Be­ing happy in your own skin

Style and fash­ion is con­stantly chang­ing.

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

What was fash­ion­able last week may not be this week but it’s how you feel about your­self that mat­ters. Turn­ing 50 is a huge mile­stone and one that should not be treated as any other day. In­vig­o­rate your­self, give your­self a new look and you will feel bet­ter for it. Do you ever look through old pho­tos and think “I can’t be­lieve I ever dressed like that!” or “I can’t be­lieve how my hair looked!” Look at your­self in the mir­ror, what do you see? Are you happy with how you look? Feel­ing com­fort­able and feel­ing beau­ti­ful in your own skin is para­mount. It doesn’t mat­ter how you look to oth­ers, it’s all about you. It’s time to give your­self the ul­ti­mate spruce up, if you’re not happy with your clothes, your makeup or your over­all style and ap­pear­ance then get started on fix­ing those things. But al­ways keep in the back of your mind that this is for you, not any­one else. If you’re happy with how you dress then why change to suit the cur­rent trend? The first step is to go through your wardrobe and pull out ev­ery­thing you haven’t worn in over 12 months. If you haven’t worn it then the chance of you wear­ing it again is very slim. Through this process you may even dis­cover some hid­den cloth­ing trea­sures that were lost at the back of the cup­board. If you have kept cloth­ing you wore over 20 years ago then there’s a good pos­si­bil­ity you

would fit right in wear­ing it to­day. The pos­i­tives of fash­ion to­day are that the decades are con­stantly re­volv­ing. Leather jack­ets, tights, boots, flo­ral dresses and straw brim hats – ev­ery­thing is look­ing hot this year so make your­self beau­ti­ful. With the clothes you elim­i­nated from your ex­trav­a­gant col­lec­tion, take a trip to the Sal­va­tion Army or any cloth­ing bin and give them to some­one in need. You may not wear it or like it but it might be ex­actly what some­one else is
