Recently, I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and attended a blogger event here in Vegas.
You would probably never guess it but I am VERY uncomfortable walking into a place by myself. So much so, that I have never attended any events before this day.
I think it’s two reasons.
One : I’m super insecure. Yeah, my insecurities have prevented me from accomplishing a lot of things, but I’m trying to work on that. Going someplace I’ve never been with people I don’t know? That’s SCARY!
Two : My poor eyesight. Seriously, I can’t see two feet in front of me. So if you’re asking me to walk into a venue and look for someone? That ain’t happening!
But recently, I sucked it up, put on my finest thrift fashion and walked through that door into a room full of people I didn’t know and had the best time!
Here’s what I wore.
This Mod Cloth skirt has been sitting in my closet for probably six months now. This brand is pretty pricey (average $50-$70 for a skirt).
I scored it for $2.99.
Did you notice the POCKETS?!!
One of the reasons I haven’t worn it before is because I didn’t have the right top.
I scored this Scott Taylor silk blend top for only $4.24.
FYI : Orange is my favorite color but doesn’t look good on me. This shade of orange though? It does!
With all the money I save on clothing, I’m able to spend more on my shoes. These cute espadrilles were on clearance at the Steve Madden store. They were around $35.00
It was SO nice hanging with other like minded women ( business owners, bloggers and entrepreneurs )who are there to support each other.
Of course, I was the oldest one there. LOL
I’m so happy and proud of myself that I stepped out of my comfort zone.
What is holding YOU back?
Take that first step!!!!!
