I promised myself a while ago that I shall act and dress more feminine, that I will take better care of myself. Believe it or not, that is really hard, especially when time is not your friend.
Dressing like a young respectable woman, making sure your skin is soft and nice, applying make up, taking care of yourself in general takes a lot of time. That an the fact that in Romania good quality clothes & make up are very expensive makes it even harder.
Lately, all the make-up I bought was from online stores. Its much cheaper and this way you can take your time and pick whatever you want, without having to worry about the store clerk giving you weird looks. I know, I’m weird myself but I am one of those people that hates going to the mall. I hate it because it looks like a fashion show. I’m not saying that people should dress like they are going to Walmart but even so, its intimidating to see the effort some people put into their appearance just to eat at McDonald’s.
With clothes its a bit more tricky.
You see, you need to know your body when you buy clothes without trying them on. You need to know your measurements, what style flatters you and you need a little bit of luck.
On that note, I can honestly say I really got lucky this year when I ordered from YesStyle. I managed to catch the sale period and I even got free shipping. It was one of the best buys I made in the last few years. It took me two weeks to decide on what to buy and another moth for the order to be shipped to me, but I bought Autumn clothes when people were making plans for their summer vacation so the shipping time didn’t affect me in any way.
I bought 5 things:
1. Drop-Shoulder Knit Top, this is a quirky piece of clothing and its exactly as on the website.
2. Set: Belted Cardigan + Camisole. I actually ordered the biggest size on this item. I was afraid that the sizes wouldn’t match, and heck Asians are very slim, I;m not. So, Its a bit large one me, but still nice.
3. Geometric Print Sweater. This piece will determine me to keep my belly flat.
4. Keyhole-Back Knit Sweater, my favorite of them all.
I’m really happy with the quality of the clothes and I actually can’t wait to wear them. Next step, purchasing shoes and then I shall never have to go shopping again. My little PC will do everything for me. I can dream right?!?
