I love fashion and this is the reason that I want to write in my blog on this topic. But I also want to share the ugly truth ..
I’ve heard different opinions on the topic “‘fashion” .. from women and men who love it and express themselves to the opposite side … people who think that this is vain and not important.
Today I want to share my experience and thoughts!
In my school years I’ve kept myself on point.. always well dressed (you know that phrase dress for the position that you want, not the position that you are currently in, right ?) and I’ve always wanted to look presentable. In my dreams I was Victoria Beckham I had my own fashion company and always looked great.
But something has happened and when I got accepted in my university something .. broke. I no longer made the effort to dress up and look nice. Besides clothes I also loved make up .. but no more.
And at this point it may seems vain to you but I will get to my point I promise!
A few years went by like this and I still wasn’t being myself .. I had the twisted thought that I don’t need to look like before because people won’t get me seriously. (Remember the movie Legally Blonde .. yeah that’s what I’m talking about.)
As I’ve mentioned before my major in university was information broker and some of the professors didn’t think that this is a “girls profession” and there were times that I’ve received different treatment because I was a girl. I was afraid that if I put my outfit together it will be worse!
But now I’ve come to realize that it’s all bunch of crap! I’m sorry but that is the truth.
Fast forward to today ..
Today I’ve had a crazy day.. I had to go to work .. my schedule was full and here comes the realization ..
I was having lunch and then I had to buy present and go back to the office super quick. But in the morning I was doing the usual “just throw something and go” and because of that I had on me the most uncomfortable pare of jeans and t-shit. It was super hot outside my jeans were falling down because .. they are not for my body type (but I’ve bought them a long time ago and I didn’t care) and I was so frustrated that I wasn’t being comfortable and my body was showing .. parts that you don’t need to see .. You feel me, right?
And when I got back in the office I was so sweaty and uncomfortable.. I was sitting on my deck preparing to give the gift that I’ve bought and I felt miserable.
And then I’ve realized .. you dress up in the morning so you can go with your day and do the important things and not bother for the uncomfortable pair of jeans and awful T-shirt.
And this is really important if I don’t feel comfortable and good in my skin and outfit my performance on curtain things goes down .. and this is not good. And I don’t think that it’s vain to care how you look it’s crucial how you look and feel.
It’s for your own comfort.
Before when someone talked about fashion and how is not important I thought that this was ridiculous but I couldn’t use a proper example. Now I have one..
And from tomorrow I will make sure that I’m becoming me again and dress up and feel great!
I’m really curious am I the only one or it’s common? If you ever felt that way share with me in the comments or feel free to say “Hi” from the contact page. And if you have a friend with the same problem you can share the blog post!
I wish you a wonderful day and will see you next time to continue the fashion talk!
