The Covid-19 stay-at-home-order has put us all in casual dress mode.

I can’t remember the last time I dressed up–even our Easter photo opt. proved to be casual (at least from the waist down!).  My daughter didn’t even have dress shoes since she left college during her spring break, unprepared to come home for the year.

Even though I’m a Dramatic who loves fashion and makeup, my Natural side loves being stuck at home.  I don’t miss my heels at all!

How about you?

I’ve been rather amazed, however, at how much traffic one particular blog is still getting. Since I wrote it in 2012, it has always been my most popular post, but I am surprised that it is even more popular right now during a time when we are all so socially inactive.

Apparently, social distancing does not stop the Beauty Battle within.

Most women HATE, HIDE or get HUNG UP on their appearance, no matter who they are around or six feet apart from! Perhaps the extra time to think and surf social media is bringing up some self-confidence and Image Issues.

This is why I readdressed Proverbs 31:30 last week and the reason I will go into it further next week. It is also why I am reposting the old blog here today.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the most common question, “If I want to be beautiful, am I vain?
