Whether it’s a casual outfit for my dance classes or to go out on the town to a special event, I enjoy putting together something that expresses who I am and what I like.
When I go shopping for clothes, I am always amazed at the creativity of the designers of these garments. It’s like going to an art museum and standing back to admire each painting. (That’s not to say I like everything.) The atmosphere of many stores is artistic and I enjoy looking at window displays, which is also an art.
I love the design of this asymmetrical skirt: black and white mini houndstooth, it has a belt and a slit at the side. Although this print could be used for a man’s suit, the style is ultra-feminine.
I found this cross-body bag this week while shopping with my friend Maggie. It was on sale and has lots of compartments to organize. I’ll be taking it with me to our holiday in Seattle. The tiny, black change purse is just big enough for a Canadian looney (that’s our coin worth one dollar).
When I get dressed, I choose clothes depending on what I’ll be doing or where I’ll be going, but also how I’m feeling. As I put my outfit together, I’m creating a look, a piece of art, like a flower arrangement. It’s the satisfaction people feel when painting, making a craft, writing a story, doing anything creative.
We can change our style as easily as changing our clothes! It all depends on our mood and occasion. Thank goodness we are free to choose what we wear and change as we please.
Fashion is art!
