Fashion Friday: Just Do It - Always

Indulge me; I'm going to carry the fitness theme into this week's Fashion Friday because I have a few thought's to add to my previous post.

justdoit

The outfit here, which would be fine either at the gym or at your house, is really not nearly as important as the idea. These are just basic activewear pieces; yoga pants, biker shorts, sports bra top, zip up hoodie, and athletic shoes. If you're me the only two items to be picky about are the sports bra top and the footwear. Most of you will have no trouble (and some of you no need) finding a well-fitting sports bra. I have yet to find one, and it's not from lack of trying, so I just wear a regular bra and tee. Your athletic shoes should be where you spend your cash. Make sure they fit well and are geared towards the activities for which you are wearing them.

The exercise equipment pictured aren't just props. I use all of these at some point during the week in my workouts. Instead of a bicycle I use a stationary peddler but the workout is comparable. The point I want to make, especially to those of you with physical limitations, is you have to tailor the concept of exercise to your own abilities. Only you know the difference between possibilities and excuses.

Do it today, then do it tomorrow, then the next day. After a month you'll be able to see yourself always doing some form of physical activity.

Spashionistas Wanted

The outfits that I put together for Fashion Friday are based on my BODS profile. Sure, some of the items I use are beyond my price range but I’m certain I can find reasonable equivalents within my budget. I would love the opportunity to put some together for you for the next installment of Fashion Friday. If you’re interested email me with your BODS profile and we’ll make it happen!

I Got Presents!

I just thought I'd take a moment to share with you the lovely gifts I received for the holidays.

My wonderful friend Lani conspired with Matthew Perry Bretherick and got me this lovely pewter clutch with skulls detail from Shi. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

My brother-in-law supplied the lovely purple paisley silk scarf. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

Mr Spashionista did a great job picking wonderful presents for me this year. Here's a stationary exercise peddler I've been wanting (yes, really). Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

I love this purple floral cover for my Note tablet. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

He really outdid himself in the jewelry department. The bracelet features some of Alphonse Mucha's pieces depicted in charms. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

If the necklace looks familiar it's because I already own a companion piece in amethyst. Like it's mate, the amber necklace is from 1902 and was made in Prague from Sworovski crystals. Uploaded from the Photobucket Android App

Later today we'll treat ourselves to a home-cooked steak dinner.It's supposed to snow tomorrow but we're already planning our after-Christmas shopping strategy.

How about you? Did you get what you wanted for the holidays?
