One of my favorite things about getting dressed is that it gives you the chance to tell the world who it is you’ve decided to be that day I am all for finding your style and sticking with it, but I also think it’s fun to every so often put together an outfit that almost feels like a costume. Perhaps its my theatrical background (MT4LYFE!), but sometimes just putting on the clothes helps me embrace a certain aspect of my personality, and just for a day, I get to play a slightly different version of me.
For example, something about this outfit kind of makes me feel like a rebel. Nothing about the individual pieces are necessarily that tough (yes, I am wearing a leather jacket, but unless you’re the Fonz or Kenickie, that doesn’t really mean much), but somehow when I put them all together I feel like someone who showed up to kick ass and chew bubble gum (and I am all out of bubble gum). And if, because of that, perhaps I walk a bit taller, sneer a little harder, and don’t take no guff from nobody? Well, I am 100% on board.
That is what I think is so powerful about the clothes you choose to wear; sometimes, your outside helps influence your inside and gives you just that little extra boost you need to get through whatever it is the day decides to throw your way. So today, I am a badass. Tomorrow, who knows?
