Look! It’s Baby(doll) New Year!

This happens to me right before every significant and fun event, I get upset.  And it’s because I go shopping online and in stores tirelessly searching for a dress in my head that doesn’t exist. I envision exactly what I want from head to toe for the event and become let down when it doesn’t appear in front of me.  But that’s the problem! What I see myself wearing is created from my imagination and doesn’t exist.  And time after time I settle for a dress that’s beautiful and great but not perfect and what I pictured.  So with 2015 rolling in quickly I decided to start one of my New Year’s resolutions early.  And that resolution is:

Instead of settling for what is available, move on to what you know you deserve and create your own path

Now although this resolution seem a little too deep for just a dress, it still applies.  So, instead of being disappointed and hopeless to bring in the new year, I decided to revive my hope, use my fashion designing skills (who knew right?) and skip shopping all together.  Well not exactly, I had to buy the fabric, but besides that, created my own path for the PERFECT NYE dress.


Soooooo……..following the popular Winter Trends from last post……
