Have you ever found an outfit or accessory that, the moment you saw it and put it on, it somehow changed you? Made you feel different? I’ve had that experience numerous times, but most recently, after I found a red wool fedora. The moment I saw it in the boutique, I fell in love with it. I confess second-guessing myself for a bit, though. I’d never seen one that color before, and wasn’t sure I could pull it off. “It’s so bright”, I thought. “I’ve never seen anyone else with it.” I walked away initially, but couldn’t stop thinking about it. After contemplating it for a few days, I went back for it and I’m so glad I did.
That’s the power of fashion, I think. It can lift your mood, change your outlook or even give you confidence when maybe you don’t really feel it. It can also instantly change an otherwise ordinary outfit into one that stands out, sets you apart. Pictured here is a simple “I’d Rather Be Shopping” t-shirt dress/bodycon found at TJ Maxx, a Forever 21 denim button-up and gladiator heels (www.nastygal.com). By themselves, it’s a cute enough ensemble. Add that pop of color, that hat, though, and it becomes something altogether different.
So, I encourage you to find that piece that speaks to you, makes you smile, makes you walk a little taller. Maybe it’s a hat, a pair of shoes, a dress. Whatever it is, wear it boldly and with pride. (Don’t be afraid to shine. It’s your right:)
