I am new to blogging, but I am not new to feeling my best when I’m looking my best. Why do I feel my best, because I have no stress related to the age-old struggle of “What should I wear?”, “I have nothing to wear,” “This is too tight,” “What goes with this?”….instead, my family and my career can be my focus. My time is not spent on mom getting ready to look great. My daughter (and son) get to have a mom who puts much focus on what really matters and very little time on the ‘getting dressed war’ that we so easily enter into to on the daily. Stop losing the battle and start winning! So how is this so easy for me, especially with my weight changing in between and after two babies and my wardrobe needs being so demanding (i.e., career wear, PTO meeting mom, workout wear, and those dreaded grocery runs)?
The secret is in WHAT is in my closet & HOW I get it there! So….here’s how it goes…the WHAT is what looks good on you, what is high quality, what is modest (except for maybe that sexy date night top or dress), what is classic. So HOW does it become a part of my personal collection? (Oh, you didn’t know you have a personal collection? Wait, you thought you just have clothes? Oh no, honey! Every piece should be evaluated to determine whether it makes the cut to be in your personal collection, a collection of carefully selected pieces that emphasize your style, your personality, your lifestyle, that enhance your natural beauty, that say “yes, what I’m wearing is fabulous” but “who I am is really what matters.” The suspense is killing you, I know, so let’s get back to HOW you build your personal collection? You thrift for it. Nothing was built in a day, but all things are made new. Here at Abelle…Made New, I want to help you look your best to feel your best to be your best! The ups and downs of life will roll and your wardrobe can be the least of your worries even on the worst day – whether it’s baby spit up, worry and doubt, losing a job, losing that 10 lbs. that’s closer than a sister, hating a job, hating the dinner grind, and on and on.
So, who’s in? Used clothes….from where…..? Let Abelle…Made New do the dirty work for you! Well, the hunt is actually the super intriguing part but until you are ready to venture out to some of the best second-hand stores, let me help you and your closet become new, with some not exactly new pieces that you’ll not only love, but they will love you back too!
Can I get an amen? …from the momma just getting by on one income or who has a beautiful heap of babies or who is paycheck to paycheck with no dinero for her own fashion or who has a fat monthly daycare bill or who has student loan debt or credit card debt or all those other debts that are out there? You’ll love my richly discounted, glam finds. Now, what about the momma who doesn’t need to thrift, well at least for this season of her life? You have the money to shop at Nordstrom for all things gorgeous? I call that “I can, but why?” Finding the latest and greatest at a fraction of the cost allows those without debt (not I said the fly) to buy that gotta-have Louis or Tiffany or book a last-minute trip to South Beach or the mountains. With that being said, I should now have the full attention of all of you ladies….whether or not you NEED to thrift…do it because you can…because you are WISE.
More to come from Abelle…Made New. Who’s with me?
