As I wrote yesterday, I want to challenge myself to dress up like I feel. For no special occasion, just for myself as something to enjoy. Actually, I mainly wear black. Dark black or middle-dark black combined with washed-out black, eventually really dark grey. :P But today, I thought it feels right to wear something colourful because it’s the last real hot day for this season – and black would have probably been an suboptimal choice for these temperatures. I fell for this red dress last year but never wore it, because there was no event. But we don’t need special events to dress up – and we don’t need to dress up for anyone but ourselves. And since I’m completely in Halloween mood, I had to choose an outfit that is kinda witchy, mystic and different from the rest of my causal wear.
But somehow, I really worried more about the length of the dress than ever – it’s definitely not too short, but rediscovering my style is an interesting process. There are so many things I love, but can I wear that, isn’t that too alternative, isn’t this too revealing? Whenever I worry, I try to find out whose voice I’m hearing - it’s definitely not my own. Finding the source of our insecurities helps a lot. Strange, how people can transform our self-perception. We should remember, whatever we do, we do it for ourselves and our well-being. It’s not important what others think as longs as it feels right to us.
