YTH. ANN: Since I only use makeup like twice a month, is it okay to get rid of makeup carriers instead of continuing to take up space on the table? Or is it a subconscious signal that I’m giving up?
DEAR READERS: Does “far away” mean “neatly stored, clearly labeled, ready to use?” Or “invisible because I’ll never use this again but can’t bear to get away from it?”
My hunch is a combination, and you need to sort the “sometimes” items from the “finish and finish” products. Anything that holds up in the pile “sometimes” is sure to keep it on the counter but not in an open bag.
Prepare the casing with a lid. Hat box, tackle box, some artificial suede items on permission. As long as the lid is closed, ta-da-da, you’re getting the occasional make-up without sitting there torturing you with the visibility. “Finish and finish” make-up is a mess because even if it’s technically usable, you’ve moved on. And it’s not giving up. This is the beginning of a new start.
YTH. ANN: Mullet fuck or something more suitable for my age, which is 68?
DEAR READERS: Current events ask each of us to provide an example of high-road forward thinking. The most selfless and visionary thing you can do for anyone seeking your guidance, which is basically everyone because everyone is looking now and then, is to avoid the idea of ”proper hair” as one of the many trite concepts. which is no longer of any benefit to us. So I’m sorry if it turns out to be unappealing, but for the greater good, the fuck mullet.
YTH. ANN: I am 58 years old and have been working at home for most of the COVID and will be working from home until May. I have a work wardrobe I love, but now only casual wear makes sense, and I always struggle with casual clothes that feel like “me”.
It’s a funny time because I finally feel confident and who I am. What I want others to see is someone who is curious, warm-hearted, and approachable. I didn’t want a “liberal, awakened” vibe, just a “non-political, open vibe to learn about other people and change the way I think and act.”
Unfortunately, I have a face that may scream white heels but I don’t want to be associated with that. I want to make sure that white people who deserve this message and are afraid to approach me or are interested and want to learn as much as I want to learn.
I love an athletic and energetic vibe, but I have a menopausal belly so tight yoga pants without a long sweater are impossible. I like modern Scandinavia. Shoes are also a problem. I prefer thrift stores and natural fibers. I really wanted to change clothes (or make them) but didn’t have the creative spark of figuring out what to do.
Please? Am I the only one who feels this way?
DEAR READERS: Pretty sure most menopausal Minnesotans who wear silver jewelery is with you, and the answer lies in breaking the “modern Scandinavian” into two parts: 1) “modern”, which I recommend leaving because you’re right on the hint at it. how tone-deaf today is; and 2) “Scandinavia”, which provides the elements you’re looking for, if we look back.
The prehistoric Viking woman had a few items you might want to import: leather footwear, which you could interpret as work boots or over-the-ankle house sandals, whatever, make them natural and sturdy as if you might need to. went from spinning wool to toiling across fields in an instant.
Also the dress strap is basically a roomy jumper with pockets. This is your answer to a large sweater – paired with yoga pants, a natural fiber strap dress that says, “I’m energetic and aware of my heritage and probably carry flint, which I’m not afraid to wear.” Also, “don’t hesitate to ask about the thing I’m wearing unless it scares you because you’re afraid of introspection, in which case stay away.”
Bonus points for wooden or bone buttons. Anything you can do to replace the Fair Isle-ish element of your wardrobe with a more understated, crude, and more functional alternative, I’m sure you’ll start to feel more like Ansuz runes (openness, insight, communication, vision) and do not like it much. , well, like a silver cuff bracelet stamped with Ansuz runes.
