THE SHOW MUST GO ON…

Hey there! It’s been forever and for that I do apologize.

The devil (better known as the x-hole) has been busy trying to complicate my stylish exit!  I have been busy dodging the monkey wrenches that keep coming my way – – but we know all to well, one monkey don’t stop the show!

As word is getting out about my impending divorce, and after I get the requisite  “I am so sorry, (cue head tilt)  blah blah…”  I get the “but you look so good!”  I appreciate a compliment and accept them humbly, but damn. How am I supposed to look??  What were you expecting?

I follow Coco Chanel’s advice, If you are sad, add more lipstick and ATTACK!” I may feel like my world is crumbling but you’ll never catch me out in the streets looking anything less than pulled together. And in fact, the better I look, the worse I am may feel.

I keep Madame Chanel’s advice top of mind, as well as my days in the fashion industry. I love fashion and am a self-confessed shoe addict! I’d rather be overdressed than underdressed any day. I figure at some point my inner self will match my outer self.

I am not saying that I don’t have my days when I go sans makeup and live in my yoga pants. Who doesn’t? We need those days. It just on those days I stay in the house. I do not take that show on the road!  Pity parties (guest list, one) are ok and are bound to happen during a divorce, but try to keep them to a minimum. Comfort is great. Poor style, not so much.

However, the real reason the show must go in is this: my two little ones are  watching and they notice everything! They won’t see me depleted or deflated  or defeated! So if that means when, I feel like crap and want to hide under the covers, I will do the exact opposite; put on my fiercest heels, those jeans that fit just right, grab my favorite handbag and step out of the door and conquer the day.

ps: don’t forget the lipstick loves…

  1. So very true. If you don’t feel pretty on the outside it impacts your feelings inside. Keep the good feelings flowing because this too wiil end.
