Dear Diary

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today’s weekly newsletter discusses the topic of new beginnings. You can sign up for my newsletter here and get the link to all of my past newsletter private videos.

Well ladies, I have some disappointing news. I heard back from the producers, and unfortunately none of the networks decided to pick up my show. So for now there will be no television show for this glamorous housewife. I am equal parts sad and relieved. Sad because it would have been so exciting to have my own tv show where I could really teach women the lost art of being a homemaker on a large scale. Relieved because of how scary it would have been to be so open and public!

The producer said the networks aren’t looking for this type of show right now, but you never know when they will change their minds. Hollywood is a very fickle place and if nostalgia suddenly becomes in, or if being a homemaker becomes the new hot thing, then maybe I will have another shot. For now I will keep doing what I am doing on the blog and YouTube. As a matter of fact, I am currently working on an online workshop to teach women how to rework their wardrobes into something that they absolutely love! As I get closer to launching it I will give out more details. Thank you dolls so much for all of your support!

3 Reasons To Tailor Your Clothing

trashy diva cherry dress 4.1

If you have been reading my blog for a while you will know that Trashy Diva is one of my favorite designers when it comes to clothing. I find their classic cuts to be both timeless and flattering, the two main things I am looking for when buying clothing. I also find their fabric selection to be excellent; the patterns are tasteful, the drape is body conscious but not too clingy, and the quality is equal to or better than anything I would purchase from a boutique.

Most of the time their size 8 fits me well enough that I don’t have to do any alterations, but this time I felt the shoulders needed to be taken in (something I almost always have to do with my dresses and tops) and I thought the hem was  bit longer than I would have liked. So I took it to my tailor to have it fixed.

If you don’t have a tailor then let me give three reasons why you should be getting your clothing fitted to you.

  1. Tailoring is an excellent way to hide body imperfections. I read somewhere that the reason Joan Crawford wore such large shoulder pads was to give her athletic body more shape. With a little nip and tuck by your tailor you can look as if you had a nip and tuck by a doctor without the expense and recovery!
  2. Clothing that has been tailored fits you perfectly. I know that sounds like a no-brainer, but I swear not enough women seem to understand this. I know it is expensive to have a dress you just paid good money for to then be sewn to fit you when the clothing should fit you correctly in the first place. But with so many body types it just isn’t possible that everything you try on will fit you precisely. You know why stars look so much better in their clothing than you do? It is because everything they wear is tailored to their bodies!
  3. Which brings me to my last reason for tailoring. When you get something tailored and it hides your imperfections, accentuates your best assets, and makes you feel beautiful, that garment will last much longer than if you never took it in to be fitted properly. In the long term you will save money because you aren’t buying hundreds of dresses because you can’t find one that fits you just right.

See the difference?

The hem no longer hits me at an awkward place. It now dangles just below my knee which is my favorite place for a hem to end. I think it shows off my gams without being too cheeky.

The excess fabric has been taken out of the shoulders which gives my bust line a better shape. It makes me feel sexy, not saggy and dowdy.

The bill for the tailor was $45 dollars. Yes, I accept that is quite a bit of money to spend, but I also know that now this is my new favorite dress. I can wear it to the grocery store or out to dinner and I will feel so glamorous in it because it fits me perfectly.

If you are having a difficult time finding clothing that fits you correctly, maybe it is time to get a tailor who will fix your garments and give you a wardrobe that you love!

7 Must Have Items To Keep In Your Car

car1

I have been on a decluttering and organizing kick lately and I thought it was about time I worked on getting my car up to snuff. I got the kids to clean out all of their old toys, dirty napkins, half eaten food, stained socks, and goodness knows what else, and got my car professionally cleaned. Now I feel like I have a brand new shiny car! I drive a minivan and I love every minute of it; ain’t no shame in my game.

Even though there is currently no junk in my trunk, I still needed to keep a few things in my car. I decided to share with you my seven essential items that I keep in my glove compartment. These are things I have in case of an emergency, or because I use it all the time, like the Puffs SoftPack tissue. I thought video would be the best way to present it, so without further ado, here are my 7 must have items for your car:
