Today I participated in the Fashion Bug Fashion Show for the second time. It was a wonderful and fun time. It is great being around so many women who feel confident about themselves in beautiful new clothing. I sported a peach top and khakis, and I received many compliments from both people in the show and others who had watched the show. Fashion Bug also offered hair stylists and makeup artists for some of the models, and I got a free makeover. I rarely wear makeup, and it was nice to get some pointers for when I do wear it. I felt incredibly beautiful, and it was an amazing boost to my self-confidence. I recommend it to anyone brave enough to participate in this event.
One of the other perks of this event, other than the boost in self-confidence and the pleasure of being around other women who just want to have fun and feel good about themselves, is that we got 40% off of our purchases after the show. I got some beautiful clothing, and I bought some jewelry for a wedding that I'm going to this summer. I bought the shirt I modeled in the show, and I got this amazing 70's-style dress that I might wear to work this week. So not only did I get to feel beautiful for a day, I'll get to feel beautiful for a long time to come :)
