when the excitement fizzles out skirt
the other day, i was wearing what i would call a tried-and-true outfit -- one that has seen many wears*. although i am still fond of the outfit and happy wearing it, i find myself no longer excited about wearing it. it feels like i have been seen in the outfit so many times and ... well ... maybe it hasn't lead to the understanding of me that i thought it would lead to. my desire for new clothes isn't so much about having another new thing as much as it is about having a new way to present myself to the world. i think that, deep down, one of the few things that every person wants from everyone around him or her is to be understood. different people go about telling their stories in different ways. for me, clothing is very definitely a means of expressing myself. perhaps when i feel i am truly understood will be the day when i will no longer need that next new piece of clothing.
*to be clear, i am not talking about the outfit pictured in this post.
i am wearing the alpen top, the brasilia dress, the amazing skirt and the tokyo hat (with added pin) by kaliyana. my pullover is by grizas. i am wearing the noon boot (box collection) by trippen.
