On being 40, a size 14, and….fabulous!

I’m 40. There. I said it.

I’m still processing how I got to be here, 40.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m happy. I’m content…I’ve been there, done that, and am fine where I am.

After years of struggling with weight gain, weight loss (Thank you, thyroid) I have settled into a comfy size either 12 or 14, and honestly, I’m okay with that. I mean, that cheesecake¬† isn’t gonna finish itself now, is it. No.

I work in women’s fashions, specifically fashions for the over 25 set.

A wonderful Canadian company, moderately priced, great quality pieces that mix and match well together.

I love my job.  I get to shop and play with clothing all day. And dress women of all shapes and sizes.

I’ve always loved to shop, and dress my friends. I even make my own clothes (sometimes) and know how garments should fit, and be worn.

(Yes, Barbie was my favourite toy – because she could do anything. Wear anything, do everything, perfectly coiffed and accessorized. And she had like, 5 horses.)

This blog is my view on things I see everyday. Women. Their body issues. Fashions. Accessorizing. Life. And maybe snippets of my former life as a touring performer. Maybe. If you’re good.

I hope that my writing helps you, makes you laugh, or at least, gives you something to read whilst you’re doing…whatever you’re doing.

Best,

Shannyn
