It always makes me laugh when I see a magazine that promises to
uncover yet another celebrity's secret to everlasting beauty.
I always think, "What secret?"
Give me 24 million dollars and a team of experts and I bet I'd look stunning all the time, too.
But show me a woman who buys whatever she can afford from her
favorite stores and works them together in interesting and cohesive ways:
then you've got my attention.
They way women put things together is so revealing.
I love how two women can take the same piece and mix it with something else in a way that makes sense for their lifestyle and end up with two distinctive looks.
You never see those women wearing a blazer with three sleeves, or heels so outrageous they can barely stand.
They understand that what works on the mannequin in the store, might possibly look ridiculous on them.
Give me the flawed perfection of the woman next door over the air-brushed celebrity any day,
'cuz more than likely, she's the woman who will touch a life.
Whether she's a piano teacher to your children or the nurse who cares for you in the hospital.
She's real. She's smart. She's you.
