Lady Crush: Ginnifer Goodwin

I have been neglecting this blog due to illness/school completely curbstomping me, which is truly awful and I apologize.  I have some things I can't wait to show you, but until I'm feeling a little better...I am providing you with someone I look to for inspiration.

We all have those celebrities that we simply adore.  For me, my main gal is Ginnifer Goodwin.  I think she may be just about the cutest thing on the whole planet.  I so envy her bold style, and how she pulls it off while looking so purely sweet at the same time.

She told Lucky magazine in a 2011 interview, "I'm three different sizes" says Goodwin, gesturing to her tiny waist, narrow shoulders, and what she calls her "womanly" hips.  "I buy things that are big and tailor them down...Things look better when I embrace my body."

I feel as though that is the most empowering part of altering clothing.  You can make adjustments to the clothes to flatter your body rather than blaming your body for the things that are bothering you.  It is truly an amazing feeling to not carry around that weight (bahah, no pun intended).  Looking at clothes and saying "How can I fix this?" is a lot more fun than saying "How can I fix me?"  I truly believe that every body-type has a certain style that let's them flaunt it and feel beautiful.  Also, the Valentino dress she is wearing in the left, probably my favorite thing I've ever seen.  Too bad I'll never afford it.

Song I can't stop listening to today: Pursuit of Happiness Cover/Lissie (Orig. Kid Cudi)
