I came across some wooden bird houses at the dollar store a few weeks ago and decided I wanted to turn them into something cute for my upcoming nuptials. They were only $3 each and I had a good idea of what I wanted to create. After about 2 hours of on-and-off work over the course of a week, I am quite happy with the finished product!
I was raised to be practical with all my choices, and clothing is no exception. Sometimes I envy the appearance of others and how well the image that they have created for themselves is portrayed because of their sense of style. However, the label ‘fashionable’ in not only left to interpretation, but can also be accompanied by grueling pain or discomfort, and irrational decisions. We all accept some kind of fashion standards to fit in with societal expectations, but I try to remind myself that I don’t need to be ‘trendy’ to be comfortable with myself and that my goal shouldn’t be to win the approval of others based on my fashion sense. There’s more that defines me than just the clothes on my back.
