So when my new box arrived, I felt very guilty about it. But as I surveyed my closet with the dropping temps in mind, I realized I still can't fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes but I don't have much in the way of warm things.

Finally, I tried on the polka-dot pullover sweater. I recently edited my profile to say "yes" to polka-dots because they can be so cute and timeless. I would never pick this sweater for myself, but I am going to give it a shot and I will explain why: I spend about 30 minutes TOPS getting myself ready and mentally, I still picture myself like a college girl who looks "good enough" in whatever she wears. I started to take some photos of this fix without doing my hair or makeup and I was a little taken aback by what I saw: a tired old lady. I don't know when this tired old lady showed up and took the place of the plump glowing pregnant lady that used to be here, but I can guess that she slipped in somewhere in the long string of nights of insomnia, extended work hours of show prep, and mental exercises about life in general with too many plates spinning. I see the old lady show up dressed in gray from head to toe, tired cardigan sweaters, hair unkempt and bags under her eyes. This little sweater sent me to the mirror for the five second pick-me-up of lipstick and a brush of eyeliner and the reminder that nobody else is going to take care of the old lady if I don't.

Since this fix was expensive, I adjusted my fix frequency and am taking a little break to make sure I wear what I have. I'm super torn about it because I really love the things my new stylist is choosing for me and I can't wait to see what else she finds. But Cinderella has to come home from the ball and get to work, so off I go!
