Frills and Thrills—All Dolled Up

“I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes every day, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.”
Sophie Kinsella, Confessions of a Shopaholic


There’s no denying what a new outfit can do to boost your mood. Certain other factors (50% discount anyone?) are simply the jewel on the ring. Even an old favorite makes you feel hugged and caressed in all the right places.

And it’s not just clothes.

Every one of us has gotten the new haircut that we can’t stop touching. Learning a new makeup technique or trying a new color is enough to keep you batting your lashes all day.

This is to say nothing of shoes.

Then there is the why of it all. A night out with your girls; a romantic date; a photoshoot—especially a boudoir photo shoot—is more than an excuse to get dolled up. 

Or dolled down.

Something lacey and delicate or silky and smooth underneath it all makes you feel like you have a secret you just can’t wait to share. But at the end of the day, seeing the look on his face when you’ve donned your frills is undoubtedly the biggest thrill of them all. But it shouldn’t just be all about them, it should be about you too. Because girl, you are so worth it.
