FASHION: Get Dressed In Less Than 15 Minutes… or Less

Happy Sunday, Lillers! (A nickname I’m trying to get off the ground)

THIS COMING WEEK, Colin Quinn and I will both answer the question, “Vaseline or Lubiderm?” …Right before that, I want you to meet another side of me. You have encountered insecure Lillian, crazy Lillian… Now, meet Lazy Fashionista Lillian. On average, as many as five people a year ask me from where I summon the imagination and creative genius to throw my various get-ups together. I owe it to these five fine individuals to clear a few things up:

I never lay my outfits out the night before and if I take longer than 15 minutes getting dressed in the morning, I’m doing it so wrong. In fact, my only method to the madness of morning assembling is to have one color (or one certain item) in mind. From there, I construct my ensemble one piece at a time, each new element clicking with the last while complementing my garb wholly. It’s not the friggin’ Sistine Chapel but my outfits are not bad for a girl who used to wear baggy turtlenecks with Dungarees to middle school EVERY. DAMN. DAY. So, if you will, 3 recent examples–all items accessibly priced:

  1. Wow, I really love these outfits! If there is anyone in this world that has a harder time finding an outfit in the morning, it is definitely me. I always love accessorizing and I can never decide what jewelry to wear! I have so much and I am always looking for a good fashion jewelry sale to add to my collection. I will definitely try some of these outfits out, thanks for sharing!
