My mother taught me a lot of things, but she did say one thing that continues to resonate most with me to this day: “If you don’t love yourself FIRST, no one else will.” I believe this is 100% true, and have always tried to “live” by it. And I hope I try to encourage you, my visitors to love your bodies (and yourselves) as you are now; it is so important to dress for your shape/body NOW, not for the body you dream of having one day. First comes love, all else follows…and if it doesn’t, that’s okay, ‘cuz you still have love!!
Anyway…These lovely canvas bags by Melissa Vest really inspire me, they would be fabulous shopping bags (I already have great grocery shopping bags, but I think I will try to start taking cute canvas bags with me to the mall – I have way too many Nordstrom/Saks/Barney’s bags already!)
