Discouraged because I couldn't afford my taste (for things that cost more than the trade-in value of my car), I gave up and became a lazy dresser; a closet frump; a lost sole (sp). I convinced myself that comfort and thrift were more important than style.

Through twitter I found a community that I wanted to be a part of. But where do I fit? Do other women want to feel pretty in spite of being visually imperfect or over 30?

I want to be one of the cool fashion kids -- the ones who felt good because they looked good.

If we express
who we are through what we wear, doesn't everyone have a unique style?

Designers don't create fashions for red-headed, freckle-faced women-girls who are as tall as runway models' legs are long.

I'll use the web, magazines, fashion blogs, and clothing shops to develop my own casual, fun, slightly edgy, quirky, natural style while staying within a reasonable budget. The results are posted here. I'm now accountable
