I haven't been posting as much as I want. I work full time and have been doing so for around six months now. When I'm dressing for work I tend to stick to the same shapes, patterns and pieces. All the clothing that I love and feel like myself in, tends to get left for afternoons and weekends.
Why? Why should I force myself to wear dowdy or "professional" clothing that a) doesn't make me feel happy and b) doesn't really show any personality.
I've recently come to the conclusion that dressing up, creating an outfit is something that I enjoy and I want to do it everyday. These are supposedly the best days of my life. I want to live them my way and as petulant as it sounds, wear what I want. I don't want to look back and shudder at the days I spent in black suits and striped poly cotton blouses.
