A bit of randomness, true to my Type 1. Yesterday I was suddenly over the brights. Dumped all my blacks, greys, and nothings and have filled my closet with brights. Tired of them all ready. I actually walked by my pile of death (otherwise known as two overflowing laundry baskets of solid black clothing I'm donating) and actually missed the quietness of them. Must be my Type 4.
Anyone else do this? I went thru some online catalogues this morning searching for style and colors that I liked, but I didn't see much. I kinda see myself defaulting to denim, white and deep brown. I'm having a hard time deciphering between the Type 2 denim and Type 1 denim, though. I need some softer pastels maybe, and some plain-ish gold jewelry for day to day.
So those are thoughts I'm having. I've actually been in a sorta funk since getting back from shopping yesterday. I found a beautiful 24carat gold over sterling necklace on 75% off at Kohl's, but other than that, I kept fighting depression over my weight issues. I can't just go into any old mall store and buy cute Type 1 clothes....and the Type 1 clothes in the plus shops look um, well, not like something I want to put on my body. It's hard to feel 'cute' when you're overweight at the mall.
I'm also struggling a bit with my hair. The highlights have left it really dry and course, and there's too much weight around my face. The curl left at the bottom makes the top look droopy, and there's only so much product I can put in there! I think I need more layers or something, but I don't want to go shorter. Maybe some bangs? I was a pretty au natural kinda girl, so all this makeup and layers and jewelry is beginning to feel like a bit of a drag. Again, looking for some balance and prolly just need to give myself some time. My Type 4 wants it perfect NOW. Phooey.
Here's some funnish bits of video I shot of my daughter and I on our shopping excursion yesterday. I was mostly focused on helping my her as she is deciding between a 2 and 4 (Sarah Tuttle said she saw mostly 2 in her features, but we thought she was a 4...which didn't excite her much, so we're going with the 2 for now). Anyway, we shopped for two stuff, and she found some great deals and beautiful, drapey muted pieces. You should see her closet...it is evenly divided between all black for work, and all greys and muted purples for home. :)
Here's Maddie, telling me in detail (snicker) why these eye brushes rock:
Looking at hair crap, trying to tell the difference between a Type 3 gold and Type 1 gold...I think I said I'm 'sposed to wear the "brassy gold", but I meant the bright shiney gold.
Looks like the Children's Place is carrying all Type 1 clothes for kids this season. Too bad they don't have a store for adult Type 1s like this!
Heading in to Kohl's.....
Maddie finally found a purse at Gordmans....
