I realize that it’s been a while since I posted a recent outfit photo. I have not had access to a photographer in weeks now. However, lack of access to a photographer is not the only reason that I’ve been absent from my blog. A second project (more on that later), body image drama, and sudden on set “oh my God I’m 40 already” blues has been playing a part too. I am working on all of the above and I will be sharing my progress with you in future posts. For now, thank goodness that Robert was in the area and I got him to take a few shots including this one of me wearing a salmon colored button down long sleeve blouse that I bought from Chadwicks many moons ago. Chadwicks is a great online destination for affordable and practical style. I paired it with this glen plaid Ann Taylor trousers that I thrifted (similar), this leather Valerie Stevens jacket that I found on eBay and added the purple pouch for a much needed pop of color.  I wore this outfit to work.

XoXo, Natasha

Thanks Dionne. I think now that I stopped with the introspection I am starting to feel a little whole again. (-:

i know the big 4-0 can get some women down, but i was screaming it from the rooftops. i guess because i don’t “feel” 40…whatever that means. i used to buy things from Chadwicks. they have really good sales. that pouch is the business…love the color!

I was ok with turning 40 until the actual day of. I took time off from work, got my hair done, got my makeup professionally done and went to a little get together that my family organized. When I arrived, I sat in my car and all of the things that I hadn’t done yet suddenly flashed through my mind. I’m giving myself until Saturday to end my mourning.

About Chadwicks, I’ve shopped their clearance sales and I have to say it is really worth it. I have stuff that I bought from them years ago that has not been destroyed or faded after numerous spins in the washer and dryer.

Hey Tavia. Yes, girl I am 40. Ha Ha. I actually found the pouch on eBay. My bid of $10 was the winning bid. (-:
