I work from home and, quite a bit of the time, it’s really quiet here and I’m doing “paperwork” type stuff like planning lessons, grading, etc. So I watch TV. It keeps me company and…I love it. I’ve always liked “What Not to Wear” (WNTW) but have just recently started watching it every day. I’m declaring today that every woman should watch that show. Every. Woman.
I say that not because most people dress badly. (Although I do think some people could do with some advice from Stacey and Clinton. I mean “PINK” should never be on your ass unless your 16. Ahem.) I say you should watch it because they find the best parts of every woman’s figure, dress their body to emphasize that best part, and make the woman feel like a million bucks. Shouldn’t we all do that? Instead of focusing on what’s wrong with our figures, focus on what’s right and show it off!!!
Very few women on the show have “perfect” figures. They’re not supermodel freaks or anything like that. They’re just normal people. And they all look like a gorgeous when they’re done. Most of the women have completely stopped putting themselves on the map. That’s my other favorite part of the show. These women have totally stopped caring about themselves. Whether you like to believe it or not, the way you look says a lot about you. If you’re wearing huge sweatpants and a hole-filled sweatshirt with your dirty hair under a baseball cap and no make-up, you’re saying something. Whether you mean to or not. I’m not saying there’s not the occasional time and place for that attire…but every day? You deserve better than that. And that is exactly why we should all watch this show.
After the women get their clothes made over, they get a new haircut and a make-up lesson. Have you ever realized what a good haircut and a little mascara can do for a person? A ton! I just love watching these women realize that they are beautiful and they deserve the time to make themselves look good, and more importantly, feel good.
It’s helped me too. I’ve been trying to be nicer to myself. Watching this show helps me realize that you don’t have to have a perfect figure in order to look…great! I always feel good after watching this show. I have even considered dressing frumpy for a while so someone would nominate me so I could get to meet Stacey and Clinton and win a free wardrobe! 😉
