Do you have a piece of clothing or an accessory that just picks you up? A pair of shoes that lifts your mood every time you slip them on?
I do. And I was silly enough to not bring it with me. (It's funny that I miss the two of the most ridiculous & impractical pieces of my wardrobe: my petticoat & my oxford stilettos.) My pink tutu just makes things better magically--seeing it makes me smile, wearing it makes me feel better, and getting people's reactions is always fabulous. It usually makes other people smile, or laugh, or just shake their heads, but however they respond, it's kind of nice to brighten places up & have people take things a little less seriously for a moment.
So today, for various reasons, a pink petticoat would've really come in handy. Instead I wore pretty much the opposite--a grey wool skirt--and that definitely reflects how things went.
But that's one of the things I love most about fashion: the way it can really change how you feel. It has the power to transform you. A girl can put on a fabulous dress and it can give her that little boost of confidence she needs. It changes people's impressions of you and can alter your perspective of yourself. In an ideal world, we'd have these things figured out in ourselves already, but for now, it's nice to have a helping hand sometimes.
Or maybe this is just nonsense from a sleepy teenage girl. But, your thoughts?
