Hi once again everyone. Marlene here on our 2nd week of Passion for Fashion. I hope you all had a fabulous Easter weekend with your Family & Friends. A really funny thing happened to me over the weekend, that I want to share with you: While I was at my good friend, Isabelle’s home, I was telling her about my exciting news–that I was writing a fashion column for the “Seeker”, and that I am going to be the “Seeker Fashion Police” here in Cornwall. I am going to be traveling around town, giving out citations to people guilty of Fashion No-No’s. This turns out to be really good and fun for everyone involved: Whoever receives a citation from me will have a chance to WIN a complete “Make Over”–That is to say, hair, make- up, a mini photo shoot, new clothes, etc.
Isabelle was pleased to hear my wonderful News, but then she looked at me in a funny way and asked, “Shouldn’t you have your top on the other way?” To my surprise, I had it on backwards. Busted! The Fashion Police, herself (Me) was guilty of a slip up. Isabelle asked if she should give me a ticket! We laughed.
So you see everyone, No one is Perfect. Especially me. Some people wear their clothes backwards or have their pants around their knees. But, hey, if that’s how they’re expressing themselves, then that’s fine. I feel if someone takes the time and puts in a little effort in their everyday dressing, then Thumbs Up to them. Kudos!
It is a wonderful way to express oneself and it is very easy to do. You don’t need a lot of money to look and feel good about yourself. That is the main reason why you should take the time to fix or doll yourself up! Even when I am sicker than sick, I still take the time to put on something nice, do my hair, and put on a little make-up. I may not feel so good, but, hey, I look good. And that makes me feel better on the inside. That’s what really matters–because when you feel good on the inside, then you’re definitely looking good on the outside!
So, until next week! Keep smiling and beware the ‘Fashion Police’ will be on duty.
