Get Cute for YOU!

I’m sure every woman (or at least every woman who watches Oprah) has had what she called an “a-ha” moment while watching the Oprah show. You know what I’m talking about, those moments when Oprah or one of her guests says something you just gasp at and think, “A-HA!”
Watching last week’s makeover show (a week or so late), Oprah said something that gave me such an “a-ha” I had to pause the DVR. Talking about women wearing sweats, etc. in public and not taking care of their looks, it’s easy to say you don’t care about what other people think. It’s easy for them to say it’s simpler for them to dress the way they do, easier, and they don’t give a damn what they’re wearing. But then Oprah said this, “Get cute for YOU!”
Think about that. “Get cute for you.” How many of us dress for others? We dress to impress men, other women, our bosses, our friends. And isn’t it a hassel sometimes? Yes! But what if we change our mindset? What if we dress to impress – ourselves? What if we dress “cute” because we want to feel good.
Don’t you feel better when you look fabulous? Not fabulous for your man or fabulous for your boss. But fabulous where you look in the mirror and say, “damn I look good.” Don’t you feel better? I do.
So there’s a new era for me – if it doesn’t make me feel fabulous, I’m not going to wear it. Because I deserve to be cute…for me!
