I have made it one of my goals this year to stop looking less like a baglady and more like a handbag lady. I don't think I own any handbags. What's the difference between a handbag and a purse? Is a handbag the same thing as a pocketbook? I thought a pocketbook was a wallet. Why are there so many names for "small place to put your crap"?
Anyway, I've started following a few fashion blogs. Mainly this girl and this girl and this girl. Because it seems like I have all these clothes, but I never know how to wear any of them. Learning how to wear clothes shouldn't be such a difficult task, but if you're me, and you've recently had to add words to your vocabulary like "flats" and "accessory" and "handbag" (I'm going to keep using that one in random contexts until somebody tells me I've done it right), then you can understand that it is a very difficult task indeed.
I guess I have to man up and stop saying "I'm a poet, I can dress like a baglady" and start saying "I'm a poet, but I still have to look like a human being."
