The Holiday Outfit Hangover

Oh Tis The Season for The Holiday Outfit!  The brand new outfit that we have been buying yearly, since we were children.  It’s tradition, it’s fun, it’s just what you were raisholiday-outfited to do! You plan your shopping trip.  You race around 20 stores till you find the right outfit.  The
holiday party arrives and you carefully cut off the new tags. The end result is you look good, you feel good and off you go to your holiday party.

NEW OUTFIT HANGOVER

The day after your holiday party arrives you most likely will suffer from a new outfit hangover.  That new outfit is not so new anymore.  Worst of all, lurking in the back of your mind is that credit card balance.  A credit card balance with all your holiday gifts and that new outfit!  At this point and time all you can hope for was a good photo of you in that pricey outfit!

Fitness & Fashion Beauty Secret for all sizes

Regardless of your size and shape, if you are fit you will feel as beautiful as the clothing you purchase.  That’s the simple secret!  Once a hater of fitness, I now am a believer in fitness.  Why a fitness hater? TIME!!!!!!  THERE ARE JUST NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY!  I work my eBay fashion business full time plus I sell grave markers part time!  Crazy combo but two fields I am very passionate about!  You would think working in the death care industry would motivate but……I could come up with every excuse in the world not to work out. Then something happened.  Read more to find out!

FORCED ONTO A TREADMILL treadmill

I was introduced to a treadmill!  More like I was dragged into the gym and pushed onto a treadmill.  So with my bad attitude, smart phone and ear buds in hand, I started walking.  I dialed into a downloaded book and was instantly hooked!  While I listened to my book I noticed the heart rate and miles.  Wow!  After 20 minuets my workout was over and I was already planning when I should come back!  The best part was I FELT GREAT!  This feeling lasted all day and all night.  The next morning was even better.  I put on my outfit for the day and I felt as beautiful as the clothing I was wearing!  That’s when I realized that fashion and fitness should go hand in hand!

Now please know that I am a true believer that we are all made to be our own shape and size.  Some are meant to be thin and others are meant to be curvy.   Both shapes are BEAUTIFUL.  Regardless of your shape you need fitness in your life. Fitness shapes our mind, our soul and simply can make you feel beautiful!  I have never been one to feel beautiful.  But I have to say now that I have been at this treadmill I feel beautiful inside and out. Sounds silly I know, but true.  I am now committed to scheduling 45 min, 5 days a week into my day to make a trip to the gym and find that glorious treadmill.

FITNESS GOAL

Fashion and fitness

My goal is not to shed pounds but to tone and gain endurance.  I am what they call “skinny fat”.  My goal is not to huff and puff going up and down steps.  My goal is to tone up some of those areas that have seemed to “go south”.

Your goal may be different.  If you are trying to loose weight I recommend seeing a doctor first and getting the green light to start your fitness program.  Remember, I also work in the death care industry so it’s better to be safe than sorry!

If you are going to see a doctor DO NOT PUT IT OFF!  If you have read this article and think “yes I am going to feel as beautiful as the clothing I wear” then make an appointment TODAY to see your doctor.  DO NOT PUT THIS OFF!  The saddest monuments I design are for  those who never got a chance to live a full life.

A TREADMILL MAY NOT BE YOUR THING

If a treadmill is not your thing pick another type of work out.  There are so many forms of exercise out there just pick one!  Google working out to get more ideas.

  • Yoga
  • Jumping Rope
  • Walking
  • Running
  • Swimming
  • Hiking
  • Biking

EAT WELL

Now that I am getting fit I am making better choices as to what I eat.  I still eat anything I want but in moderation.  I am a big believer in not depriving yourself.  But I also believe in selecting a variety foods and not over doing any one kind of food.

DID YOU MEET YOUR GOAL …. IF YES TREAT YOURSELF TO A NEW OUTFIT

Remember how I said that fitness can make you feel as beautiful as the clothing you wear? Once you start meeting your fitness goals treat yourself to a new outfit each week.  If you don’t meet your goal then NO outfit.  You may think that can get pricey but it’s really not! Get on eBay or go to your local consignment store and find some high end brands at low end prices!  For example, I sell many tops in my eBay store for $4-$15 on average.  I think a name brand shirt and pants for a total of $8 – $20 a week would be a great instinctive to get in shape!

I hope that I have encouraged you that regardless of your size and shape, if you are fit you will feel as beautiful as the clothing you purchase.  So get committed today and feel fit and beautiful!

 

Second Hand Fashion

Yes it is true, I am passionate about second hand fashion.  I wear it, I love it and I have built my business around second hand fashion.  This fashion is unique, affordable and kind to the environment.

No More COOKIE Cutter FASHION

Second hand fashion can set you apart from the cookie cutter apparel world.  The world in which everyone strives to be the same.  The world where “I want one just like that“.  The world where your identity is based on what everyone else is wearing.  Second hand, pre-owned fashion can be current fashion, last years fashion or even vintage fashion.  Most important, fashion purchased on your terms.  When you purchase second hand fashion your objective is finding that unique style that looks great on you!  The stress of trying to fit into the cookie cutter fashion world is no longer an issue.

Financial Happiness

 

Financially, second hand clothing makes sense.  Clothing is so expensive these days.  Food and home expenses have skyrocketed.  Combine all those costs with raising children and expenses keep piling up.  The cold hard truth is life is expensive but we still need to look good!  Remember the saying, “if you look good you feel good!”  With this in mind second hand fashion comes to the rescue.  Not only can you find name brands at 80% of the retail cost but you can now afford to buy higher end clothing!  Higher end clothing is durable and can be an investment for your wardrobe.  To top it off, ALL of the second hand clothing I purchase is LIKE NEW condition!  Second hand does not mean you have to settle.  I guarantee you, like new can be found!

Try On GREEN

If you are still not convinced to purchase fashion second hand then let’s think green.  Every fashion purchase you make keeps our world a little cleaner.  There is so much waste, so much that goes unwanted, so much discarded in exchange for new.

I Love It & I Wear It

Now as mentioned, I not only have built my business around second hand fashion but I also love it and wear it.  My business is centered on sourcing out great locations or consignees who have great pre-owned, like new second hand clothing.  My eBay feedback in my eBay store, Designer Name Brand Goods and More, supports our dedication to offering great clothing!

I have to mention that in the past 3 years I have not purchased one new clothing item for myself.  An exception to this rule is I purchase my unmentionables brand new. Otherwise, all clothing, shoes, purses, accessories are all purchased for myself, second hand, for the very reasons I mentioned above.

I encourage you to give second hand a try.  Most likely once you try it you will never go back!  You just may find yourself saying “I am passionate about second hand fashion!”
