editorials. What went down the runways during last fashion week is now coming to life—to a store, and hopefully a closet near you. It’s the single most important representation letting us know that fall is indeed very near.
Marie Claire's editor-in-chief, Joanna Cole, put it best: the excitement of a new season is "a crisp promise of new beginnings." To that end, if you're anything like me, you've already started to make your “back-to-school”, or, in some cases, “back-to-fashion” wish lists, making sure every covetable item you come across has been tagged, or circled (I like to use those colorful Post-it pop up sticky thingies).
Bring it on fall, I'm ready for you--sorta!
So in the spirit of the approaching fall season, I will be sharing with you three of my favorites moments (fashion or not) from the pages of a few September issues. First up, Marie Claire.
I love the shape and fullness of my eyes and lips, both of which I’ve inherited from my mom—which I had to learn to accept. Now that I have fully accepted and love them both, I celebrate and decorated them in color any chance I get!
Try it. What is it that you love about yourself?
“A nagging suspicion, fueled by the forensic details of other people’s lives we are privy to on social media, that our own existences are somehow lacking. If we’d made the right decisions, we berate ourselves, we’d have the fascinating careers/relationships/opinions/offspring/social lives that we perceive others all around us to have.”How many of you have a few of these symptoms, even in the slightest bit? (Hangs head, and raises hand) Well I encourage you to check out Marie Claire’s September issue to find out how to let go of FOMO, I plan to start my recovery now. I’d also love to hear your thoughts. Tweet me @TheFabChick and let’s discuss.
Until the next September Issues…
