What is flirty?
Tuesday, October 26, 2010
What is flirty? What do you think of when you hear the word? When we say, “Find your inner flirt”, we don’t mean go out and throw yourself at the mailman, or wear leopard pumps to the playground. Your inner flirt is the you that feels confident and content; the you that feels like a million bucks. You’re comfortable, you’re polished, and best of all, you’re happy. You’re flirty!
The simple fact is that most women staying at home, either with kids or with a computer, often don’t feel very flirty. We’re busy doing everything for everyone else and we dedicate very little time to ourselves. When we do, we feel guilty, but that’s a whole different website.
Believe it or not, Jamie and I used to spend a lot of time looking at fashion, reading about fashion, talking about fashion…heck, we lived fashion. Then one day we had children and it all kind of went out the window. For a while we lived in sweats and in a way, it was a relief after years in the corporate world. However, it’s a fine line between being comfortable and cozy and feeling demoralized and frumpy. Just because I no longer had time to stand in front of my closet and try to figure out what to wear, did not mean I had to wear my husband’s Fairfield sweatshirt for the third day in a row.
I don’t know who said, “When you look good, you feel good”, but truer words were never spoken. We’ve all had the feeling of an outfit that looks great on us. It just works, and when it does, you feel like you can take on the world. The thing is, it’s really not all that hard to achieve and it certainly doesn’t have to make you slash your Starbucks budget or forgo college for the kids to get there.
Jamie and I have different styles but when we sat down to figure out what FlirtyFinds would be, one thing became apparent. No matter what your style, the idea is the same. You invest in a few wardrobe basics—great fitting jeans, a couple of simple tops, and sweaters in neutral colors. These staples are all interchangeable. Then you create “the look” by adding accessories that pop—a fashion-forward Big Buddha bag, a chic sweater wrap, a cool belt or scarf, a pair of hoop earrings, a chunky necklace or a stack of bracelets. The beautiful thing is that each time you change the accessories, you create a whole new look. It’s really that simple.
FlirtyFinds has received so many emails looking for advice that they've decided to create a blog to help answer the questions of what to wear when…
you’re going for a teacher conference
you’re meeting an old rival
your son’s new doctor is hotter than McDreamy
and on and on…
