Carpe Diem. The fashion way. | misskookie's Blog
I’m becoming a slave to fashion. Clothes are slowly starting to take over my brain. In this past week I can’t remember a day passing without me being on the Net looking at something fashion related. I love going through my closet, trying stuff on, creating new combos. I guess I’ve just always had this style animal inside me waiting to be released. It wasn’t how I was brought up. My mom believed in only dressing up for special occasions. She even used to encourage me to save my new underwear for when we were going somewhere special. Ha ha, I still get a laugh out of that one.
I’m the total opposite now that I’m an adult. I’ve built up a very versatile wardrobe, (say good riddance to my consistent T-shirt and hoodie days) and carefully add specific pieces every so often. I’m lucky enough to be able to look good every day, so why not take advantage of it? I don’t mean dressing to the nines every single day, but you can still really look in a shirt and jeans if you know how.
The whole idea of saving a certain outfit for a special day is ridiculous, IMHO. And it extends to other parts of our life. (here’s why I go all Dr Phil on you and tell you why saving those shoes of yours is the reason you didn’t get that promotion :D ) but seriously speaking, one of the most important lessons I’ve learnt this year is to live in the moment and make the most out of every day. Carpe diem. That should seriously be my new mantra.
Looking good every day works wonders for your self esteem and for your image. You’d be surprised at the tiny things people notice. Try it. And you’re welcome, in advance.
