Alissa’s Style

I challenged myself at the beginning of this week to stop being lazy about my outfits just because i have nowhere to go, and instead start getting dressed up in clothes that make me feel good about myself that day. I was surprised just how much more empowered i've been feeling with this simple task. By putting on clothes i love, and doing so for no apparent reason besides deciding i want to, i've also been putting on confidence. What do you think? Will you try getting #AllDressedUp this week and see what it does for you?

I'm surprised at just how much more capable i feel as a blogger. I took a chance with this series, hoping it would lift my spirits some... And it did. I don't feel incapable and stuck as i did back on day 1. I'm excited about the future of this blog!

Dressing Up With Nowhere to Go – Day 6

The day didn't start out fantastic, but...I'm going to be fair to myself, with a focus on self-care and making sure i'm comfortable--first and foremost--while still pushing myself to do all that is necessary so that i feel accomplished at the end of the day. So i'll start off with comfy clothes and accepting that this post is being published later than the other ones were.

Oops. Two days in a row the title is not true. My family is going out this afternoon to see a play, and i decided to go with them. Funny how the week i decide to dress up despite having nowhere to go, i actually have places to go, huh?

Dressing Up With Nowhere to Go – Day 4


As you know, if you've been reading my previous posts: i've been dressing up every day this week, despite being home all the time, in an effort to keep me from getting depressed. Today is actually the "weekend" for me and my boyfriend, Cody... And we might want to enjoy some time away from the house. So, i might be dressing up with somewhere to go afterall!

Dressing Up With Nowhere to Go – Day 3

Starting your day off with one little thing that oozes confidence can go a long way in positively impacting your day--i think that's why dressing up is helping me so far...plus, by dressing up, you're carrying that confidence right over your skin....it's close and touchable, and therefore easier to remember. If you feel comfortable in your own skin, it's a little easier to feel comfortable with your mind and your soul.

A lot of people envy a work-at-home life, sitting around in pajamas all day. But i can't stand this anymore. Though i've always known i don't work my best unless i get up and dressed, i've still gotten caught in this lazy cycle. So, this week, i decided i'm going to get all dressed up, even though i have nowhere to go. Maybe this will help me, maybe it won't. Maybe it will just give me more to panic over. But i figure it couldn't be worse than just sitting around, having given up on trying.

Poshmark is a simple to use, social, fashion-buying-and-selling platform, particularly for creative fashion-enthusiasts--think Ebay meets Instagram. But way better. (At least in my opinion!) :)

What is “Poshmark”?


Serenity 3
An outfit styling based on the kind of person i want to be and qualities i hope to grow in this season of my life. Serenity, gentleness...Peace with myself and the world around me. Remembering my own past, but not letting it be the main thing to shape me. Allowing myself to grow, but not being angry about where i am at. Loosely inspired by traditional Japanese style and ideals.

I'll Be Honest - Fashion and Depression 1
I think honesty is important. Especially when it has to do with your emotional well being. I’ve been dealing with depression and huge personal changes. I don’t feel capable of writing anything else on this blog if i don’t open up about this. 2016 was a rough year for me […]
