Fashion has this incredible ability to immediately put you in a mood…or in some cases, snap you out of one (retail therapy, anyone?!).
The second I laid eyes on this skirt, I wanted it…I needed it…I bought it. But not because its super flattering (which it kindof isn’t…and I am fine with that), or because it was super practical…but because it made me happy. It made me want to twirl. It made me feel girly and flouncy. IT MADE ME FEEL GOOD.
And when it boils down to it, isn’t that one of the emotional purposes of getting dressed everyday? Isn’t it the best feeling ever when an outfit can put a smile on your face?! Not everyone will like how this skirt makes my hips appear fuller. Some of you might say that this skirt isn’t the best choice for my body.
But you know what?!
I LIKE IT. I LIKE THE REFLECTION OF IT IN THE MIRROR. AND FOR ME, THE HAPPINESS IT BRINGS ME IS ENOUGH.
Is there an article of clothing in your closet that always puts a smile on your face no matter what?
