Don’t you just love to attend a great event?!
I must say I am now beginning to appreciate the fun of a nice gathering. Husband, on the other hand, LIVES for a good party. I call him a socialite…yes, a socialite because he loves to mingle and hob knob (minus the little black dress) with whomever is gathering and where ever they are gathering. He wants to see and be seen!
Any wonderful event takes a great amount team work before to make the final production to appear seamless. Throughout my 5 glorious decades, I have planned many a party, gathering, and festivity. Most of time the planning for these events was wonderful. However, there have been a few times when I was secretly devising my route of escape from the mayhem. I have determined- the level of awesomeness during the planning determines the level of awesomeness of the event. During event planning, people of many shades, strengths, and walks of life come together for a common goal…ensuring that all who attend leave saying “Oh my God, that was sooooo much fun!”
I think of fashion as a body party! As I plan my ensembles, I take items of different colors, materials, and textures put them together for one common goal…to create an outfit that says “Oh my goodness, I am so cute!” Fashion is made of individual pieces that alone are cute but when joined with other equally cute pieces…the fashion festival could be off the charts! How many times have you taken things in your closet that seem not to go together, BUT when put together for one common goal (your lavishness) the results are spectacular. Can you see the analogy between wardrobe planning and planning an event, party, or shower?
Think of the planning for your next outfit as if you are planning for a party. Bringing different things together for a common purpose can yield super fun results. AND just like any event planning, if it is not a great success the first time, do not throw in the towel. Just as in life, it takes a while to get used to working with people who do not exactly match; so keep trying! Now, be forewarned! Husband will not be interested in attending your fashionable body party, however; any other event you are having…my socialite will be ready and willing to add to the fun! Please.. do not disturbed by the Crocs on his feet.
