I feel like a different person when I have on an outfit where I feel frumpy and fat, as opposed to something I like and I feel flatters me. That affects every part of me - my attitude, my responses to people, my confidence, even my creativity. So is it worth putting just a bit of thought into what I purchase and wear? Ummmm.... YES! Life is too short to walk around feeling bad. Now, don't take this to the extreme and spend all your time pinning fashion, shopping for fashion, and choosing your fashion for the day. You've defeated the purpose of making fashion work for you and you are now a boring slave to it. Live your life. But live it fashionably.
Now I'll stop preaching so you can get out and live your life (looking stylish, of course)...
