This changed a few weeks ago when I discovered a very inspiring blog: Thrift me Pretty, by Stasia Savasuk, a creative fashion sylist who makes dressing up in the morning fun and empowering. Her premise is that if you want to feel amazing, you must wear clothes that reflect who you are. She realized how important this was the day she finally let her six year old daughter, Raisa, dress the way she wanted to. After wearing dresses throughout her childhood, Raisa tried on a boys shirt and tie, and exclaimed, exited: I look so handsome! I can run faster! I can jump higher!
That’s how I want to feel every day.
All this helped me realize that I was dressing carelessly. The consecuence was that I felt uncaring. I thought that dressing with no flair was comfortable and took little time, but the truth is that it made me feel dull and voiceless.
I justified it by thinking that I was saving my things for a special ocasion, but I am an artist who works alone from home and sells online. When was I going to have that kind of ocasion! Why not make every day feel special, and why not look as creative on the outside as I feel on the inside? I finally get to enjoy my clothes, combine them in interesting ways, and feel happy with the outcome. The best part is that I can now design the kind of bold jewelry I have always wanted to wear.
