Hello my fellow readers,
There are often moments in life when you feel weak, and everything seems to tumble down upon you as if simultaneously and purposely. It could be more than tough to go through these experiences, especially if not many people, who you can share this with, will understand what you are fighting through. However, you can always put a mask on your beautiful visage, and display that mask to the world. Let others wonder why are you so happy, when in reality, you might be going mad and working through every single situation by yourself. Yet, I’ll always be here to support you. The comment section wasn’t merely made for comments regarding my newest outfit or my newest post, but it was also created to share feelings and express various emotions. The comment section and social media are two ways I manage to connect with you, my fellow readers, so if you ever have something to express but there is nobody around, I’m here, sitting on a New York City fire escape that is overlooking my backyard, at 8:58 PM, to hear from and listen to you.
Sometimes, even if life seems to be less perfect, you could change it up with your outfit. You do not have to be enormously rich to buy a beautiful, little spring dress, because there are always H&M and Zara sales. You don’t even need the sweet pair because there is always Forever 21. However, if you do not live in North America, you should look for stores with inexpensive designs, yet, the clothing that is being sold seems authentic, great quality, and personal. You make up a kick-ass, confident outfit, and go on with your day. There are certain pieces I keep in my closet, and when I wear them, I feel more than a teenager-I feel like a girl boss. I could conquer the world just by wearing my favorite, accurately-tailored dress, and feel more than just physical beauty. There are so many things one could feel from wearing certain clothing pieces that could not be experienced in any other way. That is the reason behind my logic that clothing is magic. It could make you feel powerful, or it could make you feel beautiful, depending on how you would like to feel on a certain day.
Clothing has power, and that is why I play around with it. The outfit that I have decided to present in this post makes me feel confident, strong, powerful, and feel like the person I want to be in the future: editor-in-chief of one of the fashion publications, however, I’m not going to reveal which one. Just like outfits, one has to keep a secret in order to be mysterious.
Karl Lagerfeld once said: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.” Although this may seem rude or mean to some, I have to agree with the creative director and designer of Chanel. Unfortunately, we do not live in a world where somebody is capable to judge your inner self just by glancing at you, but, we do judge each other by how we look and what we wear. You have the freedom of wearing whatever you would like, yet, I’m choosing to express myself through different clothing items that will often not belong in the “sports-clothing” aisle or online “fitness wear” tab. The main ideas of my article are: you could fool the world with clothing, and you would be surprised when you realize that the world that seemed to be crashing down on you is not breaking down any longer. You are in charge, you are the power, and all of that could be attributed to clothing pieces you may have bought in a thrift shop (I love some thrift shops in NYC), yet, you feel as a CEO of the largest companies, or a Vogue cover girl. It all depends on you, and the mask and the outfit you choose to wear.
Thank you for reading, and stay strong.
