Hello my Wendybirds!
I’m excited to be back in Neverland, Ohio – writing for The K-Chron. My first book “Ask Wendy” was a success and I am now voraciously working on my second. You can help me out by asking me any questions you’ve got (using the submission form in the sidebar) – I’ll answer some of them in my weekly column every Thursday – and I’ll even answer some of them in a LIVE A.M.A. scheduled in a few weeks (more info to come.)
There is a guy I really really like, we went out a couple of time, and I enjoy being with him. I think he enjoys being with me. But nothing happened. He told me he was focusing on his work. I really think I am the one for him and he is the one for me.
What can I do to make it happen?
I am so afraid of what could happen if he rejects me and that it breaks our friendship.
Can you help me, Wendy?
-BLEU IN NEVERLAND
If only we could make love happen! Life would be so much easier then. If we could just point a magic wand and yell, “ACCIO LOVE!”
But unfortunately that’s just not how life works…and to be honest, love wouldn’t be as magical and special if it did. All you can do is respect his wishes, stay friends, and see if things change naturally…BUT don’t put your own life and heart on pause waiting for him! Keep both open, you never know where or when love will suddenly appear…just like magic.
Till next time My Darlings!
I can’t seem to get over a guy that I really like. I know he doesn’t like me, but he only knows of the over-achieving nerd everyone makes me out to be. I just wish a.) he let me have an honest conversation with him, or b.) I’d get over him.
It sounds to me like the way to get over him is to have that honest conversation with him. Right now you’ve got all these feelings and thoughts inside you, and they are going to stay there until you let them out. It won’t be easy to tell him these things, I know, and if you feel like you can’t do it in person you could always write him a letter…but in the end you’ve got to do what is best for you and your heart and that’s letting these feelings out. Please let me know how it goes!
Till next time, My Darlings!
Honestly, could there be a more perfect birthday outfit than ModCloth’s You’re In Luck Dress in Pie? This charmingly retro Bea & Dot dress pairs wonderfully with a vintage purse and gloves (Of course I have gloves, doesn’t everyone?), and my peach bow belt added just a touch of whimsy. I kinda wish I could live in it.
A hint of lace, a field of flowers and a cinched-in waist, I just want to be twirled around in someone’s arms when I put on ModCloth’s The Way It Grows Dress in Azure. Okay, I kinda want that all the time, but ESPECIALLY in something this Darling (pun intended). I tossed on my cream cardi to complete the look, because…me.
I absolutely love the extra swing in my step I get just from putting on ModCloth’s Adorable Artist Dress in Plaid by Effie’s Heart. It drapes and twirls so perfectly and with the right accessories can transition from work to a night on the town. Here I paired it with a lilac cardi for a little color. Here’s hoping I get to wear it to a new job soon!
Hello, my darlings! Since the purpose of KensingtonChronicle.com is to bring the paper into the digital age, we’ve decided that, going forward, my advice column will be accepting online submissions as well. If you have a question you think I might be able to answer, fill out the form on the right side of the “Dear Darling” page and I’ll do my best to help!
Wendy here, using my own personal LookBook account. But of course it’s me, because who else would have access to my computer? You might have seen me– er, my fabulous brother, Michael, wearing this Nadia Tarr dress on MY latest Dear Darling column. The shoes say “Coach” on them, and the pearl necklace was lovingly borrowed from our mom’s jewelry box.
It’s hard not to feel pretty and giddy in British designer Emily and Fin’s Too Much Fun Dress in Rainbow from ModCloth. I top it off with my pink cardigan (And yes, I have a thing for stripes. And cardis. No apologies.) so I can start wearing it long before summer reaches Neverland. This time I wore it with nude wedges, because…height, but there are endless possibilities for mixing and matching shoes and sweaters and accessories here. How do you wear it?
I love this combo of ModCloth’s Cake Decorating Class Dress with its pleats, piping and darling Peter Pan collar (wink) and ModCloth’s Charter School Cardigan in Froyo. It adds a delicious pop of color. I usually toss on my floral keds with it, so I feel like I’m always walking through a meadow (on my way to dessert apparently!). It captures such a whimsically retro fun vibe.
